Aunt Pearl and Grandma Becky’s Candlesticks

By Ruth Ellen Gruber

Some time ago, I wrote a post including my aunt Pearl Gruber Kaplan’s recollections of her mother, my grandmother, Rebecca (Rosenberg Gruber) Rifkin, lighting the candlesticks on Friday night.

Here is a recent picture of Aunt Pearl, with a still life she painted of the Shabbos candles, and the candlesticks themselves. Photo was taken by her son, Robert (Tex) Kaplan.

  1. My maternal grandmother’s name was Pearl Bauman Gruber. She died in about 1945 in Liberty Center, Ohio some 25 miles South of Toledo. Any relation that you know of?
