Growing Greatness

Leah Gebber

Planted, tended, nurtured — tendrils appear; new buds stretch for the sunlight. A rain of exquisite white blossoms bursts forth. Deep within the human soul, growth is planted, tended, nurtured. Blossoms give way to the breathtaking fruits of greatness: connection, courage, breadth of vision, loftiness of spirit. Family First traces the growth and greatness of Mrs. Ettel Salomon a”h.
