Amstislavski Bris: Philippe and Tashia discuss their son's name.
Our community celebrated the bris of Benjamin Amstislavski this past Sunday (May 9, 2010). We are thrilled to welcome Benjamin into our kehilah and we congratulated him on his wise choice of parents. This was a particular auspicious day. Not only was it Mother's Day, but as Igor pointed out, V-E Day (commemorating the victory of the allies over Germany in WWII). Benjamin was named after Phillipe's uncle, Viniamin, who was a Soviet veteran of the war and lived to be nearly 100. While we hope that Benjamin's life will be easier that that of his namesake, we wish his long life and the love and respect his great, great uncle enjoyed.
