    Nice try. But…
    1) the twins in this story must be much older
    2) The dubravskys were not blonde

    Twins?

    From Worcester, fair but not blonde, might be Fraidel and …, can’t remember the other one’s name, one lives in Crown Heights now and the other I believe is in Israel. They are identical twins and dressed exactly alike until the first one got engaged! Very, very nice ladies, very friendly and always with a bright smile….

    Were the twins baalei tshuva

    Were the twins baalei tshuva

    I wonder if the twins were baalei tshuva from stern college? I brought a number of people to lubavitch from stern college who went to speak to the rebbe. Among them were twins who had light brown curly hair. One is married to a lubavitcher but no longer lives in crown hts. I dont remember maiden name. Also i brought basie rosenfeld who is blond but her sister isnt a twin and not sure her sister was here then

    I remember...

    The other twins name is Gittel, I believe she lives in Crown Heights and Fraidel lives in Israel….

    Fradel and Gittel Berkowitz from Worcester (maiden names), were definitely not blonde

    Maybe Lieba doesn’t have an accurate memory of their hair coloring… It was many years ago…

    Not blonde!

    Also, to a young girl they might have looked tall but not necessarily be so tall…

    It is not “Lieba” whose memory you’re challenging. Lieba is helping ANOTHER lady who asked Lieba to help her find these twins.
    (Maybe the “ANOTHER lady’s” memory of the hair coloring is right, or maybe it’s wrong. But Lieba is simply the Lubavitch connection through which this “ANOTHER lady” is seeking to find the sisters who did so much for her, way-back-when.)

    What is the name of the lady who became frum w/ the sisters' encouragement?

    It may help if we knew the name (including secular first name and maiden last name) of the woman who became frum as a result of the sisters’ friendship with her–which began at the Reform Jewish overnight camp that the frum girls visited.
    Maybe the host family in Crown Heights will recognize the name and remember who arranged for the girl to stay with them.

    Fay Greenberg is the woman's name - Leiba

    Fay Greenberg from Queens, now aged 61, is the young girl of this mystery.

    Just for the record...

    I’m surprised that nobody pointed out that hair color (boys’ and girls’) can be much lighter in the summer. As long as the twins didn’t have jet-black hair, it certainly could have looked blonde in the middle of summer camp.

    Yes, you are right. My mistake.
    Leiba mentioned in #20 the woman is Fay Greenberg.

    Maybe sisters, not twins?

    it may have seemed to her that they were twins, but perhaps they were very close in age and appearance.

    Maliki and faigy were two amazing Bobov sisters who went to Bais Rivkah and formed extremely close friendships with their classmates . It is misleading to say ” they are not chabad anymore” .
    At that time ,there were often frum girls from outside of chabad whose parents wanted the warmth of a chassidishe chinuch that Bais rivkah could give their kids .

    What are malki and Faigy's last names ?

    hair color

    based on recent pigmentation research it is evident that hair color can change drastically during different seasons so h\their hair could well have been orange or brown
