    Mrs Korf was my Chumash teacher. A brilliant woman with a passion for Chinuch, she was a dynamic and excellent teacher. May her Neshama have an Aliyah.

    Wonderful special teacher and friend to many. Mrs. Korf was my teacher in grade school and high school, and I considered
    Mrs. Korf like an Aunty, special neshama.

    Rabbi Zalman Korf from Chabad of Walnut Creek is in the middle of a charidy campaign to build a Shul. He obviously has more to deal with today. Please help him reach his goal in memory of his beloved mother, the head Shlucha of Florida https://www.charidy.com/walnutcreek

    I have been saying Tehillim for her every day for years, ever since people were asked to say Tehillim. I never had the zchus to meet her but I know she suffered from an illness for a long time. Hamokom Yenachem eschem…

    I was fortunate to grow up in Miami Beach and was blessed to spend much time with Mrs. Korf. She was a wonderful woman who constantly propelled her husband in all of the Rebbes shluchas. She had a constant smile with a smart wit about her. She will be sorely missed. May she continue to watch over all her kids and her whole community.

    Rabbi A. Korf recently emailed out to FL shluchim the announcement of the 187th Chabad center in the State of Florida.

    Mrs. Korf was my teacher and I attended the Shabbos Shiurim she would give in South Beach. She was very clear spoken and interesting to listen to.
    Wishing the entire family much strength – והחי יתן אל לבו !

    When I was 15, mid 70’s, I had the z’chus to meet the Korf family for the first time. Chesed was like a must by the Rebbetzin. She told me to the effect that you don’t leave my house without having something to nosh. Subsequently, I had many occasions where I enjoyed a Sabbos or Yom Tov seuda by them.
    Now, the activities and successes of the Korf family should only skyrocket, Bli Gevul!

    I remember Mrs Korf always smiling and looking very busy. Rabbi Korf was an officiant at our chuppah. Mrs Korf your children have shown us such hospitality and ju s t such kindness when we lived in Miami. Your neshoma is so loved. I and my family wish the family a long life. Until Moahiach very soon.

    Always warm, smiling, approachable, yet highly intelligent and completely devoted to her family, shlichus and each member of the community. A role model for so many.
