Over 100 women streamed into an elaborately decorated hall in Flatbush, Brooklyn, last week to commemorate the Yartzheit of Avraham Dovid Liberow obm, who was killed in a tragic car accident at the age of 9 five years ago.
The event marked the 5th yartzeit of the young boy, the son of Flatbush Shluchim Rabbi Zalman and Chanie Liberow, and was held in appreciation of the volunteers of Shifra and Puah of Flatbush – an organization established in his memory.
Soft music and a sumptuous dairy dessert buffet greeted the attendees as they entered.
Mrs. Fannie Teitelbaum, the MC of the evening, introduced Rabbi Zalman Liberow, Shliach of Chabad of Flatbush who inspired and the audience with his meaningful Dvar Torah, encouraging them to take part in ‘Shifra and Puah’.
Mrs. Chanie Liberow then poignantly recalled the tragic accident which claimed the life of her dear son, as well as her friend, 20-year-old Mrs. Pesha Leah Azoulay obm; imploring the crowd to put in that one last drop of effort necessary to bring Moshiach.
A meaningful slideshow of his life followed, to the backdrop of a song sung by his 7 sisters.
Internationally renowned speaker, Mrs. Shimona Tzukernik, then captured the audience, discussing the comparison between childbirth and the redemption.
Following some words of appreciation by Shifra and Puah organizer, Mrs. Mushky Bryski, the women were enthralled by an exclusive musical experience, ‘The Song of Labor’. A beautiful song was sung comparing the process of labor to the last moments of Golus and childbirth to the long awaited redemption, threaded between interviews of women describing their experiences.
A raffle generously sponsored by ‘Welcome Home’ concluded the evening.
