Rebbetzin Shelia's untimely passing left a tremendous void wherever her presence had been felt. She was the epitome of an אשת חיל, a true woman of valor. Her ability to get things done with grace and aplomb was well known to all those familiar with her. She knew what was important, and ensured that those around her were aware as well. This void is strongly felt here at Kollel Hora'ah of America. Not only was she the wife of our Rabbinic adviser יבלח''ט HaRav Reuven Feinstein Shlit"a, and grandmother of our Rosh Kollel, HaRav Mordechai Eisenberg Shlit"a, she was a driving force as well, To her it was a priority, not just that Yungeleit have the ability to grow in an environment suited for growth. She felt that it was imperative that they receive the tools to lead others, to motivate others, to inspire others, just as she did. Rebbetzin Feinstein was not merely the "Bubby" of the Kollel, she made it happen. No task was considered too degrading, she spent hours contacting people on behalf of the Kollel. She gave freely of her time, always making herself available for the Kollel. As an educator herself, her advice was consistently on target, truly enabling the Kollel to grow and flourish. The success of the Kollel was and is in no small part due to her. The pride Rebbetzin Shelia felt from the Kollel's accomplishments was evident to all those who knew her. She proudly presided over our inaugural Chag Smicha, expressed her wishes to attend many more such celebrations of accomplishment. Alas, this was not to be, the Chag Semicha was from the last public events attended by the Rebbetzin prior to her passing.


In recognition of her dedication to the Kollel, generous donors have suggested, as a fitting tribute to her, to dedicate our upcoming Charidy campaign in her memory. KHA was a tremendous source of pride to the Rebbetzin, and we are proud to be a part of her legacy.


Your generous donation will have the triple impact of perpetuating her legacy, supporting this Torah institution which was close to her heart, and bringing comfort to her family.

Thank You!
