I caught an article at the Yated which describes the special characters of the young women who were niftar in a car accident in Arizona last week. Below is part of a description of Hindy Spira, a'h.
One of her fellow teachers at the school is Mrs. Bas-sheva Alpert, whose daughter, Chaya Malka bas Bas-sheva, is in need of a refuah shleimah. Hindy was constantly trying to think of programs and undertakings as a zechus for Mrs. Alpert’s daughter.
On Monday, the day of her petirah, it was Hindy herself, despite being on vacation on the West Coast, who recorded a message on the “Ki Chol Peh Lecha Yodeh” contest hotline. The contest was established as a zechus for Chaya Malka bas Bas-sheva, with prizes awarded to the youngsters who participate. Listening to the message, one could hear the joy for life that Hindy personified. In her message, recorded shortly before her petirah, Hindy says, “Let’s hope to share besuros tovos very shortly.” Her voice is rich with simchah and her upbeat persona is almost tangible.
Hindy would regularly tell Mrs. Alpert that she’d like to do more for her daughter, and she endeavored to come up with initiatives as a zechus for Chaya Malka bas Bas-sheva. When she was in Florida, Hindy called Mrs. Alpert to obtain copies of the hilchos Shabbos sheets that are published as a zechus for Chaya Malka so that she could place them in the local shuls. With Hindy, every moment was utilized to help others and consider their needs.
How about emailing LearnShabbos@gmail.com with a subject line I would like to receive Hilchos Shabbos.
