Eemunah-love-chicken-soup-250munah With Love and Chicken Soup

Henny Machlis – The Brooklyn-born girl who became a Jerusalem legend

The Machlis family hospitality is legendary. Every Shabbos they fit 150 or more people in their small Jerusalem living room, preparing for their guests over 40 chickens, three different kugels, countless salads, four desserts, and, of course, gefilte fish, chicken soup, and cholent– both traditional and vegetarian.

Brooklyn-born Henny Machlis was at the heart of this amazing weekly adventure. But, as author Sara Yoheved Rigler, bestselling author of Holy Woman and a friend of Henny’s, discovered as she interviewed Henny’s fourteen children, relatives, students, and friends, the Shabbos hospitality was just one glowing facet of the multi-faceted diamond that was Rebbetzin Henny Machlis.

A master of prayer, a virtuoso in chesed, an adept in childrearing, a wise Torah teacher, an expert at working on middos, and a successful shadchanit, Henny Machlis regarded a life of Torah and mitzvos as a great treasure that she was eager to share with everyone.

And her emunah, her faith in G-d’s love and providence? That was where her light shone the most brightly. She lived on the Planet of Emunah, a place where miracles were everyday occurrences, because she knew, really knew, that only Hashem is in charge and He can do anything. And, for Henny, He often did.

Like a steaming bowl of chicken soup, this book will satisfy you. Comfort you. And heal you — in a way that only Rebbetzin Henny Machlis could. Sip it. Savor it. And be inspired and transformed.
