The Minkowitz run a summer camp as part of their shlichus, and I am truly honore and humbled to say that I am one of the counselors that were given this great privelidge. However, we didn’t just go for the summer and see them Once a week when got our paycheck. I along with 17 other girls not only lived, but took over their house for 6 weeks To the point that they had their own kids sleeping in their room… Read more »

I still remember picking up Rabbi Hirshy and Rashi from the airport in 1998 to take them to spend a Shabbat in the Beth Tefillah neighborhood and interview for the position of shluchim for Chabad of Alpharetta. Nine years after that, I had the privelige of moving into the Chabad of North Fulton neighborhood with my family in January 2007. Words cannot do credit to the degree of emptiness my family and I are feeling right now in response to this inexplicable tragedy. I pray that G-d gives strength to the enormous number of people, family and friends alike, whose… Read more »

She is a true inspiration. She made us all feel at home. I truly have the best memories from my summer there. We literally lived and took over her house and she did it with a smile.

I didn’t know Rashi, but I just checked out her Facebook pictures.. And I am so inspired from her. She seems like that perfect role model of a shlucha, mother and friend.
Her children look adorable, put together and happy.
She looks like the balabusta type with tons of baking and having fun with her kids.
I wish to one day be like her in the way she seems to have run her family and her shlichus, getting the most out of life and bringing happiness to others.
I can’t imagine what these kids are going through now!!

In Alpharetta, 12 years ago, in my late 30’s, my first Seder, ever, was served and hosted by Rashi and Hirshy. I had no where to go and felt very sad, yet in a new shul. Among other 20-30 people in her house, I was invited and introduced to my own heritage. Ever since, I participate and organize Seders for my family and friends. Thank you for the light you brought to me, ignited in me and all of us. There are no words to express the sorrow we feel.

larger than life

As a close friend of Rashi through elementary, high school, seminary, and beyond, I can say that Rashi was truly larger than life. Rashi had a special spark and charm that endeared her to all. With her kindneess, warmth, and spunk, she was literally the life and energy of our class. Rashi was intelligent and wise beyond her years.
Rashi carried her responsibilities as mother and shlucha with a most positive attitude that was so inspiring.
The pain is deep. Very deep.
May Hashem comfort her husband, beautiful children, parents, and extended family.

We are so sad to hear of this terribly tragic news. The Hershey family are some of the most beautiful people we’ve ever met. When my father passed they were all there for us. They really comforted my family. I know how much the Rabbi loved her she was his/their rock. May Hashem comfort Rabbi Hershey and those beautiful children, grandparents and extended family throughout the world.
Our family has been blessed by only knowing her.

There isn’t any sense to be made of loss. There aren’t any words to capture the utter bewilderment we feel when tragedy arises. THIS cannot be the truth. I can only allow myself to think about this in an almost abstract way. This is real- yet, if I delve to deep I will be lost within tears, pain, and a darkness that isn’t simple to escape. We were 17; and my friends and I crammed to set up our summer plans. I knew Rashi because we were related, but not entirely then. We arrived in Alpharetta, GA, a group of… Read more »

We are heartbroken for you

My daughters have been involved with Chabad’s summer camp since they were toddlers. Their b’not mitzvah is this weekend and we will honor Rashi during the morner’s kaddish. We are so heartbroken over this news. Rashi has such a warm and welcoming spirit. She has been such a gift to our community and to the North Fulton Chabad family. May Hashem give her family strength and peace through such a tragic time.

Four years ago I had the merit of being a counselor by Rashi and Hirshy’s succesful camp. Being that I was in 11th grade the rule was that we had to stay at the Shluchim’s house. We arrived late Thursday night and there were over 3 huge pans of cookies n rugelach waiting for us, I think the hc’s baked them but the idea was not 1 of their own. I personally do not like staying at people’s homes for an extended period of time, but this home was different, very very different. This home was warm, welcoming, relaxed, filled… Read more »

It happened to me 28 years ago, we have always felt our mother praying for us. B”h we all have chassidishe homes.
Its a tough nissayon for the whole family. I can guarantee this: your mother will never leave you alone!!

I am absolutely devastated by this news. She was one of the favorite people I met in my (many, many) years as a camper and then a counselor at Silver Gan Israel Day Camp. I met Rashi during a time in my life when I was just beginning to grow in observance and she was there for me to tell me that it was okay that I didn’t have all the answers and that I should just continue to grow in my yiddishkeit at my own pace. I’ll never, ever forget her for that. May her memory truly be a… Read more »

I knew Rashi personally… This is so painful and upsetting. A few years ago I was visiting a friend over Pesach in Atlanta and she had both of us over every day during all of Pesach along with her extended family and members of the community. She opened her home completely to us and was so personable and extremely easy to talk to. She included us in her special time with her sisters and I remember clearly lounging out on her lawn, in the backyard just being so grateful to be in the home of such amazing warm shluchim.

A loss like this stands on its own. Young person, mother, wife, community leader, special soul… The world loses. Must mourn. But to connect dots from this to another tragedy is wrong on many counts: 1. minimizes this loss 2. minimizes whichever loss to which one chooses to draw a connecting line. 3. one should draw lines between dots of good/happy things to create patterns and leave the unhappy/tragic dots to stand on their own and be addressed individually.

We should be asking why. When a ship sinks, its the captains fault. When we see tragedy in Klal Yisroel, its time to reevaluate our leaders and wonder what they did to bring this tragedy to us. They need to self-evaluate and change their ways. They need to be held responsible.

She always used to say “If your hungry, eat. If you’re thirsty, drink, but don’t go around complaining.” She was truly the driving force of this wonderful community.

One amazing thing, amongst the many amazing things about Rashi… She made every person she knew, feel like they were the only one that mattered.
She housed many girls every summer, yet she made each one feel, like they were the only one.
There needs to be more people like Rashi in this word.
She helped me, in ways she didn’t even know.

Just 5 years ago I experienced a tragedy right before Purim that changed my life forever. From my experience: When Hashem gives someone a big test, the kind of test that anyone would agree is a “test”…it becomes a time when Hashem makes it possible to have a very high level of simcha. Since the test is beyond understanding and so hard to deal with, it becomes “easy” to throw your hands up and say “Hashem I need your help, big time!” This is when, at least for me, I was able to find simcha, and as a result Hashem… Read more »
