Rose Victor

In Rezhnoy, Hyman married Henna Rayzel, or Bubbie as she was known by her family.

Bubbie is an amuletic name, Yiddish for grandma, given to Henna at an early age for good luck, because the women in her family had a history of dying young.

Later, upon immigrating to America, Henna changed her name to Rose, most likely an anglicized version of Rayzel. This was after her name appeared in American legal documents variously as Babe, Bobe, and Dobe, prior to her arrival.

Before Hyman emigrated to America in 1913, he and Rose had five daughters: Feige, Ethel, Veilke, Hanna, and Rivke.
