    Feter Lebeil OBM; The Malochim of the people you pulled out of Russia are waiting to greet you
    Fete Leibel; you were the last of Zaide Shlome Shimanovitz’ son- in law. An epoch has ended.

    You will be missed

    Sitting and reminiscing with my Mamme, Feigle Minkowitz, Z’GZ, yesterday Shabbos, about her young life, the difficult times in Russia, Tisha B’Av, the darkest time, in the darkest of places. We then went on to talk particularly about Fetter Leibe what a LEIB he was, at the very young age of 20. How many people he took out of the Meyztorim. How many Maasim Tovim Fetter Leibe did.
