Rabbi Dr. Elyakim Yehuda Goldberg, MD

אליקים יהודה ב"ר יעקב

Kelemer Iluy

Date of Death: Fri. February 28, 1941 - Adar 1 5701
Rosh Chodesh


Rabbi Yehuda Goldberg, also known as Leo Gustav Goldberg M.D.  was a brilliant fusion of Torah and Gedulah. Born in Lithuania, he was referred to by many as  “the genius of Kelm.” As a young man, Rav Yitzchok Elchonon Spector hired him to learn with his son, Rav Tzvi Hirsh. He was also a close friend of Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Joseph,  who would later become the Chief Rabbi of New York City.
At the request of Nathaniel Mayer Rothschild (Baron de Rothschild), he emigrated to the Holy Land. However, his strict Torah standards but him at odds with unscrupulous members of the Zichron Yaakov community, forcing him to emigrate to America.  Once on these shores, he settled in Crown Heights section of Brooklyn where he was installed as Rav of Congregation Tomchei Torah on Eastern Parkway.
As a prestigious medical doctor, he used his profession to aid his fellow Jews in any way possible.
