16: Dear Tamar: Fifty years ago in the Shtetl of Flint, Michigan we were blessed by the arrival of a little girl. Little, but loud. And decisive. In short, a person. One to be reckoned with. One whose first word was "Self!" As in "feed self", "dress self", "conduct worldwide revolution self!" Well, maybe not that last one, it only felt like it at times. She went on to college, then graduate school, then work as a Zionist organizer, social work with the elderly, and topping it all off, a Mother. A mother, many, many times - of ten (so far) marvelous children. Some (most) are also in the "Self!" mode. All are incredibly diverse. Through it all she has led her brood back through time to a way of life designed to set them on a stable path in life with the guidance of our people’s sages and their holy books. Now our little girl is approaching middle age. May you enjoy the fruits of that time from your children's growing families. We have certainly shept nachas from yours. Love, Ima v'Aba
17: Tamar is a really good friend and very wise person, I just love talking with her or even exchanging small letters. When you talk to her, things somehow turn to be more clear. She is on a very high spiritual level, she possesses that kind of wisdom. She is not only a friend but Mashpia for many of her friends. Many blessings to her on her Birthday! Shulamis Trivinsky | There are no words to describe 20 years of a true loyal friendship!!! There are very few people I have met who understand what friendship means on all levels. Till a 180 old buddy!! Miriam Sherr | Happy birthday to a wonderful friend, who made me think and discover a source of strengths in my own not too little self. Thank you for everything! I hope Hashem will bless you with many open blessings and may we see you here soon! Henya Kazatchkov | Sorry, brain is gone. Can i pledge 50 yards of Primo fabric instead???? ;-) Malky Danziger | F R I E N D S
18: Dear Tamar, I can’t believe we are celebrating your 50th birthday. To me, you’ll always be eternally youthful. I met Tamar one summer at Camp Ramah in the Poconos while we were both staff working there. I worked in the office & she worked in Amanut (art). She was/is the best! She took me under her wing and made me feel welcome. I remember her saying that summer that when she grows up & gets married, she's going to have 6 kids! Well, she's outdone herself! This was way before she met her husband and they began their journey/lifestyle of Chasidism. Tamar's sense of humor is what I think of when I think of her. She's so full of energy & such a helpful person. I remember visiting her one night while she was a student at University of Pennsylvania. She decided she wanted carrot cake and proceeded to just whip it together from scratch! Grating carrots, baking ingredients! She always amazed me! Though I don't speak to Tamar much anymore, I know she's always a true-heart friend. I know I can talk to her about anything and she would listen and support me. That's the kind of person she is. I know this for sure. You are very special and I am so honored and blessed to have you in my life. May your next 50+ years be just as magnificent! Sending you my well wishes and love. Beth Weiner
19: It was Tishrei-time about 20 years ago. I was in shul and noticed a new-comer, Tamar Stone, who was holding her little one. She flashed me a wonderful smile and I was hooked. This was the beginning of my friendship with our “birthday girl.” We have shared the ups and downs that come with raising our families in the ‘hood. We have shared our extended families with one another too. Tamar gave my mother, ob”m, much chizuk as she battled her ailments. Likewise, Savta Brooks and I share a warm connection. Tamar is someone who is a rock for all who are privileged to call themselves her friend. For my 50th birthday, she took me to La Marais and told me that just as her dad, Dr. Brooks, insisted that the celebrant order whatever they wanted, I should do the same! I felt so special. Tamar has the knack of making her friends feel special. Just as the Rebbe, taught us to recognize our inherent strengths, so does Tamar. She encourages us to live up to our potential. She pulls no punches but punctuates her directives with her infectious humor. She is a treasure to all who know and love her. May Hashem bentch her b’harchava with her “heart’s desire.” May she enjoy good health, nachas and only simchas with her family and myriad friends. I know that she will be at the forefront leading the women in song and dance with Moshiach Tzidkeinu: NOW!!! Mazel tov! Penina Metal
