Mrs. Ruth Lang a”h


candle-small3[Levaya hookup and shivah info below.] It with great sadness that we report the passing of Mrs. Ruth (Rochel Rus) Lang a”h of Flatbush, Brooklyn. Mrs. Lang, nee Schafheimer, was a woman of sterling character and a caring heart, the matriarch of a wonderful family of bnei and bnos Torah.

  1. Mrs Lang, Rochel Rus Bas Hachover Avrohom was in the hospital since January 11th and had two valve replacements but then there were other complications and she hoped on coming home soon thereafter but the ribono shel olom had other plans and we wish that she is a meilitz yosher for her family and extended family and friends.

  2. I remember her so well, BDH, so sad, amazing children. grandchidren… My heart goes out to the family. She was a Holocust Survivor

  3. Mrs. Lang A”H was a uniquely exceptional person who has, through-out her entire life, performed incredible hidden chasadim for individuals all b’tzina – never seeking accolades. This is truly a sad day and a great loss for not only the mishpacha, but the Torah community.

    May the Ribono Shel Olam bring comfort to her special devoted husband and her beautiful bnai-torah children. She is certainly looking down from Shomayim with true pride and nachas.

  4. Our condolences on your sudden loss. Ruth’s regular Sunday night phone call to her Aunt Evelyn was so looked forward to and hearing about Ruth’s many grandchildren was always a topic of conversation on Monday. As a link to many loved ones’ past is gone the many wonderful memories Ruth brought to so many people will be cherished forever.

  5. She was not a holocust survivor she came to the U.S. as a young child. Her husband Reb Shlomo ybl, is a survivor. Together they built a beautiful home and she is one to emulate.
