This week I was privileged to speak with Dr. Aviva Weisbord, an accomplished therapist and Jewish community professional, about her legendary mother, of blessed memory, Rebbetzin Chana Weinberg of Baltimore. Rebbetzin Weinberg, no less legendary that her illustrious husband Rabbi Yaakov Weinberg, past Rosh Yeshiva of Ner Israel in Baltimore, organized many helping organizations in Baltimore that began in her kitchen and became models of Jewish assistance nationwide. Perhaps the organization closest to the Rebbetzin's heart was Bikur Cholim, a network of visitors to the sick and outreach to their families. Dr. Weisbord speaks to us about her mother's indefatigable work, and shares with us many tips on how to prepare to visit the sick and what to do once we arrive at the side of those who deal with a wide range of medical challenges. You will be inspired, as I was, by the Derech Eretz, kindness and humanity of the Weinberg family, flowing from deep in their Jewish heart and touching the lives of tens of thousands all over the world.
This show is dedicated to the memory of my dear mother, Gertrude T. Adler, of blessed memory, who was kissed into Heaven five weeks ago, remembered with love always.
