I can not believe I am sitting here and typing this! Rivka!!! This is so heartbreaking! You were always a warrior! You were such a fighter! You inspired anyone around you, and your listening ear was just the best! I remember coming to Westchester to watch your kids for a Shabbos, and your community loved you so much! It didn’t matter where we were. In Baltimore for Shabbos for Yudele’s Bar mitzvah, the attitude was the same. There were so many people who used to tell me that they knew you from Rio. You started your yarn business so Mendel… Read more »

This is unreal..the Baltimore community and beyond is heartbroken. You always had a smile and a kind word. You were so full of life. We are still in shock that you are in the next world. Please be a maylitz yoshar. We want to dance by Channies wedding and tell Hashem for us Moshiach now so we can all be reunited.

We love you Rivka and already miss you!

We have lost a warm and caring aunt, and the world has lost a brilliant and loving woman.

Please Hashem Bring This Family Some Peace and Joy

Rivka was a force who blazed a trail for so many of her fellow yidden with her immense knowledge and exceptional talents. This family has had to endure so much pain, yet they carried a smile and inspired ‘chayus’ and determination to so many whom they engaged. Now they have lost Rivka. Please Hashem bring them healing and brochos of joy, so that may not know of pain any longer. We wish all of them and each of them individually, healing and happiness. May you be comforted and quickly have only good news to share. המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר… Read more »

Rivkah we are all mourning for you. We lost a very wonderful kind smart and gracious family member. You left us too early, we are all in tears. I still can’t believe you are not with us. We all love you and feel for your husband Mendel, Chana and Yehudale. It’s not fair! why why? From your place in Gan Aden together with your family and friends storm the heavens to send Moshiach NOW!!! It’s hard to imagine a world without you. You’ll be always in our heart. To the rest of the family there are no words to describe… Read more »

Rivka was a dear aunt, warm and caring with a smile on her face
She was a teacher of chassidus, a real belief and Moshiach and loved of knitting

She cared deeply for another and made you feel at ease when you talked to her
She invested in the other and helped her husband in his Mivtzoyim

May she be a Meilitz Yosher for the whole family
We are thinking of you chanale, Yudele and Uncle Mendel

Wish I had taken more time to learn with her . She was only around the block from me . The community has lost an erudite, eishes chayil . It was a big zechus to our community and our shul to have her . She was niftar on Shabbat. Nice to know you took the time to post . Seems we have a Baltimore-Beitar connection other than my son Rocky !
