I miss Zelda, we used to seat together on the gallery in Lubavitch House and she showed me where are we up to if I have got lost in Siddur or Parsha. Her support and understanding were unconditional. I wish to see her and Reb Meishe again soon when our King Moshiach will
come! I feel for her children and grandchildren! BDE!

A really special woman. An example of a true Aishes Chayil. Warm, welcoming, caring…. and together with Reb Moishke, built a home and family of true Yiddishkeit and eidelkeit. Together and individually, they left big imprints on the Stamford Hill and wider communities.
To their children:
המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים.

Great loss.

As a seminary girl in Beih Rivkah Yerres, France, I once spent a weekend with this very special family as I was visiting London with a friend. Mrs. Katzenelenbogen could not have been more welcoming and kind to us. I have such fond memories of her preparing breakfast for us in the morning, and marking all the sights she felt we should visit on a huge map! She was concerned that we had enough money, and food to last us through our sightseeing day and made sure we were ok before we left her house every single morning.
