It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rebbetzin Alte Perel Hager a”h. Rebbetzin Hager was the wife of Rav Moshe Hager zt”l, rosh yeshiva of the Seret-Vizhnitz Yeshiva and author of the Birchas Moshe. She was 87.
The Rebbetzin was a daughter of Rav Menachem Dovid Horowitz zt”l of Dzikov. She was a granddaughter of Rav Yisroel Hager zt”l, the Ahavas Yisroel of Vizhnitz.
The Rebbetzin was known as a righteous woman who stood at her husband’s side and was available to one and all.
The Rebbetzin is survived by generations of descendants, including her children, the Shatz-Vizhnitz Rebbe and Rav Yisroel Eliezer Hager, rov of Seret-Viznitz in Yerushalayim.
The levaya will be held from Ramat Vizhnitz in Haifa and then in Bnei Brak from the Seret-Vizhnitz Bais Medrash on Rechov Chazon Ish, followed by kevurah at the Shomrei Shabbos Zichron Meir Bais Hachaim in Bnei Brak.
Yehi zichrah boruch.
