Rabbi Elisha Vishlitski, one of the noted spiritual leaders of the religious-Zionist community, died on Wednesday at age 65.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that "contributed massively to the creation of the garin torani concept [pre-army service yeshiva] and these schools aid Israeli society across the land in great ways. He loved the People of Israel."
Education Minister Naftali Bennett noted that Vishlitski "loved every Jew and was among those of whom it is said that those who study the words of the wise increase the peace in the world."
Vishlitski was noted as a great speaker on the matter of tikun hamidot
[the perfection of merit], and according to his religious understanding a person may not consider himself religious until he attained perfect conduct towards his fellow men.
