It is with profound sadness that we inform you of the passing of Rebbetzin Gita Cohen ע״ה, wife of the founding Dean of VTHS, Rabbi Shaya Cohen, עמו״ש.

The levaya will take place Sunday at 1:00 PM EST

The Kevura will take place in Eretz Yisrael.

Update (4:00 PM PST): The aron is scheduled to arrive in Eretz Yisroel early Monday afternoon. The levaya will begin at 2:30 PM (approximately) from Shamgar and head to Her HaZeisim.

Shiva information: The daughters have already begun sitting shiva at 520 Seagirt Blvd, Far Rockaway. Rabbi Shaya Cohen and his sons will be sitting shiva through Monday evening in Israel at the Plachinsky home (Rechov Rabbi Aryeh 1). They will then return to continue Shiva in Far Rockaway. More information to follow.

May the family be comforted amongst the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.
