Boruch Dayan Ha’emes: Rav Ovadia Gochafi, OBM

With great sadness we inform you of the passing of Rav Ovadia ben Shalom Gochafi, chief Rabbi of Ramat Gan, Israel. Rav Ovadia was a great Talmid Chacham who got his Smicha at a very young age, and came from a lineage of prominent Rabbanim, Poskim, and Talmedai Chachamim.

He is survived by his 10 sons and daughter: Rabbi Yehoshua Gochafi (Crown Heights), Rabbi Gideon Gochafi, Rabbi Rachamim Gochafi, Rabbi Rephael Gochafi, Rabbi Avner Gochafi, Rabbi Chaim Gochafi, Rabbi Michael Gochafi, Rabbi Netzach Gochafi, Rabbi Mordechai Gochafi, Rabbi Yochai Gochafi, and Rebbetzin Yaffa Gadasi (all from Israel).
