  1. She was such a special person. So intellegent and really helped alot of people with her intellegence. When I was expecting she was the first one I called to help me decide on what Dr. I should use.

  2. Boruch Dayan Emes. It should be noted that Rebetzin Weisenfeld is a granddaughter of the Chofetz Chayim ZTL and the wife of Horav Hagaon R’ Gershon Avrohom Weisenfeld ZTL a noted Talmid Chochom from Yeshiva Bais Hatalmud as well as the mother & mother-in-law of many noted Talmiday Chachomim. May she be a Mailitz Yosher for her Mishpacha & all of Klal Yisroel.

  4. I am so saddned by this tragic news…
    Rebbetzin Wiesenfeld was a true tzaddeikes, who raised a family of outstanding Bnei Torah and Imachos b’Yisroel. I know one of her daughters very well and she is a true testament to her mother’s amazing influence. Rebbetzin Wiesenfeld’s home was ALWAYS open to those in need -of a kind word, a Shabbos meal, or help of any kind. This is a tremendous loss not only to the family but to all of Klal Yisroel. May she be a melitz yoshar for all of us.
    Please post shiva details if available. Thank you.

  5. oy.. the famous tzaddeikes of bensonhurst..she went thru many tzorres in her life and still made such an incredible impact on klal yisroel. Her husband r’gershon was one of the gedolia hador who was nifter at a young age. oy..what a loss for all of us.

  6. Baruch Dayan Emes. I am one of the many people she helped. I am sorry I never told her how many people I was able to help based on the advice she gave me, and the direction she led me in when I did my own research. My deepest sympathies to the family, and HaMakom yenachem eschem b’soch she’ar aveilei Tziyon v’Yrushalayim.

    TAKE A LOOK AT THE CHASUVA KIDS AND SON-IN-LAW’S AND GRANDCHILDREN,THAT SHE HAS,THEY ARE FAMOUS MARBITZEI TORAH VEYIRAH IN AMERICA AND ERETZ YISRAEL.THAT REALLY SAYS ALOT ABOUT HER.

  10. She also did an enormous amount of chesed, organizing packages of food for needy families. I had known her for the past 28 years and I never saw her NOT in an upbeat mood. She always had a smile and never sat still..always moving around doing something for someone else. She was truly a special person. She will be sorely missed by many.

  11. Hogoenim Rav Hillel & Rav Yaakov Yehoshua Zaks Shlit”a are sitting shiva in Eretz Yisroel In Kiryat Sefer, Kiryat Yeshiva Knesses Hagdolah,Rechov Chafetz Chaim.
