It with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Mrs. Rochel Brocha Kreitman a”h, wife of Rav Binyomin Kreitman (Toronto – Monsey), and daughter of Rav Yaakov Fruchter.
Mrs. Kreitman lived a life of selflessness with princeliness in all circumstances throughout her numbered years on this world. She always took an interest and cared for everyone them in every way possible, with great tzniyus and no fanfare, always seeking out ways of helping people, without the recipient feeling that she’s doing anything for them.
The chesed of both Rabbi and Mrs. Kreitman in the Toronto community over the past 25 years was exemplary and unparalleled.
Mrs. Kreitman was diagnosed a few years ago with the machlah. She endured terrible yissurim, but with no complaining whatsoever. Her gevura and emunah shone through constantly throughout her short 40+ years on this world.
Mrs. Kreitman’s pure neshomoh was taken on Monday morning. Her petirah plunged her family and many close friends of the Kreitman family into mourning.
The levaya took place Monday afternoon at Beis Medrash Nachlas Moshe in Monsey.
The maspidim were:
Rav Binyomin Greenbaum, uncle
Rav Moshe Rotberg, brother-in-law
Rav Chaim Mendel Brodsky
Rav Fruchter, brother of the nifteres
Yehuda Leib Kreitman, son
Rav Binyomin Kreitman, husband
Keil Molei – R’ Shloime Boruch Kreitman, brother-in-law.
