Raitza Kosofsky was a one of a kind person who devoted her whole life to others and the Rebbe in our Chicago community. She was loved, respected, and admired by all her knew her. She will be greatly missed but now we know that her holy Neshama will certainly help to bring Moshiach very soon.

Mrs Kosofsky was the kindest, most sincere, most generous and loving woman. I have never met anyone remotely like her in her ability to combine chesed (for others) and gevurah (for herself).

Mrs Kosofsky is an icon of giving and warmth. I haven’t seen her in many years but still remember her easy smile, her way of making people feel comfortable, and her very giving and generous way that felt so natural. What a beautiful person. May her neshama have an Aliya. And may her zechusim stand by her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren kah.

Both Mrs. Kosofsky and her husband were so humble and easy to be around. Only in reading these articles posted after their petiras did I find out how incredibly accomplished they were, and how great were their contributions to their community. I am so impressed and grateful to have met them.

Mina I was so sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother a”h was an incredible woman and was always so proud of you. המקום ינחם אותך.

This lady you can write a book about! She was a role model of a chasidiste and one of the most refined ladies I ever met.
When I came from Russia and started my yidishket journey, she helped me tremendously. Even though I did not stay in Lubavitch , she helped me a lot and was always there for me. All my grandkids in a sense, her grand-grandkids. Her memory should be a brocho for all .
