Their mother told me the story

I am a friend of the davis brothers mother as i worked many years with her for the election board.
One day as we sat on eastern pkwy opposite 770 she told me of the rebbes friendship with her sons.
She said her sons when they were little were having an argument as the rebbe passed by. The rebbe stopped and told them not to argue and gave each son a dollar.
I personally knew the son who was murdered. He was a lovely special person and i know geoffrey the other son as well thru working with the election board

This is such a wonderful story and I really want the book to succeed

Did they show it to someone in the Chabad community (perhaps some experts in education) first? I’m not sure if this book is being marketed to Jewish buyers or not, but if it is, I am hoping they had it looked over. I am sure that this was made with the best of intentions. I just hope it was done in the best way possible.

This is so heartwarming. As a Crown Heights resident, I really appreciate your candid story of which I am not surprised. This needs to be shared because many for many
Jews as well as non Jews, this is enlightening. Keep up the great work you do. You are a true light unto our community!!

i like the articles writes african american instead of “black” because i feel this term adds division. same goes for white “cauasuan” or “sefardi” should be properly

Beauticul story. Everyone in CH should not fight and everyone should be respected regardless of color or religion.
