Births

Hadassah Henya Schusterman
Hadassah Henya Schusterman

Hadassah Henya Schusterman was born on March 8 to Rabbi Ezzy and Nechama Schusterman.

Hadassah is the granddaughter of Rabbi Yosef and Dena Levin, directors of Chabad of Greater South Bay in Palo Alto. She is also the granddaughter of Rabbi Gershon and Chana R. Schusterman of Los Angeles.

Hadassah was born on the fast of Esther and was named Hadassah in the original version of Queen Esther’s name. Her second name Henya is after Ezzy’s grandfather, who ran from the Nazis and continued to live a life true to Torah and mitzvot. May she grow up to be like her namesakes.
