Petirah Of Mrs. Lenka Klein A’H

We regret to inform you of the passing of Mrs. Lenka Klein A’H, who was Niftar today in Lakewood at the age of 90. Mrs. Klein, originally from Chicago, served as the cook in the Telz Yeshivah for many years. Due to her age, she relocated to Lakewood several years ago to be with her children R’ Moishe and R’ Lazer.

The Levaya will be taking place outside the 7th Street Chapel at 3:00 PM. There will be no Hespedim due to Chanukah.

Shivah information will be posted when available.

Baruch Dayan Ha’emes.

  1. I still remember her delicious chopped liver. She used to always let me sneak extra portions. In fact, she made sure I took doubles (and triples) if she felt I could use more nourishment. Her official title may have been cook but she was alot more than that.. she really cared about the bochurim.

  2. Any young homesick mechinah bochur appreciated Mrs Klein’s extra care and mesiras nefesh for the bochrim.The special foods she made at different times during the zman to enable the bochrim not to lack anything was very much appreciated. (almost as good as homemade! considering …) a fixture in the yeshiva dining room for so many many years…The only thank you she ever accepted was during the gramen at the Purim Seuda. mamesh the real deal from der alter heim.We simply dont have that kind any more.

  3. Mrs. Klein A”H always took care of each bochur. She knew who learned a little longer after davening and would put away rolls for that bochur. Being a survivor it hurt her to see food wasted and she was always extremely careful with the Yeshiva’s money. She made it a point to learn each bochur’s name and where they were from. Yehi zichra boruch

  4. The little I know about her as a grandson through my wife she was known to be special as a grandmother and a cook who cared for all the Bachurim in the yeshiva. She fed thousands of students and may she be remembered and appreciated, min hashamayim tenuchamu. What a special women!
