Procrastinate Now

Turning Tides

As told to Leah Gebber

My mother-in-law is tall and big boned, with broad shoulders.

A Place for Every Child

Malkie Schulman

The growth and success of the many children she touched are living testimony to the soft-spoken woman who quietly and astutely directed their development. Her passing has left a gaping hole in the Lakewood community. Ziva achieved her mission of finding a place for every child, whatever his struggles, only because she had a place, for every single one, in her heart.
