A Tribute To My Beloved Rebitzen, Lillian Chomsky


Shalom, My Dear Rebitzen Layahle

Shalom my beautiful Rebitzen Layahle, a”h, so sweet and dear

Heavenly angels are surely greeting you, from far and near.

An exemplary life you did lead

Leaving us a wonderful heritage in word and deed.

Outstanding was your friendly and kind smile

Making our lives ever more worthwhile.

Many have done valiantly and stand tall

Your smooth grace and humility excels them all.

Divine inspiration was your constant guide

Experiencing religious life with joyful pride.

Arare treasure in many ways

Resulting in many brighter and blessed days.

Reviewing your wonderful life in brief

Enables us better to endure our grief.

Born in poverty on the Lower East Side

It’s amazing how you rose to give us such pride.

Transplanting luxury for vital need

Zeal and courage led to many a good deed.

Exceptional mom, grandma, wife and community leader

No one could have been more generous and sweeter.

Looking at all the good for family and community you’ve done

Asecure place in Olam HaZeh and Olam HaBa you’ve surely won.

Your premature departure can cause resentment

As we look back, however, we’re filled with quiet contentment.

How much we miss you, no one else can fully appreciate

Losing you, all the world’s riches cannot compensate.

Enter your heavenly dwelling place in peace.

May your intervention help our blessings increase!
