It is with terrible grief and sadness that we wish to inform you of the untimely petirah, due to Coronavirus, of Rabbi Yehuda Refson ז”ל ,
the beloved younger brother of Rabbi Dovid Refson נ”י.

Rabbi Yehuda Refson was the אב בין דין  of Leeds, England who was a great צדיק, תלמיד חכם, בעל חסד  and father of children who emulate his devotion to the Jewish people.

Rabbi Dovid Refson is sitting shiva as of today, Monday, in his home.

Because of the Ministry of Health directives which limits people gathering together, it is preferable to call Rabbi Refson rather than making a shiva visit.

Rabbi Refson can be reached via the following phone numbers:

02-6415517 or 02-643-5256 or 053-228-6536 or via email –

 Please refrain from calling between 13:00-16:00 and after 22:00.

Rabbi Yehuda Refson will surely be a good   מליץ יושר for his family as well as כלל ישראל.

יהי זכרו ברוך.
