YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of Rebbitzen Ruchama Shain A”H, she was 98-years-old.
Rebbitzen Shain was the author of a world famous book “All For The Boss”, among other books that she authored as well. She was the daughter of Rav Yaakov Yosef Herman ZATZAL, a Torah pioneer in America.
As a daughter of Rav Yaakov Yosef Herman – known as “All for the Boss” for the book written about him – Rebbetzin Shain, from a young age, was imbued with strong hashkafos and chashivus for Torah and lomdei Torah. She grew up in a home that was literally open to all Yidden who needed a warm meal, a comfortable bed, or a listening ear. These ideals stayed with her for her entire life, as she continued the legacy of her unforgettable father by continuing in his path of Torah and gemillus chassodim.
Rebbitzen Shain was living with her son, the Rosh Yeshiva in Adelphia for the past 12 years, and for the past year in an assisted living center in Lakewood. prior to that she lived two floors below her brother-in-law, Hagon HaRav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg ZATZAL, in Mattersdorf, Jerusalem. (Her sister was Rebbetzin Basha (Bessie) Scheinberg A”H).
The Levaya will be held on Sunday in Lakewood at Tiferes Bais Taakov, 613 Oak Street, at 11:00 am. The Kevura will be in Eretz Yisroel.
