It was just a year ago on this very date that women from the Crown Heights community listened intently to the words of Mrs. Miriam Swerdlov as she chaired an evening of learning and inspiration.
The occasion was the 26th yartzeit of our daughter Alta Mina a”h Bas Yissachar Shlomo שיחי׳. Every year, on that special date, women from the community would gather for an evening of Achdus and personal growth in honor of our daughter’s yartzeit.
This year, as her yarzeit falls on Shabbos, we decided that Mina’s living legacy should impact not merely upon our immediate Crown Heights community, but rather worldwide. We have therefore created a virtual farbrengen.
Watch: Virtual Farbrengen
Mina’s joy of life and her enthusiasm and excitement about yiddishkeit influenced many during her short lifetime. She radiated warmth and love to all she met. Her living legacy has not only impacted upon the thousands of children that benefited from Keren Alta Mina, but also upon every person who has joined the yearly farbrengens and gained inspiration from her seven short years.
We now welcome you to join as well! Hashem in his infinite wisdom has returned Mina’s neshama to her Maker, but we can continue to do what she did best, “bringing a smile to every child’s face.”
Please join us as we commemorate Mina’s 27th yartzeit.
Say a Lchaim, join the farbrengen at KerenAltaMina.org and perpetuate her legacy by partnering with Keren Alta Mina.
