What Else She Said

My husband used to be teased all the time: 'Your wife's one of the ones involved in SHALVA, well what does that mean about you.' Our husbands had to be very strong, supportive, and very confident in our marriages in order for them to let us keep on doing it."
- Fayge Siegal

"Itís always easy to take the path of least resistance. I think our kids see it, and other kids see it--especially if you are teaching--they see that you stand for something. Taking on a challenge is never easy. It is always easier to sit home and read a magazine and put your feet up. Any community has so much that they need help with, and if nobody will help, nothing will happen. Thatís a message to convey."
- Chani Friedman

"It certainly made [our children] much more aware of problems that exist and much less likely to go through life with blinders on"
- Fayge Siegal

"And [our involvement has made our children] much more proactive, and much more verbal. I know my kids are very verbal about what they need and are willing to take, and willing to fight for what the community needs.
- Shoshie Kahn
