It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rebbetzin Shaina Rochel Niman a”h of Queens.
Rebbetzin Neiman was the wife of Rav Shmuel Niman zt”l, longtime maggid shiur and mashgiach at Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim of Queens.
An isha chashuvah who was supremely selfless, Rebbetzin Niman stood at the side of her husband, a talmid of Yeshivas Telshe and then Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim in Williamsburg. Rav Niman remained a part of Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim for some 70 years, first as a talmid and then as a member of the hanhalah, Rebbetzin Niman allowed her husband to engage in harbotzas haTorah while she tended to domestic duties and numerous chassodim.
Rebbetzin Niman is survived by her children, Rabbi Yisroel Yitzchok Niman, Rabbi Tzvi Nochum Niman, Rabbi Dovid Niman, Rabbi Naftoli Niman, Mrs. Chana Greenblatt, Mrs. Yitta Freidman and Mrs. Chevy Shmidman, as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The levayah will be held at Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim, located at 76-01 147th Street in Flushing, NY.
Yehi zichrah boruch.
