Rabbi Michoel Nimni, 65, OBM

Rabbi Michoel Chaim Klifa Nimni, a Rav and Mekubal who led a Kollel and Beis Medrash in Crown Heights and mentor to many, passed away.

Rabbi Michoel Chaim Klifa Nimni, a Rav and Mekubal who led a Kollel and Beis Medrash in Crown Heights, passed away on Shabbos, 21 Tammuz, 5777.

He was 65.

Harav Nimni was a close student, and learned 12 years as a Chavrusa, with the world renowned Mekubal, Rabbi Yitzchok Kaduri zatzal.

He was a regular Ben Bayis by the illustrious Baba Sali, Rabbi Yisrael Abuchatzeira, who cherished him very much and would only allow Rav Nimni to massage him with various oils.

His teacher and mentor was the Rishon Letzion Rav Mordechai Eliyahu zatzal who gave him the name "Malach Michoel," and who encouraged him to open a Bet Midrash and Kollel which he opened in Crown Heights with the Bracha of the Rebbe.

Many yungerleit who learned in his Kolel are now Shluchim of the Rebbe.

The Rosh Yeshiva of Kisei Rachamim and spiritual leader of Yachad, Rav Meir Mazuz Shlita would stay at the home of Rav Nimni on all his visits to New York.

His home was open to all for advice, assistance, a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on. Hundreds of local families sought his advice and benefited from his activities. In addition, many people from all over New York and America would seek his guidance and assistance.

He left 17 children, 10 of whom are still unmarried.

He is survived by his wife, Rabbanit Tziviah, and children Rachamim, Rabbi Yaakov, Moshe, Yosef Chaim, Meir Shalom, Shimon Refael, Baruch Yisrael, Avraham, Dovid Shem Tov, Yehuda, Shlomit Orah, Sara Simcha, Geulah Rina, Leah Rivka, Esther Chana, Mazal Tov and Penina.

A fund has been set up to assist the family during this difficult time, click here to help now.

The Levaya will take place tomorrow, Sunday, at Shomrei Hadas in Boro Park at 12:30 pm and passing by 770 at 2:30 pm, on the way to burial in Israel.

The levaya procession in Israel will start from Yeshiva Kisei Rachamim on its way to burial in Yerushalayim.

The family is sitting Shiva at 560 Empire Boulevard, upstairs.

Baruch Dayan Emes,
I have had the pleasure of meeting a few of his family members over the years. They are very unpretentious and unassuming. You might never have taken note of them, unless your paths were meant to cross and you made a connection of some kind, Moshiach Now Please!!
