Rochies Friendship Network; Mommy n Me

As Rochie's friends and family, we wanted to create a program in Rochie's memory that would personify all of her many qualities. We decided on something that would fulfill at least two criteria: the participants would be her peers and the goal would include creating a forum to initiate and solidify friendships amongst young women. We voted on an innovative and exciting group for mothers and their young children. The weekly meetings will take off after Yomim Tovim IYH, and will include curricula developed by skilled early-childhood professionals, monthly music and movement exercises with popular local artists… and most importantly of all, opportunities for big and little people to share and help each other. If you would like to get involved in administrating the program or to receive updates on our events, email or call 718-467-8761 (day) or 718-363-8893 (eve).

I just wanted to say that I've been thinking about Rochie (although I never actually knew her) all through this time of year as we say "her" Kapital during davening.

But today is the last day we do that and it's going to feel very strange tomorrow when I don't say it (I started while she was in hospital).

I hope that Rochie's family is managing well and that the projects set up in Rochie's memory will help to bring Moshiach bimheyra v'yameinu.
