To all of you who were students or colleagues or friends of Mrs. Sokol, I am reaching out to you to give back to Mrs. Shirley Sokol only a fraction of what she gave to us. Mrs. Sokol, as interesting and intelligent as ever, unfortunately has retired from teaching because of her health. She has impaired vision today and can no longer read. For someone used to learning every second of her life, not being able to read is devastating. We are putting together a group of former students, colleagues, and friends who know Mrs. Sokol and would like to visit her and be enriched by her presence. ONLY if you know Mrs. Sokol, you can reach me at and ask to join our whattsap group of Mrs. Sokol fan club members. If you do not have whattsap, then please email me and I will organize your information in collaboration with the whattsap group. Please forward this message to anyone you know who may have been her student or colleague in Bais Yaakov of Rabbi Balkany or later on in Bais Yaakov D'Rav Meir.
