Created in loving memory of
Miriam Tzimel bas R' Yosef Baruch
Expecting mothers need resources, women who recently gave birth need support, and mothers with young children need social networking. This website aims to centralize the existing resources, support, and social opportunities already available in Crown Heights.
And perhaps, most important of all, this site hopes to restore the age old value of the 'kimpatorin.' As a society in general, we have lost the art of convalescence. For new mothers in particular, taking time to heal and taking all the help available is the key to a speedy recovery, a healthy and happy mom...and a happy family! Mothers of Crown Heights creates awareness and provides the infrastructure to help Kimpatorin do their job best: rest.
Two new initiatives that are available through this site are:
An Extra Pair Of Hands
Where high school and seminary volunteers are available to help new mother for an hour a week, for up to six weeks post birth.
Gifting Every Mom
As part of the celebration of having a new baby, MothersofcrownHeights.org will hand deliver a lovely gift to mothers in Crown Heights.
The baby gifts are sponsored by Keren HaChomesh, the fund established by the Rebbe in memory of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, with the purpose of benefiting women and girls in the community.
MRS. MIRIAM FRIEDMAN
Mothers of Crown Heights was founded in the summer of 2017 in memory of Mrs. Miriam Friedman, ob'm. Mrs. Friedman was a longtime member of Crown Heights. She was Bubby Friedman to a lot more than just her grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great great grandchildren.
In her modest way, she was a shining example of the kind of wife and mother one strives to be.
