    It mamash brings up the pain of her Hailiger husband’s petirah as well.
    She is the mother of our kehilla and nebech suffered for so many years.
    Her great grandson got married last night in Bes Medresh and we now turn over those same benches on which we danced.
    Oy Luni.
    Yehai Zichruh Burich.

  2. My heart aches. This is a monumental loss. To the family: We in the Bobover kehila share in your pain.
    Even though the Rebitzen was was sick for a while, she thwarted the malach hamaves time and again.
    Baruch Dayan Haemes.
    I am picturing R’ Shlomo with his calm smile, coming out to greet his Rebbitzen in the Olem Haemes.
    May she be a melitha yeshara.

  3. I am not trying to be smart, but can someone answer this..

    Being that the livaya was on 48th Street, did the Rebbe from 45th and his chassidim get to go to the livaya as well?

  4. Maybe it’s time now for Bobov “Peace”, so that the Rebitzen could bring the good news of ‘Peace’ to her husband the Great Reb Shlomo ZT”L onto next world.

    “Just a thought from someone outside of the Bobover community, who has been watching painfully the unnecessary Bobov machlokes”
