R. Shimon Eider z”l

Hirhurim reports that R. Shimon Eider z”l has passed away. R. Eider was the author of many important books on practical halakhah, all of which I always recommended to people with the caveat that they always read the notes in Hebrew. Just recently Rabbi Eider traveled to the town where my brother is a rabbi in MA in order to give them guidelines for constructing an eruv. יהי זכרו ברוך.

    He was the one to first visit regarding and set up the eiruv in the community I grew up in (Bayside, Queens, NY). I remember when the books first started appearing in large pamphlet forms. My aunt and uncle gave the Shabbos ones to my brother for a BM gift (that’s Bar Mitzvah). He was ahead of his time in presenting things so thoroughly for an English speaking audience. Yes -Yehi Zichro Baruch.

    Rav Shimon Eider was a trailblazer. I attended teh Shiurim he delivered @ Ahi Ezer Syn,. in Flatbush on Hilchot niddah.
    His books on Hoilchot Pesach Sefirah Three Weeks were phenominal. But was most important were the footnotes. His Bekiut was tremendous
    I called him a number of times with Sheilot.
    Ihi Zichro Baruch
