Hachnosas Orchim
March 18, 2024 2:10 pm

Esther was known for her exemplary hachnosas orchim – especially welcoming many guests for Tishrei in her home free of charge- she always said “ I cannot charge for the Rebbe’s guests”

We will miss her tremendously!

Esther was full of simchas hachayim, always showing interest and looking out for others.
She was a special woman with many zechusim and will be missed by the many people who knew and loved her!

Still can’t believe this is true! 😭

May she be a meilitz yosher for all of us here and help bring the ultimate peace and geulah that we so desperately need!!

Have a picture of our dear friend. I don’t want to make assumptions of the wrong lady. Of course, either way it’s sooo sad. What is Hashem waiting for? Why have we got to take this road to Moshiach. All those who lie in the dust WILL COME BACK AGAIN IYH so why bother taking them away now as WE MISS THEM SOO MUCH!

She will be missed

אסתר המקסימה עם הלב זהב תמיד אירחה אנשים בלי תשלום בביתה ובמיוחד בחגים. עם חיוך על הפנים ומתעניינת בשלום כל אחת. תמיד לבושה צנוע ויפה מוכנה לקבל פני משיח. אסתר אהבה והשתדלה להגיע כל שבת ל 770 למקום הקבוע שלה למרות המרחק מביתה. גם בשבת האחרונה ב”ה זכינו לראות ולדבר איתה ב 770 .חבל על דאבדין ולא משתכחין !! שתהיה מליצת יושר על כל עם ישראל משיח עכשיו מ

A Sad Loss..

She was a quiet, pleasant woman who didn’t make much of herself, just interested in doing what HKB”H wanted. Her ways were pleasant and discreet. We can learn a lot from her. Her merit should stand in our defense.

Esther was a true tzadekes. Very friendly. Selfless and dedicated to Hashem and the Rebbe.

I am shocked and so sad

Esther was such a lovely woman – in spite of her personal challenges in life, she was always ready with her warm smile, a good word and a laugh. BH she was able to travel to Israel regularly to stay in touch with her siblings and their families. We should ALL travel to Israel to reunite with Esther and the Rebbe and all those that we long to see again with Moshiach NOW !!!

She was a wonderful mikveh lady. Her years of dedication in a pleasant way coupled with her yiras shamayim was outstanding. עד מתי?

March 18, 2024 10:16 pm

She put her heart into her duties at the women’s mikvah. She treated her job as a holy merit and the women with respect.

I didn’t know her so well, we happen to land at the same shiur a few times and her simchas hachaim was palpable! She was always kind and smiling. A special woman

אסתר אורך קורן תהי נשמתה צרורה בצרור החיים

נזהרה בדיבור ותמיד התענינה לשלום המשפחה וחברים ניפתה את המילים ועצרה אותנו מלהגרר ללשון הרע היתה גבורת נפש ,גילתה חיבה מיוחדת ,תמיד נזכור אותה בהליכותיה הצנועה חסודה ונשתדל להתחקות לה יהי זכרה ברוך

Esther!!!! I miss you so much already!
March 19, 2024 9:42 am

You were so dedicated to the Rebbe!!!
Always prepared the Mikvah to be perfectly ready. All your life wasn’t personal it was for everyone else! Can’t believe this happened so sudden! You must shake the heavens to bring the Rebbe with Mashiach now!!!!!

לא להאמין!!!
March 19, 2024 9:47 am

אסתר היקרה והאהובה על כולם!
באיזו מסירות הגעת ל770 כדי להיות עם הרבי בתפילות!
את אישה חזקה, עם מלא כח רצון לא להאמין שמלאך המוות הצליח לקחת אותך ועוד כ״כ מוקדם!
ההתמסרות שלך לעניינים של הרבי לא ניתנים בכלל לתיאור
ההכנסת אורחים שלך וההארת פנים לכולם.
זכית לקירובים מיוחדים כ״כ מהרבי!
את אמרת שאת תזכי לראות את הרבי שוב פה למטה, איפה את ואיפה הרבי???
מחכים לכם פה למטה מעשרה טפחים נשמה בגוף ביחד עם כל עמ״י

Dear Esther was an Ambassador representing the Rebbe’s light. When I first arrived in Crown Heights 50 years ago Esther eased the way by being a friendly and kindly neighbor. I imagined everyone in the community welcomed newcomers with the same open arms. But Esther was unique. I cannot remember even once when she showed anything other than an upbeat pleasant countenance…never any negative expression. Actually she was truly excited and thrilled to run into you at any time or place. It seemed As if Esther was just waiting for this moment to see YOU Always that Wow factor!. A… Read more »

Such a special woman helping women perform such a special Mitzvah.

What?! This is so sad

Esther was such an amazing person. I only know her as the mikvah lady, but as an out of towner, there were times i needed to go to the mikvah very late. She was always so pleasant and nice about waiting. Never made me feel rushed or uncomfortable even if it was after midnight. Always showered me with brachos. I am so sad and shocked to hear this news.
