AMAZING WOMAN
May 17, 2015 8:22 pm

I knew Rebbetzin Simpson because her husband Rabbi Simpson (may he be healthy and prosperous for many years to come) was kind enough to invite me over his home for Shabbos meals. I attended the Brighton Beach shul from 2007-2010 and was privileged to have been over the Simpson home. Rebbetzin Simpson was so sweet and hospitable.

A true chasidiste. Before Shlichus became popular, she taught by example what it meant to be totally ibbergegeben to the Rebbe and to all that was dear to him. An amazing eizer kenegdo to her dear husband (tzu lange gezunte yohrin) she exemplified what it meant to be a Lubavitcher Rebbetzin, reaching out to all Yidden in Brighton Beach with her boundless love, her radiant smile, her infectious optimism, her sense of humor.
