We regret to inform you of the Petirah of Harav Sheftel Neuberger, Sheftel Meir ben Naftali Halevi zt”l.
Rav Sheftel Meir Halevi Neuberger zt”l, was the beloved menahel of Yeshivas Ner Yisroel in Baltimore. Rav Sheftel had battled illness for the last year. Rav Neuberger was a son of Rav Naftali Neuberger zt”l, famed president of Ner Yisroel. He was named for his zaide, Rav Sheftel Kramer zt”l. Rav Sheftel took over for his father as president of Ner Yisroel upon Rav Naftali’s passing in 2005. Rav Sheftel was supremely devoted to the yeshiva, guiding it and sacrificing to ensure its vitality and growth. He was also renowned as an outstanding baal tefillah, whose tefillos inspired thousands of the years. He was a baal tefillah during the Yomim Noraim at Ner Yisroel, and his nusach has been used and replicated by baalei tefillah the world over. Rav Sheftel is survived by his rebbetzin, Mrs. Judy Neuberger, and their family: Rabbi Yosef Neuberger, Rabbi Boruch Neuberger, Mrs. Devorah Krakauer, Mrs. Laya Basch, Rabbi Chaim Shimon Neuberger, Mrs. Feige Schwebel, and Rabbi Shlomo Dovid Neuberger. He is also survived by his siblings, Rav Shraga Neuberger, Reb Yaakov Neuberger, Reb Yitzchok (Isaac) Neuberger, and Rav Ezra Neuberger.
