First Publish: 5/20/2003, 7:32 PM

Two funerals took place in Jerusalem this week for Torah giants who passed away this week. Rabbi Tuvia Goldstein, who headed Yeshivat Emek Halakhah in Brooklyn for some 30 years, passed away on Friday night in New York. Over 1,000 people attended his funeral in Jerusalem yesterday afternoon, prior to his burial at Har HaMenuchot. He was a student-comrade of the famed Rabbi Moshe Feinstein - whose nephew, Rabbi Yechiel Michel Feinstein, 96, was buried in Jerusalem the day before. Thousands of people attended his funeral, which began in Bnei Brak, where he headed a large yeshiva.
