candleIt is with great sadness that we report the passing this morning of Rebbetzin Chana Shteinman a”h, daughter of Rav Chaim Kanievsky and daughter-in-law of Rav Aharon Leib Shteinman, following a long illness.

Rebbetzin Shteinman, the wife of Rav Shraga Shteinman, was 61. She passed away at Mayanei Hayeshuah Medical Center in Bnei Brak.

Her husband, Rav Shraga, is rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Kehillos Yaakov.

All her life, the Rebbetzin served as her husband’s right hand, supporting him in his harbotzas haTorah. She faithfully served her illustrious parents and inspired many women and girls, offering chizuk to one and all.
