Mother Of 12 Niftar In Bnei Brak R”L


A mother of 12 was R”L niftar in Bnei Brak at the age of 52.

Mrs. Rochel Waldman A”H, the wife of Rav Aharon Waldman, a Rosh Yeshivah in Yeshivas Divrei Chaim (Vizman) in Bnei Brak, was known as a major baalas tzedaka and committed to a life of Torah and chessed. She was niftar days after a vort for a son.

She was born to Rav Moshe Bunim Krauss, a former Ram in Yeshivas Lucerne, and her mother was a daughter of Rav Wolf Rosengarten ZT”L of Switzerland, who was very close to Gedolei Yisrael and among the major baalei chessed of her generation.

The nifteres merited marrying off six of their children, and just last week, celebrated the vort of her seventh child, with the kallah being a grandchild of HaGaon HaRav Gershon Edelstein Shlita and a daughter of HaGaon Rav Yisrael Edelstein.

It is reported she suddenly felt ill, was treated medically and was niftar a short time later. The levaya began on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at 1:30PM from the family home on Devorah HaNevia Street in Bnei Brak to the Ponevezh Cemetery.
