Rebbetzin Yehudis Friedler a”h


yahrtzeit-candlesIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rebbetzin Yehudis Friedler a”h. Rebbetzin Friedler was the devoted aishes chover of Rav Naftoli Friedler zt”l. Rav Friedler, in his younger years, was a member of the prestigious Gateshead Kollel under Rav Eliyahu Eliezer Dessler and learned at Rav Moshe Yehuda Schneider’s yeshiva in England.

Rav Friedler later served as rov of Khal Adas Yeshurun in Monsey and served as rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Ner Yisroel in Toronto.

Rebbetzin Friedler was a special woman, an isha chashuvah, who was wholly devoted to her illustrious husband, allowing him to spend his days immersed in Torah learning, and dedicating herself to her children without limit.

Rav and Rebbetzin Friedler were zocheh to raise a wonderful mishpacha of bnei and bnos Torah. Their children include Rabbi Binny Friedler of Eretz Yisroel; Rabbi Shmuel Friedler, rov of Cong. Eitz Chaim of Flatbush; Rabbi Yosef Friedler of Flatbush; Dr. Eli Friedler of Los Angeles; Rebbetzin Mayerfeld, wife of Rav Uri Shraga Mayerfeld, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Ner Yisroel in Toronto; Mrs. Landsberg, Mrs. Gruman, and Mrs. Jacobs.

The levaya is currently taking place at the Holocaust Memorial Chapel of Congregation Sons of Israel off of East Seventh Street in Lakewood, NJ. Following the levaya, the aron will be taken to John F. Kennedy Airport and then, after a brief levaya in the cargo area, flown via El Al to Eretz Yisroel for kevurah.

Yehi zichrah boruch.
