This is my crew. I’ve know these powerhouse women (Dina Hurwitz & Brocha Lipkind) since I’m 6 years old. I can remember the day Dina fell for Yitzi, she called me and said, “I just met my husband”. Our lives have been intertwined so much; with the birth of our firstborns merely days apart, the many sing-a-longs, cry-a-longs, and shabbos tent marathons. But this is one marathon that I finally get to check off my list with Dina and Brocha. It’s not the marathon I ever thought we’d ever have to run, but I know this, if anyone is running towards love towards hope and towards miracles…. it is Dina and Yitzi.
And that’s a marathon Brocha and I would never miss.
A special shout out to my hero, my partner in crime, and our “Babefest” triple-threat Brocha Lipkind, who I blame for talking me in to this insane idea.
