With great sadness we inform you of the passing of Mrs. Chaya Landa, OB”M, a longtime resident of Boro Park and more recently of Crown Heights who survived the holocaust. She was 94 years old.
Mrs. Landa was born in Hungary, and her father Rabbi Yitzchok Klein emigrated to the United States, leaving his wife and children behind so they could receive a proper Jewish education.
Initially, Mrs. Landa was placed in the Auschwitz concentration camp but was transferred just a few weeks later to the Bergen-Belsen camp where she remained for the rest of the war.
She and her sister were liberated in 1945 and taken to Displaced Persons camps before immigrating to the United States and being reunited with their father. Later they discovered that their brother, Reb Yiddel Klein survived the holocaust as well – he passed away in 2016.
She married Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Landa and they settled in Boro Park, where they lived until about 10 years ago.
She is survived by her husband Rabbi Avraham Tzvi Landa, and their children Yehuda Landa – New Jersey; Yisrael Dovid Landa – Crown Heights; Yosef Landa -St. Louise, MO; and Rivky Kirsh – Crown Heights.
She is also survived by her sister Mrs. Golda Hager of Boro Park.
The Levaya will take place today, at around 1:30 at Shomrei Hadas and passing by 770 at around 2:30.
