So sorry to hear. She was my sons teacher and we will never forget her. A true educator, the children all loved her and listened to her! For years after she always said hi to us when we saw her in the street. An inspiration to know. The world has lost a one of a kind diamond.

I am so very sorry to read this…Mrs. Hecht was one of the nicest ladies in Crown Heights… she always told me to call her Chaya, but I just couldn’t – she was someone whom I looked up to and admired a lot. Her late husband held a special place in my husband’s heart.

She passed away on Rosh Chodesh, erev Shabbos… very fitting for such a Chassishe lady. Rivkah, Devorie and the entire family – Hamakom Yenachem Eschem B’soych Shaar Aveilay Zion v”Yerushalyim.

Rebbetzin Hecht had an inner dignity that one felt as soon as you saw her. She was a somaiach bchelkah,and though she never was allluent materially,she was a lady who possessed the kind of riches that one is able to take with them to the world of Olom haemess
