The tragic and sudden passing of Hadassah Lebovic obm, 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.
Following her sudden passing, a new women’s mikvah is planned to be built in her memory.
Miami philanthropists David and Eda Schottenstein and Empire Builders LLC of New York City have announced that they will be matching donations today for the campaign to support “Mikvah Hadassah” that is being dedicated in her honor.
A letter has been released by friends of the family, asking the public to participate:
Dear Family and Friends,
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.
In an effort to find the light in this dark moment, we are announcing a new initiative: a beautiful Mikvah to be built in Hadassah’s name for the summer community of Inner Circle in Liberty, NY. We chose this undertaking of building a Mikvah of living, purifying waters, to reflect the pure, genuine soul of our beloved young Hadassah.
We are asking all of the Lebovics family and friends to partake in this beautiful project.
