I am delighted to announce that we have another new addition to the Rosenzweig family tree. Marvin Shea Sundick was born at 12:05 pm on February 20, 2015. He weighed 7 lbs. 5 oz. and was 20 inches long. He is the son of Lauren and Bradley Sundick and the brother of Madeline Sundick. He is the grandson of Robin and Ronald Sundick and of Ellyn Wolfenson, Mick Belzer and Bob Stein. Marvin is also the great-grandson of Sandy Wolfenson.
Marvin is named for two people. Marvin (in Hebrew, Moshe) is for Lauren’s maternal grandfather, Marvin Wolfenson, who passed away just a year ago. Shea was to honor the Shapiro family name (the birth name of Marvin’s maternal grandmother Robin). In Hebrew, Marvin’s middle name is Yisroel for Robin’s father, Israel Shapiro, Brad’s maternal grandfather and Marvin’s great-grandfather.
On his paternal grandfather’s side, Marvin is also the great-grandson of Mildred (nee Rosenzweig) and Seymour Sundick, the great-great-grandson of Joseph and Sadie Rosenzweig, the great-great-great-grandson of Gustav and Gussie Rosenzweig, and the great-great-great-great-grandson of David and Esther Rosenzweig. (That makes him my third cousin twice removed as David and Esther Rosenzweig were my great-great-grandparents, the parents of my great-grandmother Ghitla Rosenzweig Goldschlager.)
Mazel tov to all of his family! And welcome to the family, Marvin!
