Mrs. Yuta Hannah Rabinowitz o"h

By A. Cohen

A mournful crowd was on hand at the levaya on Erev Shabbos Chayei Soroh for Mrs. Yuta Hannah Rabinowitz o"h, the daughter of the Admor of Ozherov-Chanchin and the wife of HaRav Pinchos Eliyohu Rabinowitz, the son of the Admor of Biale-Peshischa, who passed away at a young age after great suffering and left behind her seven orphans.

The deceased was born 33 years ago in Tel Aviv into an illustrious home, where she acquired nobles traits, yiras Shomayim and mesirus nefesh for Yiddishkeit. Ever aspiring for a spiritual life filled with Torah, her friends nicknamed her the "Tzadekes."

Upon marrying Rav Pinchos Eliyohu Rabinowitz she dedicated herself to her husband and accepted a life of frugality to allow her husband to devote himself to Torah and avodas Hashem. She also carried the yoke of earning a living for her family by working as a teacher at a school in Yesodot.

Two years ago she fell sick with a terrible disease Rachmono litzlan. She bore her suffering stoically, hiding it from her family to avoid distressing them, and through extraordinary efforts continued the task of raising her children for Torah and yiras Shomayim and standing at her husband's side.

A few weeks ago her condition deteriorated and she had to be hospitalized until she returned her soul to her Maker late Thursday night on Erev Shabbos Parshas Chayei Soroh.

The levaya set out from the Ozherov beis medrash in Bnei Brak. The first of the eulogizers was her father, the Admor of Ozherov-Chanchin, followed by her father- in-law, the Admor of Biale-Peshischa.

The streets were packed with people accompanying the mittoh as it proceeded past the Biale-Peshischa beis medrash to Ponovezh Cemetery, where she was buried near her grandfather, the Admor of Ozherov- Chanchin.

Following stimas hagolel her bereaved husband spoke about his late wife's strong qualities and her steadfast emunah despite the suffering she underwent.

Mrs. Yuta Channah Rabinowitz o"h is survived by her parents and grandparents, her husband, brothers and sisters and seven children ranging in age from two to twelve. Based on instructions issued by rabbonim a special fund has been set up by Kupat Ha'ir Bnei Brak (#1080) to help keep the family functioning.
