Last wonderful memory from Florida

Posted by Kenny Gruber on May 19, 2023

Sending our deepest condolences to the family and entire community. We are deeply saddened to know Rabbi and Rebbetzin are both gone. They had a profound impact on the world and to know them was to love them. We are so grateful to have had that privilege.

I loved Nechi and was so happy when they moved to Rochester. We always had so much fun when we met, which of course wasn't often enough. The 2 of them would always visit my parents, the Beckers, when they came to Israel and it brought my parents such joy. I'll look for photos but now I just want to comfort the family and pray that the 2 of them are dancing together in Gan Eden...such a loss.

Rebittzin Nechhi gave real meaning and depth to the term “eshet chayil”. She with Rabbi raised children that any parent would gain nachas from. They worked together to give so much to Beth Sholem and also to make the Jewish Community of Rochester a vibrant, active Jewish community. May their memories be for a blessing to all of us and inspire us all to good deeds and love.

I was one of the "kids" in Little Rock who became frum because of Rabbi and Nechie. They were a second set of parents to me from the time I was 14 years old. Nechie was always there to talk to,--about anything--any time. She listened with a full heart. She never judged. Ever. She just loved. She offered her loving guidance. Us "Little Rockers" spent countless Shabbassim and countless hours in their home. We babysat Yosef, Shiffy & Tziporah so Rabbi and Nechie could get some time alone. Our loss was Rochester's gain. I say this often--I would not be here today if not for Rabbi and Nechie. Every Shabbos or yom tov candle I light, every bracha I make, every mitzvah I do...s'char goes directly to Rabbi and Nechie. They are together in Shamayim. But part of them will forever remain in our hearts.

Thinking of the family. Remembering the block parties which were so enjoyed by all of us. Your mother - always gracious. Athene

Only knew praises for both Rabbi Shaya and Nechie Kilimnick since my childhood. I am the daughter of her high school friend and college friend, Rivka. My mother always recalled fondly her multiple shabboses in the Wernick home and after in the company of her beloved friends, Rabbi Shaya and Nechie, a”h. Unbelievable friendship throughout the years. An honor to watch the bond as a second generation. Her smile and kindness will always be remembered.

A true Eshet Chayil. May her memory be for a blessing.

My most sincere condolences to all the Kilimnicks on your loss. Nechie was a superior person in all respects, who I greatly enjoyed knowing...both as a Hillel parent, and as a community member. She will NEVER be forgotten.
