ברוך דיין האמת
בצער רב אנו מודיעים על פטירתו של
הרב הגאון ר’ שאול זכריש זצ”ל
רב בדעטראיט וחבר נשיאות ועד הרבנים
With deep sadness, the Vaad HaRabbonim mourns the passing today of Rabbi Shaiall Zachariash Zt”l, Rav of Cong. Shomrei Emunah of Southfield, Michigan for more than 50 years. Rabbi Zachariash served on the presidium of the Vaad Harabonim for many years, and after the passing of Rabbi Leizer Levin and Rabbi Chatzkel Grubner Zt”l, served as its Yoshev Rosh.
Rav Zachariash was a close Talmid of R’ Yaakov Kamenetzky and R’ Ruderman Zt”l and received semicha from R’ Ruderman. Before moving to Detroit he served as Rav in Vineland, NJ, Hunter, NY, and Toledo OH. In Detroit he also served as a Rebbi in Yeshiva Bais Yehuda, later taking on the role of principal. He was an active Mohel, and was able to do Safrus and Shechita as well.
His selfless dedication to the Klall was legendary. He was beloved to his congregants and helped many people behind the scenes. Nothing was beneath his dignity to do for Hashem and for his fellow man. Although his accomplishments were many, he constantly avoided Kavod. Fulfilling Hashem’s Ratzon was the only thing that mattered at all times and that was the way he led his life. His persona was one of a true Eved Hashem.
Together with his late wife, Rebbetzin Bracha Zachariash A”h, he was zoche to build a beautiful home and distinguished family. His children are Rabbi Avrohom and Rivka Schwartz of Flatbush, NY, Rabbi Eli Meyer and Orah Jundef of Southfield, MI, Rabbi Eli and Avigail Teichman of Lakewood, NJ and Rabbi Avrohom Boruch and Chana Zachariash of Ramat Shlomo, Yerushalayim. The Zachariashs were zoche to many grandchildren and great grandchildren, kein yirbu.
May the family be comforted along with all mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.
יהי זכרו ברוך
