Over the years Miryam has been there for us, both as a group and as individuals. Eshel is organizing meals for Miriyam and her sister and their families for next Shabbat.

Many of you have asked what would be helpful to Miryam and her family during shiva. Rabbi Steve Greenberg, Board Chair Shlomo Ashkinazy, and I divided up the sponsorship into three sets; each meal will be from a different group with whom Miryam works closely. We, the parents, will sponsor Friday night dinner, the Eshel Board will provide lunch, and the parent programming committee will sponsor Seudah Shlishit.

If you would like to participate, please submit the form by Thursday midday, so that we can include your name on the card. If we collect more than the cost of the dinner, the difference will be given to Eshel as a donation in memory of Dr. Kabakow, z”l..

Many of us got to know Dr. Kabakow at the Parent Retreats. In his quiet, wise, kind, and non-judgemental way he was a role model of acceptance and love for our community of parents. We will miss him.
