Bat Sheva Chaya Esther Mikvah Celebrates 21 Years

(Courtesy of Bris Avrohom) On Sunday, March 17, over 150 women gathered to commemorate the 21st yahrzeit of Bat Sheva Kanelsky, ob’’m.

The inspiring program began with two chapters of tehillim recited by Rebbetzin Shterney Kanelsky in honor of the Rebbe and Rebbetzin and for the well-being of the soldiers in Israel and the swift return of the hostages.

A lavish brunch was served, and people had the opportunity to support the beautiful mikvah.

Sarah Encaoua Guigue, social media influencer, was the emcee of the event. The keynote speaker, Chanie Krasnianski, co-director of Chabad Upper East Side, spoke passionately of fortifying our homes from the inside out in response to the attack on our homeland. She spoke of the importance and beauty of the mitzvah that God gave women.

Nechy Abraham, a surprise speaker, shared her personal story of longing for children and the blessings of God of her three healthy children born thanks to the Bat Sheva Chaya Esther Mikvah.

Rebbetzin Kanelsky spoke about how Bat Sheva was a catalyst for countless mitzvot that people took upon themselves in her merit and keep until today. In her 65 days of life she accomplished more than many people attempt to accomplish in a lifetime.

Rabbi Mordechai Kanelsky shared one incident regarding a nurse in the hospital who cared for Bat Sheva, and whose life was altered when she agreed to light Shabbat candles in her merit. He then encouraged all those present to take a box of candles which were distributed at the event and to try to persuade others to light candles as well. As we are promised by our prophets,” אם אתם משׁמרים נרות שׁל שׁבת אני מראה לכם נרות שׁל ציון,” “If you keep the mitzvah of lighting Shabbat candles, I (God) will show you the candles of Zion.” May we merit the coming of Moshiach Tzidkeinu speedily in our days.
