‘Go forth and multiply’ - Hasidic matriarch leaves 2000 descendants

Here’s a nice change. Usually it is Christian families causing a sensation by having extra large families (Remember the Duggar family of Arkansas? More about them later.) But this story in the New York Times is about a Hasidic Jewish woman who died last month aged 93 leaving probably 2000 living descendants.

We have featured a couple of very large families on MercatorNet -- a New Zealand family with 14 children and a Spanish family with 15 (now 16) -- but both are outstripped by the Duggar family of Tontitown, Arkansas.
