Rebbetzin Shterna Wolff’s husband passed away suddenly in 2020, leaving her with 8 children and a Chabad Center to care for. She resolved to carry on her husband’s work in Hanover, Germany, and her remarkable commitment got her hailed as “Person of the Year,” in a local journal.

With 8,700 votes in, Lower Saxony newspaper Rundblick Niedersachsen honored Wolff with the top honor for her “commitment to maintaining Jewish customs and culture in Lower Saxony.” She now heads Hanover’s Chabad Center, with Rabbi Levi and Mussi Gotlieb.
