    An exceptional teacher, a warm and caring, persona dug a Chaya and a ledger in her time. A truly exceptional woman. I was one of those who had the zechus of attending the weekly shiur in her home after we completed high school. Thank you Mrs Aron and Mr Aron

    I had the privilege of teaching together with Mrs Aron my first years at Beth Rivkah secondary.
    What a wealth of knowledge. So approachable. Much much better then “Google”. Her passion for tanaach was infections , making me enthusiastic to walk into my classroom to share what I just learned from Mrs Aron

    Mrs. Aron obm, was a true Eisher Chayil and merited to arichas yomim. Fabulous teacher, forty years later still remember what she taught!

    Mrs Aron was the first young married woman in Melbourne to cover her hair. It was completely unheard of at the time, but to her it wasn’t even a question. (Lubavitch didn’t even exist in Melbourne at the time.)

    I had the amazing zchut to learn Hebrew and T’nach from Mrs. Aron z”l. Her excellent teaching skills equipped me with such a high standard of Hebrew that when I made aliya after high school I became integrated into university studies and Israeli life easily. When I later taught English as a second language I instinctively used many of Mrs. Aron’s methods.She was a true eyshet chayil and scholar. May she be a melitzat yosher for her family and kol am Yisrael.
