Mrs. Toby Diskind a”h


candle-small6It is with great sadness that we report that passing of Mrs. Toby Diskind a”h of Flatbush. Mrs. Diskind was the wife of Rav Yehudah Elchonon Diskind zt”l, a longtime mechanech who served as a rebbi at the Yeshiva of Eastern Parkway and Mirrer Yeshiva Ketana.

Mrs. Diskind was a devoted wife and dedicated mother and grandmother, who always sought to do for and help others.

Mrs. Diskind was a daughter of Rav Yaakov Moshe and Rebbetzin Esther Gittel Zimmerman. Rebbetzin Esther Gittel was a niece of the Kamenitzer rosh yeshiva, Rav Boruch Ber Leibowitz zt”l.

Mrs. Diskind, whose husband was niftar two years ago, is survived by children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who are following in the path of ahavas haTorah, kiddush Hashem and ahavas Yisroel that she and her husband forged.

Her children include Rebbetzin Bryna Bender, wife of Rav Yaakov Bender, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Darchei Torah in Far Rockaway; Rav Dovid Diskind, rosh yeshiva of a Yeshiva Gedolah in Lakewood, NJ; and Rav Pesach Diskind of Canada.

Yehi zichrah boruch.

  1. TRAGIC that klal yisroel as a nation can stoop so low by watching these tragic moments happen one after the next & continue daily R”L without asking ourselves why these are happening? & DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT to stop it from continuing R”L

    will we ever face reality? will these tragedies ever come to an end? WHEN KLAL YISROEL AS ONE NATION does something about it & we all show hashem that we care & desire to return to hashem with teshuva THEN WE WILL ALL BE ABLE TO SAY GOODBYE TO THESE DAILY TRAGIC EVENTS R”L


  2. The levaya was last night in Darchei Torah, in Far Rockaway. There will also be a levaya in Israel Thursday evening at 6:30 at Kehilas Yerushalayim chapel, which is located at the Har Hamenuchos parking lot.

  3. Very Very sad, Her son in law R’ Yakov Bender said at the livaya that in all the years he has been married he never saw the niftar do an avayra!!!!!
    We lost a very special person!!!!

  4. My grandparents are now together how they always were in perfect harmony during their lifetime. May they both be Melitzay Yosher for all of Klal Yisrael.

    The levaya was in Far Rockaway last night and will be starting soon in E”Y.

    May we be zocheh to Mashiach Tzidkainu today and be overflowing with aboslute joy instead of Aveilus.

  5. Is Rebbetzin Bender sitting shiva in Eretz Yiroel at all or returning immed after levaya? If she is receiving visitors in E”Y, where?
