Why there have been fewer postings

Hello, Tracing the Tribe readers

Regular readers will note that the past week has seen a downturn in frequent postings.

Unfortunately, my husband underwent major emergency surgery 11 days ago and I've been at the hospital most nights as well as days. He is well on the road to recovery, thank G-d, and I hope to be back to a more normal schedule in a few days.

For those readers who knew and have sent personal messages, thank you for your concern and prayers.

Some have asked for his Hebrew name to offer a prayer for his recovery; we are grateful for this. The ritual name used is different for various communities. The Persian tradition includes the father's name, while others use the mother's name for this ritual. To cover all traditions: he is David ben Yakov va Ester (David, son of Jacob and Esther)

Thank you.



  1. Best wishes for David's speedy recovery.

  2. I'm sending speedy and pain-free recovery vibes to your husband, Schelly!

  3. Schelly, so glad to hear your husband is on the road to recovery. Stay strong and don't forget to take care of yourself, too. Hugs and warm wishes for you and your family.
