BDE: Rebbetzin Sima Horowitz, Shotzer Rebbetzin, a”h
We are saddened to inform you of the passing of the Shotzer Rebbetzin, a" h. She was 89 years old and leaves behind an incredible legacy.
The Rebbetzin was the daughter of the legendary Reb Usher Yonah Weinberger of Temeshvar, who famously survived the war along with his wife and thirteen children. A photograph exists of the Weinberger family in front of the ship that brought them to America, where they would settle and perpetuate an incredible legacy.
In her father's home, the Sima absorbed Torah and kedusha, for Rav Usher Yonah was known for all of this. He was close to many tzaddikim of the generation, and they accorded him much honor on account of his stature.
The Rebbetzin married Rav Meir Horowitz, a scion of the Shotzer dynasty. The Rebbe opened a shtiebel in Boro Park and owned the famed Shotzer Matzah Bakery on Cortelyou Road in Kensington.
The Rebbetzin was known for her refined ways and chessed to all.
The levaya will take place this afternoon in Williamsburg.
