Rebbetzin Batsheva Kanievsky a”h, daughter of an extraordinary and illustrious Torah family, was one of the most remarkable, selfless, and beloved women of our time. Thousands of people — Sephardim and Ashkenazim, Torah-observant, traditional, and even non-religious Jews — came to ask for her blessing, her wise counsel, her heartfelt encouragement. Everyone was welcome and everyone went away enriched.
This extraordinary biography is a warm and moving account of Rebbetzin Kanievsky’s simple, down-to-earth greatness. In story after fascinating story we meet a child, a young woman, a wife, mother, grandmother and world-renowned personality who dedicated her life to ahavas Yisrael, ahavas Torah, and endless chessed.
Written with the blessing and cooperation of Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlita and based on interviews with him and his family, The Jaffa Edition Rebbetzin Kanievsky: A Legendary Mother to All includes hundreds of pictures, including private, never-before-published family photos and documents.
