With great sadness we report the passing of Rabbi Berel Zisman OBM, a holocausts survivor and member of the board of the Central Lubavitcher Yeshiva. He passed away on Friday, the 28th of Adar, 5781.

He was 92 years old.

Berel survived the holocaust and after meeting Rebbetzin Chana, became her messenger to bring tidings to the Rebbe in New York.

Rabbi Zisman would later sit on the board of the Central Lubavitcher Yeshiva before moving to North Miami Beach.

He is survived by his wife Judith, and children Shragi Zisman, Eli Zisman, Chaya Moster, and Sharon Zisman.

The Levaya will take place Sunday, passing by 770 Eastern Parkway at 10:45am and will be at the Old Montefiore Cemetery at approximately 11:45am.

Shiva information to be announced.

    Rabbi Zisman’s courage, faith and positive energy is truly an inspiration reflected in the love and respect of his large family and very many friends. It was an honor knowing him and having him share his knowledge and experience as Vice President of the Marbella Board of Directors and to daven with him during the pandemic in our building’s minyan Bais Marbella. His memory should be a blessing and his family should be comforted and know much happiness in the future.
