An evening marking the fourth yartzeit of Mrs. Gitta Gansburg will take place on Wednesday, Vov Kislev/November 14. The event, beginning at 8:00 pm, will be held at Mrs. Gansburg’s home for 38 years, the dormitory at 1367 President Street.
During one of the Rebbe’s visits to the dormitory on the first night of Pesach, the Rebbe told Mrs. Gansburg, “Thank you for raising my daughters.”
Mrs. Gansburg devoted nearly four decades of her life to “raising the Rebbe’s daughters.” In this capacity she worked together with her husband, famed chasid Rabbi Yitzchok (“Itchke”) Gansburg.
The event, “Five Minutes with Mrs. Gansburg” will feature 8 people who knew Mrs. Gansburg in different ways and at different times of her life. They will each share a teaching, memory of life-lesson from Mrs. Gansburg for five minutes. The featured speakers are Rabbi Shloma Majeski, dean of Machon L’Yahadus, Mrs. Rivka Chitrik, who grew up with Mrs. Gansburg in Tel Aviv, Brocha Eisenbach and Hadas Tewel who were madrichos in the dorm, Shira Wasjbort, Tzippy Gajer and Miriam Lipchik who were students, and Mendy Chanin, her grandson.
This year’s Machon L’Yahadus students hail from all over the United States as well as from Canada, Israel, Brazil, France, Papua New Guinea, Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.
The event will be broadcast on FB live on the Machon L’Yahadus facebook page @womensyeshiva.
