Writer’s Envy

Azriela Jaffe

 

There are no Words

Azriela Jaffe

When I am not writing for Mishpacha, I am writing family-commissioned holocaust memoirs. I am hired by a family who, Baruch Hashem, has a surviving matriarch or patriarch who has merited to see many grandchildren and great grandchildren rebuild their decimated family tree. One of these memoirs I wrote about the esteemed Mrs. Esther Schonkopf of Lawrence, NY, who became one of my favorite people on the planet once I got to know her and her equally outstanding family.
