    With great sadness we inform you of the sudden and untimely passing of Rabbi Dovid Steigman, OB”M, a beloved member of the Crown Heights community who dedicated his life to the cause of Kashrus. He was 67 years old.

    Rabbi Steigman started working for the OK Kosher Certification in 1988, as a shochet in Boston, and was recognized for his excellent interpersonal skills. Rabbi Steigman lived in Crown Heights and later moved to Boro Park.

    In his 30 year career at the OK, he served as a Senior Rabbinic Coordinator at OK Kosher and was also highly sought after for his vast knowledge of kosher beverages, including high end alcoholic beverages and the related kosher concerns.

    This morning, while in Italy to supervise a cheese production facility, he was found in his hotel room after not showing up to the factory as scheduled. The cause of death is unknown at this time.

    “He had Mesiras Nefesh for Kashrus,” said his co-worker of many decades, Rabbi Chaim Fogelman.

    “He was extremely loved by all who had the pleasure of working alongside him. He had this aura of calmness about him; he was the go-to man whenever there was a problem, and he always found a way to diffuse the situation,” Rabbi Fogelman said.

    He is survived by his wife, Shulamis and children, Mendy Steigman – Boro Park, Rochie Kirszenberg – Midwood, Brooklyn, Effie Steigman – Crown Heights, Chumy Delevkovitz – Crown Heights, Chaim Meir Steigman – Crown Heights and Mechy Steigman – Midwood, Brooklyn.
