Mystery Woman Of Bais Rivkah

An old photo of the board of Bais Rivkah of Crown Heights includes a woman which "nobody seems to know who she is."

From the COLlive Inbox:

We are working hard on a detailed tribute to Reb Shimon Goldman a"h for the upcoming Shvat issue of the N'shei Chabad Newsletter.

As you surely know, Reb Goldman was very active in Bais Rivkah, in the 1970s and 1980s in particular.

We received this photo from Reb Shimon's children, but nobody seems to know who the woman is!

We would hate to go to print without her name.

The others in the photo are, L-R: Reb Gavriel Rubashkin, Reb Mottel Rivkin, Reb Shimon Goldman, and ybl"ch Reb Avraham Light.

Does anyone know who the woman is?

Please hurry and tell me, time is of the essence!

Let us know in the comments below or email rishe@nsheichabadnewsletter.com.

Thank you
Rishe Deitsch

Ask Gavriel Rubashkin or Avraham Light
Why don't you ask R' Gavriel Rubashkin? Or R' Avraham Light?
I would think that they would know.

Absolutely,
Liz Holtzman. In the 80's or 90's she had a complete makeover, different hairstyle etc., she rebranded her image before running for higher office (& lost) but in the 70's that's how she looked.

Oh for crying out loud
Yes, Liz Holtzman. No, she was not on the board. She was a sitting congresswoman and wanted to help Jewish schools and she met with the Bais Rivka board. Huge mystery....

That's how the women, young ladies and girls of Lubavitch should be dressing today.

n'shei issues corrections!
there should have been a sheyichye after Reb Gavriel's name
our apologies for that

and it's not Avrohom Light on the far right but Shmuel Light

Hensha
Rishe, I looked at the picture and before I looked down at the comments I thought it looks like Elizabeth Holtzman.. Insee that others agree with me also.
Many times in Lubavitch, pictures were taken with politicians.

Memories
In the late '70s, when the Women's Lib movement was in full force, I had a job on Capitol Hill, and in my office we used to joke that if you called her office, the receptionist would say, "Congressperson Holtzperson's office. May I help you?"
(I don't think it was true; 'just a fun joke!)
