HaRav Avigdor Miller zts"l INN:Toras Avigdor

Thousands of mourners gathered at the Mirrer Yeshiva in Jerusalem yesterday for the funeral of Rabbi Avigdor Miller, a leading Torah scholar in New York who died Friday at the age of 93. His books and tapes of hundreds of his lectures are familiar to English-speaking Jews around the globe. He was buried on the Mt. of Olives. Leading rabbis such as Hevron Yeshiva Head Rabbi Shmuel Berenshtain and Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch eulogized him, and one said that Rabbi Miller was the "Avraham Avinu [Patriarch Abraham] of our time, in his fight against the prevailing misguided notions of the day.\" One of his students told Arutz-7 today that Rabbi Miller delivered 28-30 Torah lectures each week. Between 10,000 and 20,000 mourners participated in the first part of his funeral in Brooklyn on Sunday.
