A Message from Jeff
Sunday, I carried the coffin and helped fill the grave of my last remaining grandparent.  My father's mother died at the age of 98 on Simchat Torah.  She was the youngest and the last living of 11 children born in Rumania.  She lived those early years without running water or electricity.  She emigrated to this country, married, raised a family and at her death leaves behind 8 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.  Two of those grandchildren have made Israel their home.  Two work for the Jewish community.  Of course, as a Jewish grandmother, she’s probably most proud of all the lawyers and doctors.   All are Jewishly committed and connected.  What a legacy!   Keep Reading...
