The news spread quickly in the Spinka chassidus in Bnei Brak on motzei shabbos (USA time) after learning of the petira of the Alter Spinka Rebitzen A”H at the age of 94, the wife of Admor Rav Yaakov Yosef of Spinka ZT”L. During recent years, the rebitzen has been living with her son, the Spinka Rebbe Shlita in Boro Park.
The levaya will begin at the Spinka Beis Medrash in Boro Park at about noon and then the aron will be flown to Eretz HaKodesh for kvura, accompanied by the rebbe from Boro Park and his family.
In Eretz Yisrael the levaya will begin in bnei Brak. One of the tragedies of the rebitzen’s life was the death of a son who was killed in a vehicular crash as he returned from the levaya of the Baba Sali ZY”A.
