Rabbi Yoseph Toledano Passes Away at 99

Rabbi Yoseph Toledano, who led the Ateret Baruch congregation of Bnei Brak for many years, passed away, Thursday afternoon, at the age of 99. His funeral was scheduled to start at 4:00 p.m.

Toledano was the son of kabbalistic Rabbi Raphael Baruch Toledano and the uncle of recently-deceased Rabbi Nissim Toledano. He was known for his righteousness and teaching. One student called on the public to study Mishnayot and recite psalms on behalf of the rabbi's soul.
