Boruch Dayan Ho’emes: Mrs. Thirza Posner, 87, OBM

With sadness we inform you of the passing of Mrs. Thirza Posner, OBM, of Crown Heights, who merited – along with her husband R’ Yehuda Leib – to be the first couple for whom the Rebbe was Mesader Kidushin after he accepted the Nesius in 1951. She was 87 years old.

She is survived by her husband, Rabbi Yehudah Leib Posner, and children: Mrs. Channa Sonnenfeld (Nachlas Har Chabad, Israel), R’ Yosef Yitzchok Posner (Skokie, IL), R’ Uri Posner (Crown Heights), R’ Yechezkel Posner (Crown Heights), R’ Shmuel Posner (Boston, MA), Mrs. Brocho Sapochikinski (Westlake Village, CA), Mrs. Elisheva Mishulovin (Beitar Illit, Israel).

She is survived as well by her siblings and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

The Levaya will take place on Sunday, 14 Tishrei, beginning at 9:00am at Shomrei Hadas Chapels and passing by 770 at 10:00am.
