A granddaughter was born to Rabbi Mordechai Sternberg, ZT'L, the Rosh HaYeshiva Yehsuivat Har Hamor, who was niftar yesterday at the age of 74, on the day of his funeral Tuesday.
The child was born to Ephraim and Emuna Shachor, Rabbi's Sternberg's son-in-law and daughter.
During the levayah, Rabbi Avichai Sternberg, son of Rabbi Mordechai Sternberg, gave a eulogy: "There is no substitute for a father. We were lucky to have a father and more than that - we are lucky to have a father. He was a father who was so present in the lives of his children, a grandfather who was present in the lives of his grandchildren - and that presence was not only expressed in the practical contexts - but in a personality that was present and found in each of the children and grandchildren. We were part of our father - and he is present in us. Father was so great and yet so humble. The renewal of the Torah of the Land of Israel was embodied and fulfilled in him."
