The Matusof legacy lives on: The namesake of Mrs. Pessia Matusof, a Chabad Shlucha in Morocco who dedicated her life to helping and educating Jews, is being remembered by her descendants.
In the last few days, 3 Matusof cousins gave birth to baby girls one after the other.
On Yud Shvat, a girl was born to R’ Tanchoum and Chani Matusof (nee Raskin) of Monaco.
On Yud Aleph Shvat, a girl was born to R’ Arele and Chaya Matusof of Calgary, Canada.
And today on Yud Bais Shvat, a girl was born to Eliezer and Chaya Mushka Ashkenazi (nee Matusof) of Tzfat, Israel.
Since they were the first girls born in the family after the passing of Mrs. Matusof 3 months ago at the age of 86, needless to say, all 3 newborn babies were named after her.
“The names and timing are very fitting, as Pessia Matusof was the first shlucha of the Rebbe, whose nesius began on Yud Shvat,” a member of the family noted to COLlive.com.
