The Kaliver Rebbetzin a”h


candle-small5It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rebbetzin Chana Sara Shifra Taub a”h, the Kaliver Rebbetzin, wife of the Kaliver Rebbe of Eretz Yisroel. She was 94.

The Rebbetzin passed away this afternoon at Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim. She had suffered from serious illness in recent years.

She was a daughter of Rav Pinchas Shapiro of Kechnia and was a descendant of Rav Meir Premishlaner.

The Rebbetzin was a true ishah chashuvah, who, with humility, aidelkeit and grace, served as a right hand to her husband in his avodas hakodesh.

The Rebbetzin would encourage her husband to engage in activities that bring estranged Jews closer to their Father in Shomayim, stating that while she didn’t merit to have biological children in this world, “at least we will have children in Olam Haba.”

The levaya is being held this evening at the Kaliver Bais Medrash on Rechov Chana, followed by kevurah on Har Hazeisim.

Yehi zichrah boruch.
