The granddaughter of the Puppa Rebbe, 22 year old Feige Greenwald, died suddenly today (Tuesday), Kikar Hashabbat reported. She was the daughter of the Rebbe’s son, Rav Pinchas Greenwald, who is the rabbi of the Monsey branch of the Hassidic community.
According to reports, Feigie was hospitalized in the past few days at Maimonides Hospital after suffering poisoning from an overdose of a dangerous drug.
In the last few years, Faigie had left her parental home and acted in a more modern manner than is generally acceptable in the hassidic community. She was active on social media and according to her friends’ reports she used dangerous drugs even though they tried to dissuade her.
On the “Kol Puppa” information hotline the broadcaster announced to the Hassidim : “Our heartbreak is as big as the ocean. Death has come to our halls. Blessed is the true Judge. With great pain, we announce the passing of the descendant of holy and pure people, the granddaughter of the Admor [hassidic Rebbe], the dear important maiden, Faige, daughter of rabbi Pinchas Chaim, Rabbi of our community in Monsey.”
“May we henceforth only hear good and comforting news.”
