    With great pain and sadness, we inform you of the passing of Rabbi Zalman Baras, OB”M, Mashpia in the Cincinnati Yeshiva. He passed away today, Thursday, Lamed Adar Rishon. He was 38-years-old.

    For the past few years he was suffering from a terrible illness, with hundreds around the world saying Tehillim, Davening and taking Hachlotos in his honor.

    Rabbi Baras was a beloved Mashpia, who was one of the pillars of Yeshivas Lubavitch Cincinnati. He has personally overseen the development of hundreds of young boys into productive young adults.

    After his Chasunah, to Nechama Dina Shusterman, from Australia, Rabbi Baras was a teacher in Oholei Torah for a short period, before moving to Cincinnati.

    He is survived by his wife Nechama Dina (nee Shusterman) and seven little children.

    He is also survived by his parents, Sholom and Miriam Baras of Crown Heights; grandparents Motel and Sarah Dubinsky of Kensington, NY and siblings; Yosef Yitzchak Baras – Kingston, PA; Mendy Baras – Cedarhurst, NY; Nechemala Minsky – Crown Heights and Chayale Berkowitz – Kingston, PA.

    The Levaya will take place Friday, leaving Shomrei Hadas in Boro Park at around 9:30 am and passing by 770 at around 10:30 am.

    Rabbi Baras leaves behind a beautiful family, with the oldest child only 12 years old. The family is now all on their own, grieving for their father and husband.

    They must have financial support, and friends of the family have set up an urgent campaign to help them.

    3. After I left Cincinnati, I couldn’t find a mashpia, that I felt understand me, that I was comfortable with like Rabbi Bares. So I continued to call Rabbi Bares every time I needed advice and guidance. And honestly the effect that he had on me was truly everlasting, much of the way I am today is thanks to him. Last year a little before yud shvat, after hearing he was fully cured from his sickness, I wanted to call him for a mashpia talk, so I texted asking if we can speak. He responded, tomorrow should be good. The next day I called him, but he didn’t pick up the phone, he called me back later, but I couldn’t pick up the phone because it was during sader in yeshiva. This back and forth happened several times. I thought it was kind of strange, I thought, doesn’t Rabbi Bares know the sader of yeshivas. Eventually I get through to him, he sounded very excited to speak to me, and we spoke for close to an hour probably. Then he mentioned sorry for the back and forth, some times I feel very not good so I wasn’t able to take your call. Over yud shvat I asked around and right away found out that he got yenemachle again.
      That is just one of the many stories I can say that demonstrate, what a caring, sincere, real person he was.
      Rabbi Bares the tears are endless. I’ll remember you and you’ll truly be a part of me forever.
      Ad mosai, Ad mosai, Ad mosai!!
