From Days Gone By: Bubbe Maryasha Does Mivtzoim

Mrs. Maryasha Garelik, OBM, known affectionately by her hundreds of descendents as ‘Bubbe Maryasha’ until her passing at age 106 in 2007, assists Jewish women with performing the Mitzvah of Lulav on Chol Hamoed Sukkos. Can you identify anyone else in the photo, when or where it was taken?

    This picture is not on Mivtzoim per se. Its on Hoshana Rabba (5737); the one day the women were able to Bentch on the Rebbe’s Daled Minim.

    The picture is on the corner of EP and Kingston outside the ladies shul.

    The picture of Bobbe Maryasha is from Hoshana Rabah, she was the one to hand the Rebbe’s Daled minim to women & girls. It was the only day and later in the day, when they would be given the opportunity, only once all the men had finished.

    Great photo. Is that one of Reb Dovid Raskin’s daughters with the polka dotted collar at center?
