Baruch Dayan Haemes: In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, yesterday (Wednesday) Rebbetzin Esther Miriam Eichenstein, wife of the Galanter Rebbe passed away at the age of 63.
She recently contracted a malignant disease and was hospitalized. She had successful surgery, but then suffered from kidney disease.
Galanter Chassidim davened for her Refuah Shleima throughout her illness, but she returned her soul to its Maker.
Throughout her life she stood alongside her husband the Rebbe, and leader of his Chassidim in Williamsburg. The home of the Rebbe and his Rebbetzin was always open to Hachnosas Orchim and she accepted everyone wholeheartedly.
She left her husband and eight children after her.
Her funeral will leave on Thursday from the Galanter Beis Medrash in Williamsburg.
