Mazal tov to Mori & Micah Karasov on the birth of a daughter last Monday! Mazal tov to big sister Rowan, as well to grandparents Bob Karasov & Hanna Bloomfield and Shayne Karasov. May the child grow in health, happiness and love of Yiddishkeit surrounded by loving family and community.
Thank you to to Meredith Anderson; Lili Garfinkel; Raleigh Kent; Jacob, Toby, and Wendy Khabie; and Sharon Rosenblum for all your help in getting the baskets prepared and filled! A special thanks to Lili Garfinkel and Leah Golberstein for their work on the beautiful cookbooks that are included in each basket (and thanks to all of you who submitted the delicious recipes!). Thanks to Yonit Krebs for her beautiful cover art design of the cookbook booklet! Thank you Meredith Anderson and Leah Golberstein for your editing and artistic assistance with the Yehi Ratzon laminated cards. Thank you to our delivery drivers: Meredith Anderson, Howie Israelson, Annette Walder, Leigh Deschamps, Anne-Monique Rapoport, Naomi Oxman, Mashall Mintz and Rob Portnoe.
We hope you enjoy all of the treats, which were made possible, in part, by generous sponsors. Thank you Lili and Barry Garfinkel and Leah Golberstein, as well as an anonymous donor, for your generous contributions.
We still have sponsorship opportunities available, so if you would like to pay tribute to someone special, this would be a nice way and a great time to start off the new year! Please contact Rafi Geretz for more information about this and future opportunities.
