Yitzchak Rabinowitz, 55, OBM

Yitzchak Rabinowitz, a resident of both Columbus, Ohio and Jerusalem and supporter of Columbus Chabad, passed away suddenly after suffering a heart attack.

Yitzchak Yirmiyahu Rabinowitz, a father and grandfather who had homes in Jerusalem and Columbus, Ohio, passed away on Friday, 22 Kislev, 5779.

He was 55 and passed away suddenly after a heart attack while in Ohio on Friday.

Yitzchak was in the real estate business, based out of Columbus, Ohio, commuting regularly from his home in Jerusalem.

Yitzchak was active in Chabad of Columbus, Ohio, serving as the President of the Schottenstein Chabad House at Ohio State University and working hand in hand with the Shluchim in their activities.

He was not only a supporter of Chabad causes, but a dear friend to the Shluchim at Ohio State University in Columbus, Rabbi Levi Andrusier and Rabbi Zalman Deitsch, both Shluchim at OSU, told COLlive.

"Yitzchak poured his heart and soul into helping the Shluchim at the Schottenstein Chabad House at Ohio State University," Rabbi Andrusier told COLlive. "He spent hundreds of hours encouraging us and challenging us to do bigger and greater Peulos."

He is survived by his wife, Leah (nee Hartman) and children Mrs. Bella Weiss, Monsey, NY, Rabbi Mendy Rabinowitz, Rishon Letziyon, Israel, Chana, Arik, Zev and Miri.

He is also survived by his mother, Shoshana Rabinowitz and siblings Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, Lakewood, NJ, Rabbi Dubi Rabinowitz, Crown Heights and Yossi Rabinowitz, Kfar Chabad.

He was predeceased by his father, Rabbi Moshe Lipa Rabinowitz OBM, who passed away in 2014.

The levaya will take place tomorrow, Sunday in Jerusalem.

Baruch Dayan Ha'emes.

Oy Vey!!!
This is truly shocking!! I had the privilege of meeting him multiple times and engaging in conversation with him in the course of the last 3 years. He was such a pleasant person. A great person. What a tragic loss. He will undoubtedly Daven for us all in Gan Eden. May his family be comforted knowing this great man left a legacy of generosity and kindness for us all to learn and emulate.
