    Daily Positive Doses in Memory of Chavi

    Along with opening your hearts and wallets for this most worthy cause, here’s an additional, meaningful way to remember Chavi obm. 🌷Be a source of encouragement to others🌷. I don’t mean pat, dismissive comments like “You look good, nice seeing you.” Genuine, thought out, uplifting messages that one can walk away with – feeling like a more valuable human being, feeling hopeful, feeling important or special. It doesn’t require that much thought or effort and it goes a long way. I just practiced it myself in a pizza shop. Observed a rambunctious bunch of kids being juggled by exhausted parents.… Read more »

    Chavi and her family lived acrossthecstreet from me she was a kind girl who lived in a time where not much was known to help her she was in my home on Shabbos after high school she drew me a picture and a kind note I still have a picture she gave me her parents who are no longer with us will be so proud. She and her brother meant everything to them thank you for this wonderful program

    It is so easy to talk, to mourn, to sigh and continue with our routine lives after a tragedy. Twenty five years have passed, it would be so easy to forget. Twenty five years within which people would give a sigh when someone mentioned Chavi’s name.
    Now you see, alumni of Beth Rivkah, I am so proud of what you are doing. No doubt, Chavi is smiling down at you and saying
    “kol hakovod”

    So many kind words are written here, I wish you all good luck with this project and hope you are able to help those who are in need. I knew Chavi, but not well, I saw her as a nice friendly girl. I did know her parents well, they were the kindest people! I’m sure they are smiling down at this new project.

    I knew Chavie as a neighbor

    and she seemed very special! It is so thoughtful and kind of you to organize something in her memory. The only point I think would be very helpful to have in mind is, that it is usually the girls who leave others out, who have issues with low self esteem. Someone secure will often be inclusive, even to the socially awkward type. Perhaps, it would be a good idea, to give the girls in the cliques sessions on self esteem.
