Petirah of Holocaust survivor Mrs. Chaya Resmovitz A”H

candleWe regret to inform you of the Petirah of Mrs.┬áMora Chaya (Chayku) Rezmowitz A”H, who was Niftar last night In Lakewood.

Mrs. Rezmowitz A”H was a holocaust survivor and a veteran of many concentration camps, with no surviving relatives. She served as a kindergarten teacher in Bais Yakov of Boro Park for about 50 years.

She was known to always be upbeat and full of emuna, always looking at the positive in life.

Unfortunately she was never Zoche to have children of her own, but she had the zchus to be the mother and teacher of thousands.

The Levaya will be taking place at 12:30 pm at the 7th Street Chapel.

  1. She was a woman who went through Aushwitz and lived through the worst Gehenom. She has practically no family, and we grew up with her in Boro Park. She dedicated her life to her students. This is a real Mais Mitzvah, and if you can please attend.

  2. Oy bde ! I remember her from years back she used to eat by us when we were young. Always farginef even though she herself had nothing .
    interesting to note she always gave brochos which almost always came to fruition.
    I believe it would be a big zechus and Teawgue for anyone who would attend levaya.
    may she be a malitz Yoshar for all

  3. I attended bybp and later on I worked there. At one point,morah chaya (as she was fondly known) worked alongside me in the resource room. She was always shining, smiling, offering a kind word. Very positive memories of her. May her neshama have an aliya

  4. I just want to point out that although she didn’t have any immediate relatives she had many devoted cousins or nieces & nephews (not sure of their exact relationship) who took care of her for years as if she would have been their own mother. She will be missed. BD”E

  5. Chayku was a lady who had many yissurim and did not have it easy in life. There is no one that can remember her ever kvetching or complaining. Something we can all learn from!
