An Example For The Generation: Rebbitzen Ruchoma Shain A”H; Video of Levaya

[VIDEO OF LEVAYA] By: Aaron Joseph. When Shifra and Puah did not listen to what the King of Mitrayim asked of them, Hashem repaid their Emunah as the Posik says: Vayas Lohem Botim. In the era of Reb Yaakov Yosef Herman, the American freedom was making demands from every Jewish Neshoma. One man and his household withstood that test of the time, and how surely they have been rewarded by Hashem: Vayas Lohem Botim.

Rebitzen Rochoma Shain A”H epitomized simple, special Emunah in Hashem and an always abiding Rotzon to do His will. Captured in her ever famous and captivating historical essay entitled “All For the Boss”, Rebitzen Shain recalls and so vividly depicts that special Torah lifestyle which enraptured her childhood and stood her in firm stead throughout her life. The Chinuch of her great father, Reb Yaakov Yosef Herman ZT”L, not only shaped her outlook, but completely formulated an entire Mishapacha which today, 6 and 7 generations later are all Bnei Torah, and then some. Hashem pays back. Vayas Lohem Botim.

While I merited meeting the Rebitzen but once, and being young enough to be her grandson, I cannot say I know much about her firsthand. However, the obvious dedication to her own Kibud Av Vaim, which is illuminated for all to witness through her writing the momentous book about her parents, and of course by the stories and adventures therein contained, speaks volumes of her giant spirit. Of course the fact the this book was written so that her descendants (and all of Klal Yisroel) can learn from the giant lessons her parents portrayed, and which she obviously treasured, communicates the ever serious responsibility Rebitzen Shain A”H committed to Chinuch Habonim, her own, and all of us as well.

The Torah house established by Reb Yaakov Yosef Herman ZT”L and continued and built upon by his children, stands today in splendor amongst Klal Yisroel. How fortunate are we that Reb Yaakov Yosef Herman ZT”L made the sacrifices that he did 100 years ago, and that his children, each, followed and glorified his selfless examples. We, Klal Yisroel are lucky to have merited that his daughter, Rebitzen Rochoma Shain A”H wrote “All for the Boss” as a testimonial, and indoctrinated generations with it.

May this very special Neshoma, a matriarch in her own right, be a Maylitz Yosher for her special mishpacha, and may the Shain Mishpacha (Sh’mo Kach Hu!) find comfort in knowing that the world is a far better place today because of the examples and sacrifices Rebitzen Shain A”H made for her family and for all of us.
