I am so shocked to read this! I knew Riva from when I first arrived in Crown Heights: one of the nicest women I have ever known. I never heard a bad word from her lips. I am truly devastated and send my heartfelt sympathies to her husband, siblings and her children, some of whom I taught. Baruch Dayan HaEmet, Riva will be very much missed.

BDE. I am so sorry for the loss of your wife and your mother. My heart goes out to all her siblings as well. She was an amazing person. She had a good heart for chinuch. She will sorely be missed.

Morah Riva was a top educator. She believed and taught kids proper manners and Torah in a solid beautiful way. We were fortunate to have her teach our daughter. She believed in her students, although they were young they were shown so much of their potential. May the family be comforted.

I loved Morah Riva as a stellar hearted woman and the best , insightful , and immensely talented Morah.
She is a role model as a strong Jewish woman. She will inspire generations forever.
Riva, bring Moshiach. You can certainly accomplish this monumental feat.
Miss you and love you.
