Senior Rebbetzins Address Asifas Chizuk for Women in Bnei Brak


women-asifas-chizuk[Photos below.] Tuesday evening, the city of Bnei Brak hosted an asifas chizuk for thousands of women. The event, titled “Vesein Chelkeinu Besorasecha,” featured divrei chizuk from the senior Vizhnitzer Rebbetzin, the wife of the late Vizhnitzer Rebbe zt”l, the Yeshuas Moshe. Divrei bracha were also shared by the Gerrer Rebbetzin, wife of the Gerrer Rebbe; the Belzer Rebbetzin, wife of the Belzer Rebbe and daughter of the Vizhnitzer Rebbe; and Rebbetzin Ben-Shimon.

The event also featured a musical performance by a group of girls.

Among the esteemed rebbetzins present in the audience were Rebbetzin Lefkowitz, wife of Rav Michel Yehuda Lefkowitz zt”l; Rebbetzin Leah Koledetzky, daughter of Rav Chaim Kanievsky; and Rebbetzin Karelitz, wife of Rav Nissim Karelitz.

Many of the attendees were wives of men who recently finished Shas with the twelfth cycle of Daf Yomi. The speakers stressed the importance of limud haTorah and the great zechus – as the Gemara says, “noshim bemai zachyon” – that the women have in supporting their husbands and encouraging them to spend time engaged in limud haTorah.

The event was not, as some outlets reported, a “Siyum Hashas,” but rather a celebration of those who support lomdei haTorah, namely, the noshim tzidkanios who serve as pillars of support and chizuk to their husbands.
