It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of Rebbetzin Sarah Levovitz A”H, at the age of 104.
Rebbetzin Levovitz was the wife of Rav Moshe Leib Levovitz ZT”L, and the daughter in-law of the saintly Mir Mashgiach, Harav Yeruchom Levovitz Zatzal.
Rebbetzin Levovitz was born in Brisk to her parents Rav Osher and Nechama Buchman Hy”d, and escaped the European inferno together with the Mir Yeshiva, and eventually settled in New York.
Rebbetzin Levovitz is survived by her children, Rav Yeruchom, Rav Nachman, Rosh Yeshiva in Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim, Rav Chaim Ozer, and Rebebtzin Rivka Rasha Goodman, wife of Rav Nissin Goodman , Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Tiferes Elimelech, and by scores of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren who follow in her footsteps.
The Levaya will take place today, Wednesday, February 15, at 5:30 pm in the Shomrei Hachomos chapel , 4218 Fort Hamilton Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY 11219. The Nifteres will then be flown to Eretz Yisroel, where she will be laid to rest on Har Hazeisim near her dear husband, who was niftar in 1982.
Yehi Zichrah Baruch.
