Tehillim is needed for Rebbetzin Gittel Kaplan, the wife of Hagaon HaRav Nissan Kaplan, the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Daas Aharon and former longtime Magid Shiur in the Mir Yerushalayim.
Unfortunately, Rebbitzen Kaplan has been battling an illness for some time, and her condition turned critical on Motzei Shabbos and is in need of Rachmei Shomayim.
She is the daughter of Hagaon HaRav Avrohom Gurwicz, a Rosh Yeshiva in Gateshead.
A special minyan was held at the home of Rosh Hayeshiva Reb Avrohom Gurwicz on Sunday afternoon, where he will made a shinui Hashem of his daughter Rebetzin Kaplan’s name. At the advice of Hagaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky, she will be called “Gittel yente bas Sara”. Rav Chaim said that the publicity of her acceptance of this new name will be a kiddush Hashem and generate zchusim for her speedy recovery.
Her name for Tehillim is Gittel Yente bas Sarah.
