The Skver Rebbetzin A”H

The levaya took place on Sunday night at 8 PM in New Square. Thousands of chasidim as well as a gallery of prominent rebbes came to pay tribute to the Skver Rebbe Shlita and his illustrious Eshes Chaver A’H.

The Rebbetzin was the oldest daughter of the late Vizhnitzer Rebbe Zt”l of Bnei Brak,  the Yeshuos Moshe. Her siblings – all of them leaders of major chasidic communities– visited her over the past two weeks as her physical condition declined.

Her brothers are the Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak (Reb Yisroel) and the Vizhnitzer Mercaz Rebbe (Reb Mendel); her sisters are the Belzer Rebbetzin, the Satmar (Kiryas Joel) Rebbetzin, and the wife of HaRav Menachem Ernster, the rosh yeshiva of the Vizhnitz Yeshiva in Bnei Brak.

The Rebbetzin was a devoted mother to her four sons and three daughters, one of whom, the Zviller Rebbetzin, a”h, predeceased her.

The Rebbetzin stood by her husband and supported him in all aspects of his leadership. She was very knowledgeable, and at times spoke publicly to the women of Skver, and would also speak when she accompanied the Rebbe on various trips.

In New Square, she was a central figure who was very involved with the residents, connecting and caring for all the families in the town, never holding herself aloof. She was known as an extraordinary hostess for the hundreds of guests who visited Skver on a consistent basis.

The Rebbetzin is survived by the Rebbe shlit”a, her grieving children and grandchildren, and thousands of chasidim who feel orphaned by her passing.

The Rebitzen would not want her picture posted on any website or publication. Let’s honor her by respecting her wishes.

BDE. As great as she was, you still won’t see a photo of her in the Hamodia or Yated Neeman.
