[UPDATED 10:00PM ET]
Hagaon HaRav Reuven Feinstein and his Rebbitzen were injured in a car accident on Tuesday.
The Rebbitzen sustained internal bleeding and underwent surgery. Bechasdei Hashem, the procedure appears successful, and she remains hospitalized in Staten Island. The Rosh Yeshiva was badly bruised but x-rays came back negative. The Rosh Yeshiva was discharged from the hospital late Tuesday night.
Rav Reuven is the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva of Staten Island, and the youngest son of Hagaon HaRav Moshe Feinstein ZATZAL. His older brother is Hagaon HaRav David Feinstein Shlita, the Rosh Yeshiva of Mesivta Tiferes Yerushalayim.
Their names for Tehillim are Shalom Reuven ben Shima and Chava Sarah bas Ita Devorah.

I think Rav Reuven Feinstein Shlita’s mother’s name was Sima not Shima.
May Hashem grant Rav Shalom Reuven ben Sima and Chava Sara bas Ita Devorah a speedy and a complete refuah shleima besoch shear cholei iisrael.
They should have a refuah sheleimah b’karov
Is the Rosh Hayehiva’s mother’s name
Shima or Sima?
Can someone close to the Feinstein family please confirm Rav Reuven’s mother’s name (Reb Moshe’s rebbetzin)? I have seen both Shima and Sima.
It’s time WE all improve our Tznius as a Tremendous Zechus for a Refuah Shlemah.
My family is very close with the Feinstein mishpacha (B”H) and the name is Shima
Just say Sima like a litvak and it’s pronounced Shima!
Mirel, states the rebbitzin’s name reversed!! The rebbitzen is Ita Devorah bas Chava Sarah l’refuah Shlaima
The Rosh Yeshiva’s mothers’ name was pronounced Shima, yet spelled Sima due to the accent that she had when she told the American passport controller her name. I am marrieed to her great grand daughter who does the same.
Definitely Shima. Many people thinks it’s Sima because it sounds more familiar and Shima looks and sounds strange to our ears, but Rebbetzin Feinstein a”h’s name was Shima.
As Rav Reuven himself would tell you if u asked him-“God knows who your talking about!”
A day later any update?
