    Although it’s been decades since she taught my sons, I always called her “Morah Hecht,” and would light up whenever I saw her. Her warmth was a special gift. She is greatly missed!

    She spoke to all in a very warm, loving way. When she met you she greeted you with a smile and was interested in how you were doing. She was regal and was very intuitive.

    Mrs. Hecht was truly a special woman! Whenever I saw her in the street, she always stopped me and asked how I was doing as well as my kids. I really miss her!

    Yes Penina! Was just recounting how I met Reb Hecht on the way for the first time to Crown Heights from Bais Chana Minnesota…The Hechts lived just outside CH in East Flatbush To help prepare me for a new life (encouraging me to discard my inappropriate pants wardrobe) Rebbetzen Hecht just unexpectedly and generously took her own saved fabric and right there in her home sewed a lovely respectful skirt which became my uniform…many years later I told her about a wonderful Rabbi Paltiel shiur in 770. She soon began attending herself and we would sometimes share a short chazora… Read more »
