As I walked into my class today, a woman whom I’ve seen before, but was never told she was Jewish, asked me if the strings hanging out of my pants are called Tzitzis. I answered yes and Maxine Grossman joined my class. Maxine was born in 1943 in Philadelphia. She had one brother. Her father was a tailor and sent her to St. Lucas Medical Center to become a medical technologist. After graduating, Maxine got married to a tailor like her father. The couple had two boys who now live in Florida, not too far from her. She very much enjoyed our discussion about Shabbos and plans on becoming a regular participant in our classes!
