She taught my sisters and I in Bnos Menachem. The chassidishe chinuch that she gave her preschool students was unique. I always marveled at the way she was able to give over chassidic concepts in a way that her young students could relate to. I now teach in preschool, and I can now truly appreciate her talent. Morah Raizel you are missed, but you will be remembered.

Such a special person

Her eveready smile and friendly hello will be sorely missed.

November 21, 2021 7:50 pm

How much more of this agonizing PAIN?? We were promised that Moshiach is arriving at any moment now. Is this chas v’shalom a prelude to Moshiach?? Please please please Hashem WE’VE HAD ENOUGH! We cannot soothe this family by saying Hashem knows what He is doing.. We must soothe them by saying she will be back literally momentarily with Techiyas HaMeisim, her amongst all of those lying in the dust. G-d NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW! Your children are HURTING and ONLY YOU can heal them! We’re sick of this golus, can’t bear any more, WHY CAN’T YOU OPEN THE… Read more »

Morah Raizel
November 21, 2021 8:20 pm

Morah Raizel taught my daughters at Bnos Menachem many years ago and would always greet me and my children with her genuine smile every time she saw us. She would stop and say hello with big bright smile.
I was so impressed with her ability to convey the way a true chosid of the Rebbe should be.
She was always dressed tastefully and elegant.
My heart goes out to her beautiful children.
She will remain forever in our hearts.
ברוך דיין האמת

A very special Morah
November 21, 2021 8:31 pm

I have the zchus to have had Morah Razel as my Morah. Even though I was very young she had a great impact on me. Every time i’d see her she would have give a beautiful smile. I always felt her love and care. You could see on her face her erlichkeit and love of teaching. About a month ago I saw her saying Tehillim on her portch. Today we lossed a very special Neshama.
May her Neshama have an Aliya.

One of a kind !

Morah Raizel , what an extraordinary person …..she was warm and personable yet said it how it is , she was regal and well dressed but humble and approachable , was a fun and creative Morah , but ran a tight ship . Morah Raziel had a wealth of knowledge and passionately and beautifully ( words can’t describe) imparted Torah and chassidus to our children . I’m honored to have worked with her and my daughters are lucky to have been taught by her . She will truly be missed ! Hashem should comfort her family and all of us… Read more »

Morah Raizel
November 21, 2021 10:15 pm

She was such a loving teacher, and I still remember how she made yiddishkiet fun and exciting with singing many songs while snapping our fingers. Whenever we saw her on the street she always said a warm hello with a joke like, “wow now your taller then me!” My heart is broken for the loss for her family, and all who knew her.

Horrible!!! 😱😥😥
November 21, 2021 10:19 pm

She was my Morah in preschool. Whenever I saw her she was so happy to see me, and was always so warm and friendly. Such a special person!! Heartbreaking !!💔

A pillor has fallen
November 21, 2021 10:33 pm

Raizel was a genuine sweet respectful woman. We always stopped each other to say hello on the street. I am heartbroken.
Her neighbor.

Another neighbor
November 21, 2021 11:44 pm

Raizel wins the prize for being the friendliest neighbor. When we moved to the next block, we would often meet in passing. She was super friendly and warm. When one of her children married my cousin, it was as if we had become directly related. A genuine, warm and caring women. It wasn’t the hello and good bye of most neighbors. Raizel wouldn’t just nod a greeting of recognition. She truly wanted to know how one was doing. May her beautiful family be comforted w Moshiach coming NOW!! A good hachlata for the community to establish in her memory is… Read more »

Raizel was beloved by all. Zi hot gemeint mit an Emes. She was a chassidshe teacher….old school..warm and she was loved by all. Parents wanted their children in her class….warmth radited from her…… Bnos Menachem opened..and her class was so popular …she taught the old school way… Her smile her good mornings to young and old….and genuinely shared in everyone Simcha. She made soo many shidduchim….had a share in building beautiful families…..and had the zcbus of having such a beautiful beautiful family of her own KAH. She was a devoted mother grandmother relative friend and had wonderful leadership qualities….. May… Read more »

Heart and home opened to all.

I am not a frequent guest- part of my anxiety of traveling is where will I be hosted in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Well for the last 35 years it was at Razel’s table. I know that I will reciprocate to others in the fashion that you have demonstrated.

Special lady
November 22, 2021 1:02 am

A unique, regal woman person. Always saw her being polite, soft-spoken, well-dressed, loved by students and parents… What a loss for the living humankind. Grateful to have been in some way part of her orbit. Condolences to her unique family.

I will miss her soooo much!! A very special, unique person.

Raizel was one of a kind. Her home was open to all. She had a warm genuine smile that reflected her warm heart. Always happy and had a kind word for everyone.

November 22, 2021 2:43 am

A lovely, refined lady, a brilliant educator… this is a tragedy not only for her family but for the community. May Adel Raizel bas Avrohom Dovid be a meilitz yasher for everyone. She will be very much missed.

November 22, 2021 4:24 am

Morah Raizel taught in my school, and I’ll never forget for years after while seeing her on the street she always passed me by with a warm smile. We lost a very special neshama today. May Hashem comfort her family and all of us

November 22, 2021 6:25 am


I don’t know her at all, but I do know her son and I am just as heartbroken as everyone else. My heart goes out to this wonderful family. May you & your Mishpacha know of no more sorrow. HASHEM, WHY?!?!? HOW MUCH LONGER IS IT GOING TO BE? HOW MUCH MORE PAIN AND SUFFERING MUST WE ENDURE? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH PLEASE PUT AN END TO THIS BITTER GALUS AND SEND MOSHIACH NOW!!!!!

ברוך דיין האמת I will miss meeting her on the streets of crown Hts and supermarket With her chArming warm smiles and hellos to me. As she knew me from all the daycares. Mosdos all my children and Brooklyn heights. What an inspiration she was to me and all of the children in crown heights. She was soft spoken in her monthly gatherings in each class with her words and songs of each Yiddishe month. What an lively neshomo we lost as she gave over her knowledge of the Torah. May her mother and siblings and children and her husband… Read more »

When I first came to CH with our local shliach in 1970, Raizel was one of the first people to come up to me and introduce herself. Warm, friendly and kind, she made me feel included from the very beginning. Shortly thereafter, I came to Beth Rivkah and we were in the same class. She was the first Kallah in our class. May she be a melitzah yesheira for her children, her family and all of Am Yisrael.

November 22, 2021 9:49 am

An incredible mother teacher and human being. She was blessed with a wonderful husband and special Chasdidishe children and Mispocho. A terrible loss to all who knew her
