Sad News

memorial candleI just learned that Helene, a frequent commenter on a Mother in Israel, died last week in California after a long fight with cancer. I didn’t know her well, but always enjoyed Helene’s spicy comments about the joys and benefits of breastfeeding, cooking, and homeschooling. She loved Judaism and was immensely proud of her grown daughter.

I know that my readers join me in sending condolences to Helene’s family. May her memory be for a blessing.
