This effort is dedicated to the memory of my late wife Malka. A Holocaust survivor (the only one of her extended family) she spent over three years in a forced labor camp suffering hunger and sickness, leaving her on the verge of death. She emerged with a zeal for life, a dedication to do good and with a boundless love and admiration for children. She turned this drive into a vocation, becoming a teacher dedicated to “helping children grow” for over thirty years.
Her dedication to “taharat ha-lashon,” a way of speaking that avoids all derogatory references, and her relentless struggle against hate permeated her entire life.
G-d bless her memory.
