Shachor immediately contacted Esther and told her the story of the how the Machzor came to be in his possession. He told her that he wanted to hand the prayer book back to the descendents of Shmuel Rosenberg and scheduled a meeting with the extended Rosenberg family in Kfar Saba.
Chaya Eichel, Esther’s daughter described her anticipation before the meeting. “I was very excited and couldn’t sleep all night. When I think about how things have worked out, I believe that there is nothing more appropriate to honor the soul of Shmuel Rosenberg. After all these years the Machzor is being returned to the family - a family who will continue to use the book for prayers on Yom Kippur,” she said.
