It’s always thrilling to report happy
occasions from the
Rubin-Zeffren Children’s Home. This month we have the pleasure to share two
wonderfully joyous events and we know that as friends, you will be as excited
as we are.
Malkie G.’s Engagement
Living in the Home for virtually a
decade, Malkie G. has
made great strides in so many ways. She is a responsible young woman who has
always made new girls feel at home from their first days. She is organized,
sharp and witty, and just knows what to say and do at the right time.
Malkie, who was introduced to a fine
young man by Sassia,
a member of our staff, has recently become engaged and will be marrying before
this Rosh Ha Shanna 5774. She has been studying the art of fancy food
decoration and catering design at a specialty school. She is also very adept at
pastry art and can often be found setting up at our own girls’ birthdays and
Bat Mitzvah celebrations. Her husband-to-be works in the field of electronics.
We all wish Malkie and her groom Mazel
Tov for a long and happy life together. Although we will miss her feisty
spirit, we know she is mature, ready and well prepared for this major milestone
in life. We look forward to her visits and we’re sure she will come to say
“Hello” to her housemates and the staff and administration in the future.
It’s a Girl!!!
Yocheved Weitzman, the Home’s
Housemother, gave birth to a baby girl during the Passover holiday. She is currently on maternity leave
for three months. Our girls are fortunate to have the Home’s director of
Activities, Elinor Gabay, who lives closely, to be ‘on duty’ every Shabbat
during Yocheved’s time off. Elinor and her husband and two young children are
beloved by the girls who are so glad to see her an extra day each week.
We wish Yocheved and her family Mazel
Tov on her new
addition and convey our greetings for her and her newborn’s good health.
