In Memoriam
Shoshana Rachel bas Elimelech Z”L

On Sunday, April 14th 2013, 12-year-old Shoshana Rachel bas Elimelech was struck by a car and killed.

Shoshie was an exceptional young lady, who was hardly ever seen without a smile. Her joy of life lit up every room she entered. She radiated happiness. Most unusual was Shoshie’s gift of accepting and including any girl no matter what school they went to, how involved in Judaism they were or whether or not they were popular. She loved everybody, no judgments, and no questions.

One thing that Shoshie really loved was music. Although Shoshie was 12 years old, she hadn’t yet had her Bat Mitzvah party celebration yet. Due to her love of Music and joy of life,we have dedicated our Music-4-Healing program in her merit. (Leilui Nishmat Shoshie).

We ask you to mention Shoshie when doing this chesed project so her memory will be immortalized and her life celebrated not only at one Bat Mitzvah party but at many.

Shoshie’s loss was devastating to her family, and to all who knew her, in her community and elsewhere. Shoshie was just an amazing girl and will really be missed.
