Rebbetzin Shifra Nebenzahl a”h


It is with great sadness that reports the passing of Rebbetzin Shifra Nebenzahl a”h, the wife of Rav Avigdor Yechezkel Halevi Nebenzahl, rov of the Old City of Yerushalayim.

Rebbetzin Nebenzahl was a daughter of Rav Chaim Zev Finkel zt”l, mashgiach of Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim and rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Heichal Hatalmud. She was a sister of Rav Aryeh Finkel, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Mir-Brachfeld.

The Rebbetzin passed away at Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim on Friday night.

The Rebbetzin was 79 years old.

She was born in Yerushalayim on 20 Iyar תרצ”ז to her illustrious parents, Rav Chaim Zev and Rebbetzin Leah, a step-daughter of Rav Yosef Chaim Sonnenfeld zt”l.

Throughout her life, the Rebbetzin was a pillar of support to her husband, Rav Avigdor, allowing him to be marbitz Torah and spread the word of Hashem.

The Rebbetzin leaved behind her husband and five sons, and dozens of descendants who follow in her path.

The levaya was held on Motzoei Shabbos at the Sanhedria Bais Hachaim in Yerushalayim.

Yehi zichroh boruch.
