  1. perhaps matzav can start a program in her memory

    ex. sign up to turn your cell phones off while davening. in her zchus.

    ex. stay till the last amen in shul in her zchus.

    ex. learn a few halachos of shmiras halashon with your spouse everyday. etc…

    & see how many people sign up to it in the zchus of a tzdaikes like her

    may we all learn from her

  2. re anogggdf: If you read the book you’ll see numerous pictures also. I haven’t heard it spelled out this way but I’m assuming that there’s a difference between a subtle picture that you only see if you open something, as in the pictures in the book, and pictures blaringly, unavoidably noticeable, like a cover of the book picture, or had this been featured in the “today’s featured video” spot of the homepage.

    Following this logic there might be room to say that her picture shouldn’t be on the homepage but only available once you open the article, but I’m still not bothered by this picture.

  3. go and read her biography “The Rebbezin”.
    HaRav Kanievsky shlita gave his explicit permission to publish her picture because it serves as a good example for many women. So please stop writing nonsense!
