candle-small5[Levaya hookup info below.] It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rebbetzin Esther Alster a”h, wife of Rav Shimon Alster. Rav Alster is the rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Gedolah of Cliffwood, NJ, and rov of Bais Medrash Torah U’tefillah on Bedford Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Rav Alster served for over three decades as a maggid shiur at the Mesivta of Long Beach.

The Rebbetzin was an isha chashuvah who displayed tremendous gevurah and emunah throughout her life, and especially during the past few years when she battled illness. She was also a veteran mechaneches, having served as principal at Bnos Yaakov Pupa for many years. She was the consummate eizer kenegdo, standing at her husband’s side and allowing him to engage in his numerous endeavors of harbotzas haTorah for decades.

The levaya will be held at noon at Bais Medrash Torah U’tefillah, located on Bedford Avenue, off of Avenue L, in Flatbush. Kevurah will follow at the bais hakevaros in Deans, NJ, located at 104 Deans Rhode Hall Road, Monmouth Jct., Deans, NJ.

The Rebbetzin is survived by her illustrious husband and their children and grandchildren, all bnei and bnos Torah following in their ways.

The family will be sitting shivah at the home of Rav Alster, 2418 Avenue K in Flatbush.

Yehi zichro boruch.

Update: The levaya will be broadcast live on Kol Haloshon. Call 718.906.6400.
