Dear COLlive readers,
N’shei Chabad Newsletter has a mystery perhaps you can help solve. So far, COLlive readers have never let me down. So here it is:
I received an email from Lieba Gordon Handler, a professor at Long Island University. A woman walked past her office recently and they started to chat. When the woman found out that Lieba is a Lubavitcher, she began to share the story of how the Rebbe influenced her to become frum as a young girl.
She and her sister, from Queens, went to the URJ Eisner Camp in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, which is affiliated with the Reform movement.
It was approximately 1969 and she remembers two twin sisters from Crown Heights – around the age of 19, both tall with blond hair — coming to visit the camp.
She remembers them being so loving and inspiring and she was moved to have a bas mitzvah and later to attend a few Shabbatons in Crown Heights.
She and her sister did not stay at the twins’ home but it was arranged by them. She and her sister saw the Rebbe and were deeply moved.
This woman would love to find out who these twin sisters are and get in touch with them to thank them. Assuming they were born in approximately 1950, the twins would be about 67 now.
Does anyone know who they are?
