    Born in 5696 to Rabbi Shalom and Chaya Posner, he was first sent by the Rebbe to Eretz Yisroel following the 5716 terrorist attack in Kfar Chabad that left four students and their teacher dead.

    The attack shocked and traumatized the residents of the village, and the Rebbe sent a group of Shluchim to comfort and encourage them. While the other members of the delegation returned to Crown Heights, Rabbi Posner received an instruction from the Rebbe to remain in the Holy Land.

    Two years later, he returned to Crown Heights, and the Rebbe instructed him to return to Eretz Yisroel and begin teaching in Reshet Oholei Yosef Yitzchok network of Chabad schools.

    In the years since then, he has served as a member of the administration of the Central Yeshiva Tomchei Tmimim Lubavitch in Israel, and mashpia in the Chabad Yeshivos in Lod and Bnei Brak.

    He was predeceased by his wife Yehudis Posner obm two years ago.

    He is survived by children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who follow in his ways, many of whom serve as Shluchim around the world.

    He is survived by his children Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Posner – Birmingham, Alabama; Rabbi Menachem Mendel Posner – Plantation, Florida; Rabbi Shmuel Posner – Davie, Florida; Mrs. Aliza Naparstek – Kfar Chabad; Mrs. Chana Liberow – Flatbush, NY; Mrs. Liora Popper – Crown Heights, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
