Rebbetzin Alta Chaya Hirschsprung a”h


yahrtzeit-candlesIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rebbetzin Alta Chaya Hirschsprung a”h, wife of the rav harashi of Montreal, Rav Pinchos Hirschsprung zt”l. The levaya is currently taking place in Montreal.

The Rebbetzin was 88.

The levaya began at Chesed Shel Emes on Beaumont Avenue before passing Bais Yaakov on Glendale.

Rav Hirschprung serves as the chief rabbi of Montreal from 1969 until his petirah in 1998 and served as rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Tomchei Temimim in Montreal. The Rebbetzin served as the consummate eizer kenegdo, assisting her husband and doing whatever she could to allow him to devote himself to his learning and his harbotzas haTorah and klal activities.

Yehi zichrah boruch.

  1. Her husband was also very close to the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Was by plenty of farbrengins in which the Rebbe would speak many hour of Torah! May his and her zechusim protect us!
