    Four of her children live in Moscow, and one daughter lives in Israel.

    May her memory be for a blessing. Words cannot adequately describe her mesirut nefesh, strength and commitment. She was a beautiful person, in all ways.

    rabbi kogan is the head of chaddius chabad in russia appointed by the rebbe.
    four of his children live in russia one in israel.
    the title of taddik of leningrad came from the fact that he appeared to have ruach akodesh.
    he and his wife were partners in helping change the face of russia.
    when they came out they spent close to three hours in yahiddus with the rebbe..
