I visited Bea and Bunny Jacoby in their new Brooklyn assisted living apartment. Eli came over and set up my computer to record our conversation. I got about an hour of these delightful people. Devoted to each other, working through the vicissitudes of aging. Bunny turned 93 on Wednesday, December 15, 2010.
Bunny is Bernard Jacoby, the grandson of Bernath Jacobowitz, who is the brother of my great-grandfather, Wolf Jacobowitz. We were both amazed that the Jersey City Jacobowitzes didn't socialize with the Brooklyn Jacobys, Jacobis, and Jacobses. Wonder why.
