Feigel bat Tuvia Nisan (Florence) and Esir ben Avraham Benyamin Tobolowsky, the parents of Susan Barth, in whose memory her organization, Together in Happiness was created, and the First International Conference on Marriage Education in Israel was dedicated.
Growing up in a home with parents who listened to understand and not to just respond, impacted Susan so greatly that when her parents passed away it was an obvious decision to honor their memory by sharing their influential teachings.
Feigel and Esir, whose marriage spanned 52 years, were role models of a marriage built on the foundations of mutual respect, trust, communication, shared goals, love and commitment to each other and their family values and appreciation for the gift each had found in the other.
Despite physical challenges in their older years, the support that they gave each other was inspirational. They advised couples to find ways to grow together and deal with adversity with a positive outlook. Together in Happiness is a fitting tribute to the attributes of this modest couple. Their home was an open house of hospitality and their kindness endeared them to all who crossed their paths.
