The Chai Times #70 //

Feb 10, 2023 11:31 pm


As thousands of Chabad Rebbetzins from all over the globe (including Mussy) gather in Brooklyn, they left their workshops and sessions to say a painful goodbye to one of their finest. Henya Federman, 40, devoted her life to locals and visitors on the Virgin Islands, and inspired thousands to spread goodness and kindness across the world.

On a personal note: I spent one Chanuka on S. Thomas helping the Federmans with their Chanukah activities and programs. Let me tell you, it was a real experience that influenced the way I approach big vision thinking about shlichus and the work to bring Moshaich.

There are no words to describe the heartbreak the news of her passing brought to us. So I won't try.

Vayidom Aharon.

Wishing you an uplifting Shabbat,

Rabbi Mendy & Mussy
