    With great sadness, we regret to inform you of the passing of Rabbi Sholom DovBer Sanowicz, OB”M, a patriarch of a large family of Shluchim and Mechanchim. He passed away on Shabbos, Hei Kislev. He was 93-years-old.

    His father, Harav Hachasid Chaim Yitzchok, HY”D, was sent to Odessa by the Frierdiker Rebbe to strengthen the chassidim of Odessa, where he was born. At the height of communist persecution, he was sent with Mesiras Nefesh  – at a very young age – to Tomchei Temimim in Kutaisi, Georgia together with his brother R’ Azriel OB”M. Later, he went on to become a Talmid Muvhak of the Mashpia R’ Nissen Nemanov, in Brunoy, where he was one of the founding bochurim. He  devoted himself in his later years to  publishing R’ Nissen’s Biurim on Tanya, which he had transcribed as his Talmid. He later became a Shochet upon the request of the Frierdiker Rebbe. Although he arrived in the USA with nothing,  he became successful in business, which he entered upon the recommendation of the Rebbe. He recently founded a generous Gmach for Shluchim.

    He was passionate in his quest and devotion for learning, and rarely was found without a Sefer in hand. In his later years, he gave Shiurei Gemarah in various Shuls in Crown Heights and was a Maggid Shiur in Yeshiva Chovevei Torah. In addition to his sefer on  R’ Nissan’ Biurim on Tanya, he recently published a Sefer, Maaseh Sholam, based on his Chidushim and Shiurim. A noted Baal Tefillah, he davened for many years by the Amud at 770 before the Rebbe. His life personified Torah and Tefillah until his last day.

    He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Sarah E. Sanowicz (nee Lokshin) and his children: Rabbi Chaim Yitzchok Sanowicz, Los Angeles, CA;  Rabbi Nachman Sanowicz, Crown Heights; Mrs. Hindy Kalmenson, New Haven, CT; Mrs. Reevy Pevzner, Paris, France; Mrs. Rashi Itkin, Scranton, PA; Rabbi Zalmy Sanowicz, Crown Heights; Rabbi Yossi Sanowicz, Montreal, Canada; Mrs. Chanie Hertz, Bensonhurst, NY; and Mrs. Dinie Gorman, Toronto, Canada and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    The Levaya will be taking place at Shomrei Hadas, on Sunday at 11:15 AM, and will pass by 770 at 12:30 PM.

    The family will be sitting Shiva at 622 Empire Blvd.
