It is with great sadness that reports the passing of Rabbi Yitzchok Wenger z”l.

Rabbi Wenger z”l was a longtime resident of Lakewood, NJ, and served as an administrator at the Lakewood Cheder for many years.

Rabbi Wenger maintained a close relationship with Bais Medrash Govoah and its roshei yeshiva, with a particularly close kesher to the late noted posek, Rav Gavriel Finkel, with whom he is pictured in a photo below.

Rabbi Wenger was a talmid chochom and oheiv Torah who demonstrated his ahavas haTorahthrough his days spent immersed in limud haTorah. His love for rabbonim and bnei Torah was evident in his deference for them and his respect for others.

He and his wife, Mrs. Shulamis Wenger, merited raising an outstanding family of bnei and bnos Torah. Reb Yitzchok resided in Bais Medrash Govoah’s Yeshiva Apartments at Forest Avenue and Eighth Street, a couple of blocks from the famed yeshiva.

He is survived by his wife; his sons, Rabbi Boruch Mordechai Wenger, Rabbi Yaakov Wenger, and Rabbi Dov Wenger, and four daughters; and many grandchildren.

Levayah details have not been finalized.
