Rebbetzin Sarah Hany Kaminsky a”h


It is with great sadness that reports the passing of Rebbetzin Sarah Hany Kaminsky a”h. She was in her 60s.

Rebbetzin Kaminsky was the wife of Rav Hershel Kaminsky, R”M at Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn. She was a daughter of Rav Shmuel Berenbaum zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn, and a granddaughter of Rav Avrohom Kalmanowitz zt”l, founding rosh yeshiva of Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn.

Rebbetzin Kaminsky was a veteran mechaneches, who was loved by her talmidos at Yeshiva of Brooklyn, Machon Bais Yaakov and later at Mesores Bais Yaakov in Brooklyn, where she taught. Her students – and her colleagues – learned so much from her, inspired by her love of Torah, ahavas Hashem, and ahavas Yisroel. She was an outstanding role model, personifying the modesty, humility, beauty and majesty of an aim b’Yisroel.

Her petirah has plunged her family and many admirers into mourning.

Rebbetzin Kaminsky is survived by her illustrious husband, Rav Hershel, and their outstanding mishpacha, children who are bnei and bnos Torah, as well as grandchildren. She is also survived by her siblings, Rebbetzin Gittel Shepansky, wife of Rav Reuven Shepansky, R”M at Mirrer Yeshiva; Rebbetzin Goldy Sorotzkin, wife of Rav Elya Meir Sorotzkin, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Tiferes Boruch of Springfield/Plainfield; Rav Osher Berenbaum, Rav Yisroel Berenbaum, Rav Avrohom Berenbaum, Rav Elchonon Berenbaum, and Rav Meir Shimon Berenbaum.

The levayah will be held today at 11 a.m. at Shomrei Hadas Chapels, located at 3803 14th Avenue in Boro Park, Brooklyn.

Yehi zichro boruch.
