Mattil Fleishman, a woman who lived in Crown Heights and was active in organizing daily Torah classes at 770 Eastern Parkway for women, passed away on Sunday, 8 Elul, 5779.
She was 68.
Mattil lived in Crown Heights for the past decade, a resident at the home of Feigie Jacobson, and was a kind, humble, intelligent and refined woman, Mrs. Jacobson said.
“She had a lot of Hakaras Hatov, she was always thanking me for everything that was done for her, whether it was the meals I prepared or anything else,” Jacobson said.
Mattil worked for Ariela Benhiyoun, the organizer of the Beit Midrash L’Noshim program at 770 Eastern Parkway, coordinating daily classes, shiurim and farbrengens for women with known rabbis and lecturers from the neighborhood. She also organized the recording of the women’s shiurim for distribution.
She was a regular at Lefferts Shul in Crown Heights, and helped with the weekly Kiddush along with a group of women.
She was not feeling well for the past two weeks, and she suddenly passed away today.
Mattil has no family, and the funeral is being organized by Rabbi Avrohom Lider of Ahavas Chesed, who asks that anyone who can should please attend.
“It is a big zechus to give this Jewish woman her final Kovod,” Rabbi Lider said.
The levaya will take place today, Monday, passing by 770 at 3 pm and burial in Montefiore Cemetery.
