The tragic and sudden passing of Hadassah Lebovic, a beloved 12-year-old Chabad girl who suffered from a terrible illness, has saddened and shocked many in the Jewish community in Crown Heights and beyond.
Her levaya on Gimmel Tammuz, yartzeit of the Rebbe, was attended by a large crowd including her fellow students from the Beis Rivkah girls school, paying tribute to her upbeat and loving personality.
Friends of the family announced that they will be dedicating and naming a new women’s mikvah in her memory.
The mikvah will be built in the Inner Circle bungalow colony in Loch Sheldrake, a hamlet in the Town of Fallsburg near Liberty, New York, for those spending the summer months in the Catskills.
The friends of the family and members of the the Mikvah Hadassah Committee are Zalman Willhelm, Mendel Laine, Leibi Marazov and Tzemach Rosenfeld.
“Hadassah was a fun, loving, friendly, special girl. She illuminated every room that she entered. Throughout her life she made a positive impact on all those who knew her. Her passing was a shock to all of us,” they wrote.
“In an effort to find the light in this dark moment, we are announcing (this) new initiative,” they said. “We chose this undertaking of building a Mikvah of living, purifying waters, to reflect the pure, genuine soul of our beloved young Hadassah.”
The committee are asking relatives and friends of the Lebovic family to partake in the campaign to build the beautiful Mikvah.
