Mrs. Masha Vogel, a longtime dedicated Shlucha in Rochester, NY, passed away on Yom Kippur, 5783.
She was 64, just days away from her birthday on 28 Tishrei.
From her parents, R. Shmuel Meir and Bas Sheva Silberstein obm, Masha absorbed her deep love for Yiddishkeit and Hiskashrus to the Rebbe.
In 1981, on their third wedding anniversary, Masha with her husband and toddler came to Rochester, NY to serve as the Rebbe’s Shluchim. As a Shlucha for over 41 years she was a powerhouse of Emunah, hospitality, friendship and kindness – especially to those who found themselves in the most difficult circumstances.
The so many who loved her will sorely miss her sincerity, strength, and genuine warmth while continuing to be inspired by her shining example.
She is survived by her husband Nechemia Vogel and children Devorah Leah Yaras – Rochester, NY, Levi Vogel – S. Augustine, FL, Rishi Hein – Pittsford, NY, Chaim Vogel – Crown Heights, Moshe Vogel – Rochester, NY, Mushkie Posner – Kingston, PA, Chezky Vogel – Missoula, MT, Shayna Vogel – Rochester, NY, Mendel Vogel – Crown Heights, and Yossi Vogel – Rochester, NY, and grandchildren.
