  1. Mazal tov !! A sach Yiddishe nachas!

    (NB the term “00” was given, according to the lore of James Bond, to British spies who had a license to kill, r”l)

  2. Well it is safe to assume that his name shall either be Eliyohu Eliezer or Mordochai, since Teveth 24th is Johrzeit of Rav Eliyohun Dessler and of Rav Mordochai Gifter.

  3. תהא זוכה להכניסו בבריתו של אברהם אבינו בעתו ובזמנו ולגדלו לתורה,לחופה,ולמעשים טובים בבריאת הגוף…

  4. The older child sitting there doesnt look to happy with the fact that a competitor over mommy’s attention entered into his life……….
    Poor mother, had to nebech put on her sheitel to llok good for the news reporters………………

  5. Kew Hardens Hills is in NYC and LIj Women’s hospital is also in NYC so nothing in this story has anything to do with Long Island (other than Queens, part of NYC, is on the island).
