Rebbetzin (Yiddish term for the wife of a rabbi) Chaja Bloch Ausband, Rebbetzin Naomi Bloch Stein and Rebbetzin Shoshana Bloch Gifter—are cousins of each other and widows of rabbinic leaders of the Telz Yeshiva, a seminary transplanted from Lithuania to Cleveland, Ohio in the United States after the war. Khaye Bloch Ausband is one of the author’s source of information.
Shoshana Bloch arrived in the United States in 1940. She has married an American student of the Telz Yeshiva, Mordechai Gifter, who became the head of the Yeshiva In Cleveland. When she arrived in the United States, Shoshana was very interested in studying mathemathics. Harvard University has offered her two years of credits if she wanted to go on with her studies, but she declined the offer.
