  1. Just to add a correction: her family name spelled in English is Dunner not Diner and her maiden name was Wreshner, a niece of Harav Matisyahu Salomon. Very, very sad. BDE

  2. Just for the record, although in English the family name is Dunner, however, in Hebrew the family is referred to as Diner and is spelled that way by the family. I assume Dunner was a British distortion of the real name, Diner. Thus, YWN technically isn’t wrong.
