Boruch Dayan Emes: Bubbe Maryasha at 106!

Maryasha Garelik of Brooklyn AKA Bubbe Maryasha passed away last night at the ripe old age of 106. She was a hallmark of the Lubavitch community as she had stood up to the Soviet regime who ultimately took her husband's life.

Ms. Garelik was buried on Thursday at the Old Montefiore Cemetery in Queens in a grave near the late Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, the Lubavitch spiritual leader; in Russia, he was part of the same Jewish underground as the man who became Ms. Garelik's husband.
