Mrs Schuchat was always smiling, her warmth and kindness was genuine. She was always so friendly and caring asking how everyone in my family is doing whenever I met her. I will surely miss her!

Mrs. Shuchat was pure sunshine — so pleasant and good-natured. Whenever we’d meet, we’d have a delightful conversation. Such a caring woman, always trying to help others, making shidduchim and more. She may be gone (tho I can’t believe it yet), but the light she spread remains in the world, within the hearts of all she touched, burning bright and ready for us to pass on to others.

I can’t believe it.
What a special lady.
She always took Our College Girls from UCF, Orlando, who called her BUBBY.
She was so gracious, caring and young at heart.
She will be surely missed.
May Hashem comfort her lovely family.

Mrs. shuchat, my adopted Bubby, her warmth and love that eliminated to all that she cared for. I should always live up to the potential she saw in me. I lived with her for a year during my seminary year at machon chana, we would chat for hours till it got very late. I truely miss her, may her neshama go straight to gan eden!! – Rivkah Berkovich

She always had a pleasant expression and I never heard her speak about other people- and that’s the highest praise I can offer anyone.

Dear everyone,
Guest
Dear everyone,

My Bubby loved people and she would surely derive the greatest nachas if we would all try to increase our achdus, even with something as simple as smiling more to others in the street, and thereby bring Moshiach now!

Boruch Dayan Ha’emes. Such sad news. Nechama Dina, you are in my thoughts today, along with warm and fuzzy thoughts about your mother. To see her meant a conversation would ensue, never about her, only about how my family, my kids, my parents were doing. So many lessons learned, lead by example. Hamakom yenachem eschem

I remember in the 1970’s that she made a sheva brochos for a bal teshuva couple that she just heard about that got married and had no parental support. A big loss for Crown Heights

BDE. She was such a lovely lady. Being friends with her daughter Leah in Bais Rivka Seminary, I spent lots of time at her home. She was like a mother away from home and made me feel like part of the family. I will call Leah.

Baruch Dayan Haemes……..
we were some how distantly related, and I gave her a siddur that belongs to that relative……..she was so happy to receive it, and said she’d try to say a kapitel tehillim from it on Rosh Hashana……such a warm and happy person…she will be missed!

Special person
Guest
Special person

Such a unique and special person. Such a kind soul. Her hachnosas orchim knew no limits. Her emunah and bitachon knew no bounds. Her hiskashrus to the Rebbe was immense. She only had good things to say about people. Was always running to shiurim, mivtzoim and doing for others. Basha treated anyone who crossed her path like true family. She tool such pride in the shlichus work of her children and grandchildren and supported them in any way she could. She was one of the unsung heros of CH who will be sorely missed by her many family and friends.… Read more »

she did sheva brachos for me, she had me numerous times for shabbos in the ’70’s, and more. She really lived as a regal Jewish woman, and taught the essence of hachnassos orchim through all the people she helped. Yes, as was said in #37, she always greeted me with a smile, and asked geniune and specific questions.

I was once chatting with mrs shuchat after a shiur in 770, sharing that I did not want to ask my mother in law for help in a specific situation. I did not want to put her out. mrs shuchat asked me, if ever thought that perhaps I may be doing her a favor? that an elderly person might be happy to feel needed? it was a valuable piece of advice that I try to remember.

My sweet Basha

May your family be comforted through this new chapter in life. Your mother was like a second mother to me after I lost my own mother. I was dropped off in Crown Heights in the wee hours of the morning. Her neighbor, a friend of a friend, had been hit by a bus and was not able to host me overnight. This gal said, don’t worry, let me call my landlord, Basha. The rest is history. I was supposed to check into the Machon Chana dorm the next morning, but Basha would hear none of that. This is your room,… Read more »
