Kristal's awesome life began in what is modern-day Poland on 15 September 1903 and saw him survive the Auschwitz concentration camp.
Yisrael Kristal, 113, was certified past year by Guinness World Records as the oldest man alive.
Last year, when he turned 113, about 100 family members celebrated his bar mitzvah, a century after he missed it due to the upheavals of World War I. Usually in Jewish faith, when Jewish boys become 13 years old, they become accountable for their actions and become a bar mitzvah.
Israeli media are reporting that the world's oldest man, who lived through both world wars and survived the Holocaust, has died a month short of his 114th birthday.
Haaretz reported that Kristal died Friday.
Kristal, who resided in the northern Israeli city of Haifa, was born in on September 15, 1903, in the Polish village of Zarnow.

But Hong Kong continued a month-long advance as traders prepared for more earnings from heavyweights including China Mobile. Tyson Foods rose 4.94 percent after the No.1 USA meat processor reported better-than-expected quarterly profit and sales.
According to the news site Ynet, Mr. Kristal leaves two children, nine grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren.
Kristal moved to a ghetto with his wife and two children, who died there.
Kristal's daughter, Shula Kopershtouk, told CBC News at the time: "My father told my son not to take his bar mitzvah for granted, saying that not everyone was lucky enough to have one".
"I don't know the secret for long life", Kristal once said, according to Guinness.
Kristal's death on Friday came a year after he was recognised by Guinness World Records as the world's oldest living man. "All that is left for us to do is to keep on working as hard as we can and rebuild what is lost".
And the record holder for "longest living human" is Jeanne Calment, a French woman who died at age 122 and 164 days.
