It is with great sadness that reports the tragic passing of Shaindy Mashinsky a”h of Monsey, NY. She was 18 years old.

Shaindy was a daughter of Rav Yosef Nachman Mashinsky, menahel of Yeshiva Bais Dovid Elementary School of Monsey and leader of Kupath Ezrah of Rockland County.

Shaindy’s mother, Mrs. Breindel Leah Mashinsky a”h, passed away twelve years ago.

Shaindy was a granddaughter of Rav Hershel z”l and Rebbetzin Malka Mashinsky a”h. Rav Hershel was the co-founder of Kupath Ezrah of Rockland County and a longtime rebbi at Yeshiva of Spring Valley who was renowned in the community for his expertise in the field of chinuch and his unceasing involvement in tzorchei tzibbur. Shaindy’s father, Rav Yosef, has carried on that tradition with his work in the world of chinuch and his efforts in the realm of chesed.

Tragically, he has now suffered the loss of his daughter some years after first losing his rebbetzin. לקינו בכפלים.

Shaindy from Bais Rochel High School in June and was set to start seminary in several weeks.

Shaindy succumbed to wounds sustained in an accident that took place at about 9 p.m. last night on Route 59, near Augusta Drive, in Monsey. She was critically injured upon being hit by a car and was taken by Hatzolah to Westchester Trauma Center in Valhalla, NY, where doctors fought to save her life. With the guidance of the Skulener Rebbe, the name Alte was added and Yidden davened for Alte Shaindel bas Breindel Leah. Unfortunately, she passed away this morning.

The levayah will be held at 11 a.m. at Khal Avreichim, Rav Chaim Feivel Schneebalg’s shul, located at 31 Dover Terrace in Monsey, followed by kevurah in Shikun Skver.

  3. Shaindy was one of the most alive girls I ever met. She touched everyone’s heart. She left us all grieving. May Hashem be menachem the family and bring Moshiach fast.
