VIDEO & PHOTOS: Levaya Of Rebbitzen Kanievsky A”H



More than 50,000 people attended the Levaya of Rebbetzin Batsheva Chaya Kanievsky A”H, on Motzei Shabbos. The Levaya began just after 10:00PM outside the famous Kanievsky home – that hundreds of thousands have visited over the years – on Rechov Rashbam in Bnei Brak.  Many Simchos Beis Hosheiva’s planned for Motzei Shabbos were cancelled, as many Gedolim, Rebbes, & Roshei Yeshiva attended the Levaya of the wife of the Gadol Hador.

A decision was made not to inform Maran Hagon Rav Elyashiv Shlita, the father of Rebbitzen Kanievsky A”H, of the Petira of his daughter until at least after Sukkos.
