BD’E — Mrs. Tzippy Diamond, A”h

Hamodia is saddened to report the petirah of Mrs. Tzippy Diamond, a”h, who was niftar on Wednesday afternoon after an extended illness.

Mrs. Diamond was the daughter of Reb Shlomo, z”l, and ybl”c Leah Scharf, shetichyeh of the West Side and the wife of ybl”c Dr. David Diamond and mother of Dr. Tzvi Diamond.

She was a unique and incredible individual who taught Torah to hundreds of people while delivering a shiur on Chumash which she began during the Covid epidemic. “Each week, she picked a topic from the parashah and in her own inimitable way she taught how we can can learn from it and apply the lessons to our own lives, which left a lasting impact,” a friend told Hamodia. “She had a tremendous love and knowledge of Torah, quoting sources from all over, and we all listened intently as we absorbed her words as she described how we can emulate the deeds of Sarah Imeinu, Esther Hamalka and other tzaddikim and tzidkaniyos.

“Her house was open for guests, as she hosted many people of various backgrounds, and they were all welcomed warmly and left uplifted through her smile. She always had a kind word for everyone, and she was a pillar of her community and a treasure for Klal Yisrael. Her avodas Hashem, her davening, her middos, her bein adam laHashem and bein adam lachaveiro were incredible.”

Mrs. Diamond was involved in numerous tzeddakah and chessed projects, including producing an audio recording of Tehillim for people who were unable to read for themselves and countless other projects where she used her abundant talent to do for others.

When she took ill, she accepted her suffering be’ahavah, and kept her ever-present smile, never showing that she was sick nor complaining about how she was feeling. Her many friends and acquaintances who knew about her condition were constantly davening for her recovery. During the last five months, when her home was set up like a hospital room, they recited Tehillim round the clock. At her passing, a close friend said, “There are no words to convey the pain we felt or our feelings of loss.”

Mrs. Tzippy Diamond was a dedicated daughter to her parents, a devoted wife to her husband, and a loving mother to her son and grandchildren.

Her levayah took place Wednesday evening at Plaza Jewish Community Chapel in Manhattan.
