Kol Haolam reports: Known to three generations of students as “Morah Dinah,” Mrs. Dinah Rosengarten had a front row seat to the building of the Torah world in America as she had a pivotal in shaping it into what it is today. Morah Dinah passed away early yesterday morning in Boro Park at the age of 87.
She served for more than half century as a first-grade teacher at Bais Yaakov of Boro Park, educating thousands of girls and serving as the cast for all other teachers to follow. Many of the ditties taught in schools today about middos, bal tashchis, cleanliness, Pesach and Alef Bais were actually composed by her.
Married to Reb Itche Rosengarten for nearly 70 years, she hailed from the Goldstein family. Her brother, Daniel Goldstein z”l was the first mayor of New Square.
