Such a lovely lady, we shopped there regularly. I can still picture Reb Mayer, Mrs. Farkas and their son behind the counter, with those amazing old posters on the walls!

Straight to Gan Eden for everything she suffered and for all that she did in CH.

Both she and her husband were extraordinarily fine people. These are the people that the Aibeshter has in mind, when he proudly shows off his children. May they both rest in peace in Gan Eden, until they arise to reap their true reward at the time of Techiyas Hameisim.

When I was in beis Rivkah seminary ,before there was a dorm,and we had to shop and cook for ourselves….I used to shop there. She always had a friendly word to say and made me feel welcome. Then when I got married and lived in crown heights for a year, I continued shopping there….it was a friendly place. I can picture it still! And of course, the pickles….haven’t thought of them in years but this reminded me.
She should have a lichtig gan eden
