Funeral of Rav Moshe Twersky

Rabbi Moshe Twersky was escorted to his final resting place by 3,500 mourners today.

“G-d gave us a special soul…if there are 36 hidden righteous people in a generation, we merited to have one right here,” said one of his students.


Twersky was 59 years old, and the head of a Kollel (rabbinical study program) in Yeshiva Toras Moshe in Jerusalem. The Yeshiva is primarily for American students who come to study in Israel for a year after high school, though Twersky taught older and advanced students.

Twersky was the grandson of Rabbi Joseph Soleveitchik. His father, Rabbi Yitzchak (Isadore) Twersky, was both a rabbi and a professor in Harvard.

He leaves behind a wife, Miriam, and five children.
