Body Of Missing Orthodox Mom Found In Hudson River

(JTA) — The body of a haredi Jewish mother from Monsey who had been reported missing was discovered in the Hudson River, near Bear Mountain Bridge in Upstate New York.

The body was discovered Wednesday and positively identified Thursday as that of Malky Lebowitz, nee Einhorn, the news site Crownheights Info reported. Lebowitz was married and the mother of a baby girl.

Formerly a member of the Satmar community, she reportedly left the community and moved to New City, a town neighboring Monsey.

Yossi Morgeretan, coordinator of Rockland Chaveirim, recovered the body. The report did not indicate the cause of death, which is the subject of an ongoing investigation.

The family and close friends have been notified.

The news site published a photograph of a smiling Lebowitz wearing a head cover favored by many haredi women while embracing a laughing baby and a rubber ball at what appears to be a play corner for children.
