Our Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Groner was niftar this morning.

My sincerest sympathy goes out to Rebbitzen Groner, his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

From the Yeshivah Community website (updated 3:15pm):

It was Rabbi Groner's explicit wish to be buried in Eretz Yisroel and arrangement are being made to facilitate this.

There will be a Levaya/Tehillim service held in Yeshivah and details, time of service will be announced. In respect to the family members, the community is asked not to be contacting them directly as details will be posted on this website.

People may come to say Tehillim for Rabbi Groner A"H at the Melbourne Chevra Kadisha 115 - 119 Inkerman Street, St Kilda.

The Chevra Kadisha will remain open to facilitate people to say Tehillim.

Details of the communal service/Tehillim will be announced as they are forthcoming.
