The Second Fishbein Family Wimpel
When the original family wimpel, created in 1996, was lost, it was critical to provide a replacement, in order to carry on the custom. The second wimpel was inspired by the concept that all flows from Torah and thus the roots and trunk symbol was designed around the word Torah within the prayer. The word Mishpochah, or family, was designed with the branches that extend from that tree and the Fishbein name included the drawing of leaves and acorns, symbolizing growth and the fruit of the Torah. Within each of the family members names, the acorn symbol can be found. Clearly, this family finds its strength and meaning in life directly from the torah.
Current updating includes the addition of the eldest daughter's new husband's name and data relevant to their marriage. The youngest daughter was honored with this wimpel's binding of the Torah scroll at the occasion of her Bat Mitzvah. All information regarding her simcha was duly noted on the wimpel, along with reference to its first binding.
