Happy 100th

Mrs. Geula Rafael [better known by her pen name Geula Bat Yehuda] is the daughter of Rav Yehuda Leib Maimon, Mizrachi activist, the first minister of religion in the State Of Israel and a very prolific author and talmid chochom. He had a library of about 40 thousand sefarim [he LOVED sefarim] and you can see it for yourself if you go to the Mossad HaRav Kook building across from the Central Bus station in Yerushalayim. We have to thank him and his son in law Dr. Yitzchak Rafael [he studied at JTS but was frum. JTS was different back then...] for the great publishing house "Mossad Harav Kook". Mrs. Rafael is also a very prolific author. She recently celebrated her hundreth birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!:-) BARUCH HASHEM she had one son, Rav Shiloh ztz"l, who was a great talmid chochom and he raised a family and had children and and grandchildren going בדרכי אבות!

Here is where she describes her father hearing of her birth.
