BDE: Mrs. Itta Shoshana Tyberg, a”h
by YS Gold
We regret to inform you of the passing of Mrs. Tyberg, a true vestige of the prewar world who established beautiful generations in Boro Park. She was 98 years of age.
The nifteres was born in Lublin, Poland. Her father was Pinchas Selig Freidenberg, an ardent Modzitzer chossid, and an einikel of the Koznitzer Maggid.
Her parents took the family to Eretz Yisroel shortly before the war, and were thus fortunate to survive the Churban.
She married Reb Tzvi Yaakov Tyberg, a nephew of the Aleksander Rebbe, who hailed from a family which was one of the most prominent in the Aleksander chassidus, which numbered in the tens of thousands before the war.
Reb Tzvi Yaakov worked in diamonds, but his true endeavor was in diamonds of another kind—spending every spare moment learning Torah. After marrying off their children in America, they moved to Eretz Yisroel for about 25 years.
There, he was an admired figure in the Aleksander chassidus, and would deliver a shiur there, learning from morning to night.
The nifteres was a supremely dedicated eishes chayil, standing beside her husband in his avodas hakodesh, and was extremely dedicated to her family.
“She was a true representative of the previous generation,” recalled a grandson. “She didn’t need much for herself, and was always there to give to others.”
When Reb Tzvi Yaakov was unwell, the Tyberg’s moved back to the states, and Mrs. Tyberg lived out her remaining years in Boro Park surrounded by family, and she was niftar early Wednesday morning.
The Levaya will take place at 5:30 this afternoon at Shomrei Hadas.
Yehi zichra baruch.
