Born in Poland in 1929, Rochelle Lawrence immigrated to Palestine with her family
in 1936. After two years of bombings and food shortages in Tel Aviv, Lawrence’s family
moved to the United States with the support of relatives. In 1949, Lawrence married
a veteran of World War II and eventually had three children. She made her home on
