It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rebbetzin Chana Golombeck a”h.
Rebbetzin Golombeck, an isha chashuvah and a special woman in her own right, was the wife of Rav Avrohom Golombeck zt”l, mashgiach of the Philadelphia Yeshiva for approximately 50 years.
Rebbetzin Golombeck, née Donner, hailed from Brooklyn. She served as an eizer kenegdo to her husband in the truest sense of the word, enabling him to perform with his avodas hakodesh and giving up of herself and her husband on behalf of the Philadelphia Yeshiva.
While raising their large family together, Rebbetzin Golombeck was an equal partner in all that Rav Golombeck did and was instrumental in enabling him to live the very spiritual life of Torah, yiras Shomayim and tremendous dikduk b’mitzvos and chumros.
In particular, during Rav Golombeck’s last years, when he was plagued by illness and multiple serious medical conditions, Rebbetzin Golombeck stood by his side and was instrumental in helping preserve his precarious health and giving him the strength to carry on.
Rebbetzin Golombeck leaves behind a wonderful family of children and grandchildren who follow in her path. Her children are Chaya Rappaport of Yerushalayim, Mrs. Malki Gut of Bensonhurst, Rabbi Yaakov Golombeck of Lakewood, Mrs. Dina Geneslaw of Flatbush, Reb Meir Golombeck of Lakewood, Rabbi Shimon Golombeck of Lakewood, Mrs. Rochel Mandel of Flatbush, Mrs. Yehudis Herzka, and Rabbi Yitzchok Zev Golombeck of Lakewood. She was predeceased by her son, Reb Yechezkel z”l.
The levayah was held earlier today in Brooklyn. Kevurah will take place in Eretz Yisroel.
Yehi zichrah boruch.
