RIVKIN female family

Maternal grandma Rivkin and some female grandchildren.
A "Vision of Joy".
Partial family portrait taken prior to Shabbat when Toba celebrated her 3rd birthday by
lighting Shabbat candles with family & friends present at Chabad of Northridge.
I remember when sister, Mushka, celebrated her 3rd birthday in this meaningful way,
taking on Jewish ritual, shared by women in the world.
MIA, Mama Rebbetzin Rivkin was greeting guests and preparing candles for all women.
