Bobeshi Rivqah lived with her son, Rabbi Gerwitz and his family, above the temple in Brooklyn, New York.
She enjoyed walking and talking with everyone in the neighborhood.
They all knew her as bobeshi.
Retelling stories from her childhood at the Treblinka concentration camp, often, brought tears from those who listened.
Now, her health was failing; too ill to take walks.
Rabbi Gerwitz asked the congregation for prays for bobeshi.
Stomach cancer took her before the test results came back.
The congregation overflowed into the street as the family sat shiva.
Finally, Bobeshi Rivqah had found loving acceptance and peace.
