The Jewish Press joins Klal Yisrael in mourning the loss of Rav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg, a world renowned Talmudist and posek, longtime rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Ore in Jerusalem, and one of the foremost figures in the yeshiva world for three quarters of a century.
Recognized in his early years as a Talmudic prodigy, he developed a reputation for heroic immersion in Torah study, often at the price of great physical deprivation. A prolific writer, he authored several important works, including Tabaas Hachoshen, a comprehensive analysis and explanation of the seminal classic Ktsos Hachoshen, by R. Aryeh Leib HaCohen Heller, long regarded as an essential exploration of the Torah laws governing business and financial transactions.
Over the years he directed the education of thousands of students, many of whom went on to leadership positions in Jewish religious, educational and communal circles.
May his memory be a blessing.
