Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein

The Board of Deputies is deeply saddened by the passing of Rav Aharon Lichtenstein one of the great leaders of modern Orthodoxy in our generation. A man of great Torah learning and extensive secular education he was possessed of a deep humanity and spirituality. President Vivian Wineman said “like all those who met him I was hugely impressed by his combination of modesty, kindness and profound erudition in both Torah learning and secular matters. He was a worthy recipient of the Israel prize and will be greatly missed”
