So refined and gracious. Always made the experience of buying a new Capota a great experience. She and her husband zl felt so proud to provide Capotas for the Lubavitch community. May she have a lichtiger Gan Eden.

Thank you for all you and your husband have done

The world lost the best woman.

When I was a little girl I used to sometimes go with my father to the store. As I got older and would go to Boro Park to do my own shopping, I would stop in her store frequently to say hello she always used to call me whenever a Lubavitcher boy would come in to her store, and ask if I’d be interested.

I only saw this wonderful person once, but I’m sure of one thing, that she had a long happy & healthy life!! May her pure & holy Neshoma have an Aliyah

Over the years,I remember her during the few times we vsited. while we lived in Crown Heights, LA and later, Israel: I came several times to her store to get my husband a new kapota. she was so elegant and refined. She made sure that his kapota jacket fit just right, and also provided me with alot of covered buttons to take home .She took extra special care, that his garment with two pair of pants, and even some extra material would be ready and packaged well for the flight home to Israel. Feeling sad today. Chana Schoenberg

Truly a special woman, as was her husband.

In my opinion, Hartstein’s was the only place to purchase a consistently well made Kapota. I hope the business will continue to thrive.

very nice chossid

we once came in and when she asked where we are from she recognized that one of her nephews did business in our town. right away, she asked my husband to check on his business when we got home to see if it was o.k.

Such an Ehrliche lady…

Mrs Hartstein was always so sweet & accommodating; & she definitely knew her trade extremely well. It was a pleasure meeting with her on those occasions where we came all the way from CA to purchase Kapotas for our family.
Wishing Warm Condolences & strength to all her family. May her Heilike Neshama go directly to Gan Eden.

Condolences to extended family of the Hartsteins

It’s so sad to hear that both the Hartstein couple are both gone now. I remember going with my husband 26yrs ago to get fitted for his 1st kaputa that he wore for our chatuna. My husband tries to patch it up. He won’t throw it out because to him, it was such a special garment. My husband always wears it every Shabbos except Yom Tovim & going to shul. He wears a newer one but the very first one is treasured. Condolences to the family they were surrounded by.
