YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of Rebbitzen Rochel Roth A”H. She was the wife of Hagaon HaRav Yechezkel Roth Shlita (the Karlsburg Rov).
Rebbitzen Roth suffered a heart attack in her home on Monday afternoon. Boro Park Hatzolah rushed to the scene and did everything they could to save her life. Unfortunately, she was Niftar. She was 77.
The Levaya will be held on Monday night in the Karlsburg Bais Medrash – exact time to be finalized shortly (possibly at 8:00PM).
The Karlsburger Rov leads a venerated beis hora’ah in Boro Park, and is one of leading Poskim in the world today.
The Karlsburger Rav has acquired a reputation as one of the most eminent poskim of the generation. He accepts the most complex sh’eilos from all sections of the Shulchan Aruch, responding in lucid, understandable terms. His piskei halachah are studied and analyzed in batei medrash l’hora’ah throughout the world, and some of his responsa to personal status and family issues have ended months and even years of halachic debate where other dayanim were unwilling to take responsibility for such sensitive rulings.
Boruch Dayan Ha’Emmes…
