Zack and Yaffa Channeling

Zack and Yaffa’s last name is officially “Stern”, but they were channeling a special spirit this afternoon.  Zack’s mother Eva had a departing favor that she asked before passing away (at too young an age), and that was to be remembered.  Ironically Zack’s Hebrew name is “Zecharya”, and if one follows the custom of omitting the last letter as to not form G-d’s name, the Hebrew becomes the same spelling as the English “Zachary”.  Inherent in Zack’s name is the act of remembering, and this afternoon’s simcha will be memorable to us for many years to come on so many different levels.
