Jewish Community, Family, Nurturing, and Connection

«Jessica Orbach said her mother-in-law was "passionate about, and devoted to, yeshiva education." An elementary school art teacher, who dedicated much of her time to the Yeshiva of Flatbush when her children were growing up, Orbach was "deeply religious and traditional, living a life of love of Judaism. She served Hashem, her community and her family with utter joy."

Jessica told JLBC that Yocheved was a typical Jewish mother who loved feeding people and loved to nurture and care for others. As president of the Ladies Auxillary of Yeshiva of Flatbush, she instituted "Pizza Day" where she and her husband would heat up and hand out pizza. They sponsored the project for 10 years after being informed that many children couldn't afford the pizza. It is now being called the Yocheved Orbach Pizza Project in her memory.»

Chessed for the community is a big component in "what makes Jews tick".
