Rochie's Birthday

This Shabbos, the 16th of Teves, is Rochie's birthday. Her new perek Tehillim is 29.

The following was compiled by Rabbi Chaim Dalfin for In memory of Rabbi Gavriel & Rebbetzin Rivkah Holtzberg HYD

The Rebbe's Advice #138 - Celebrating a deceased child’s birthday

It is appropriate to celebrate the day of a deceased child’s birthday by doing all the normal customs associated with a birthday and giving tzedaka in his memory. The amount of tzedaka should correspond to the numerical equivalent of the child’s name. A chasidic farbrengen should be made in conjunction with the birthday.
