Levaya for Rebitzen Elisheva Kahanaman AH

candle914Thousands of talmidim and alumni from Ponevezh Yeshiva took part in the Monday 8 Iyar levaya for Rebitzen Elisheva Kahanaman. The nifteres was the wife of Rabbi Eliezer Kahanaman Shlita. She suffered from a difficult illness over the past two decades.

Rav Kahanaman in his hesped mentioned the ongoing machlokes for control over the yeshiva, adding his rebitzen had good midos and ran from any kovod during her entire life. He added she once asked him to leave it all and walk away due to the machlokes in the yeshiva.

Rav Kahanaman, president of the yeshiva, explained why he remains; “My grandfather, the Ponevezh Rav ZT”L, compelled me to remain and said to me he wishes to see Ponevezh continue. Hence I continue as instructed”.

  1. BDE what a tragic loss

    On the same day as a young mother of 3 children niftar at 32. This is just horrific and getting worse daily. Look at the ages and the ways they were niftar. Can we call these natural and not young ages?

    Im in need of serious words of comfort. Can anyone give me an honest opinion or answer why such tragedies would just be struck out of nowhere and leave baby orphans? Other than a wake-up call for Teshuva.

    Please comfort me with your words.

    May their souls rest in peace

  2. Rabbi Kahaneman himself mentioned (one of) the reasons:
    His WIFE had the good midos to run away from kavod!
