    With great sadness we inform you of the passing of Hagaon Harav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman, OB”M, one of the most widely respected Poskim of Jewish law in the Charedi community, he passed away Tuesday morning at the age of 104.

    Officials at the Maayanei Hayeshua Hospital in Bnei Brak noted earlier Tuesday morning a significant deterioration in the rabbi’s condition. Shortly after the hospital released the statement, Rabbi Shteinman passed away.

    At the beginning of last month, Rabbi Shteinman, 104, was hospitalized for a week, at the end of which he was released to his home under the supervision of his personal physician.

    Rabbi Shteinman was considered the leader of the Lithuanian haredi Jewry.

    Rabbi Shteinman studied in Lithuanian yeshivot between the two world wars. In his early twenties he was first appointed as a teacher, and in the 80-some years since then he taught Torah, in yeshivot in Switzerland and in Israel.

    His public involvement began in the 1960s, when he focused mainly on encouraging the opening of kollel studies in Israel. He served as an adviser and mentor on education in the Lithuanian community.

    Rabbi Shteinman wrote about thirty books, including a series of books on the Babylonian Talmud and the Torah.

    The Levaya took place today in Bnei Brak with hundreds of thousands in attendance.
