    With sadness we inform you of the passing of Mrs. Tzivia Bravman, OBM, a survivor of Stalin’s USSR who helped the Rebbe’s father during his exile in Kazakhstan and a veteran member of the Kfar Chabad community since 1951. She was 90 years old.

    Tzivia was born in 1924 to Reb Yaakov and Mrs. Droiza Raskin, OBM, in Bobroisk, today in Belarus. In her youth, the family moved to S. Petersburg (Leningrad), where – despite the hardships of those days – her parents raised her in a Chassidishe atmosphere.

    When WWII broke out, her family fled to Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan. It was there that she, along with her parents and brothers, provided aid to the Rebbe’s father, Reb Levik Schneerson, OBM, who was exiled there.

    Towards the end of the war, she married Reb Dovid Bravman, a top student in Tomchei Temimim. Shortly after the war, they escaped the USSR via Poland, and ended up in a DP Camp in Germany. In the camp, at the behest of the Frierdiker Rebbe and the Rebbe, they assisted their fellow Jews to the best of their ability, and printed several Seforim on Chassidus.

    In 1951, they moved to Eretz Yisroel, settling in Kfar Chabad.

    Her husband, Reb Dovid, died tragically from an illness in 1959, leaving the young widow to fend for herself and her children. Despite these personal hardships, she continued to diligently raise her children in the ways of Chassidus, and educated countless girls in the Beis Rivkah educational institute in Kfar Chabad.

    She is predeceased by her eldest daughter, Rochel Leah, OBM, wife of Reb Yehoshua Mondshine, OBM.

    She is survived by her remaining children: Mrs. Tova Elroy, Mrs. Shterna Ginsberg (Omer, Israel), Mrs. Rivka Gurary (Chulon, Israel) and Mrs. Chava Sosover (Crown Heights), along with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    The Levaya took place Wednesday afternoon in Kfar Chabad, after which she was buried on Har Hazeisim in Jerusalem.
