Dr. Clara Hammer, The chicken woman of Israel

There are some people I wish would live forever. Hashem gave Dr. Clara Hammer a long life. She definitely had a purpose and a most committed soul. Such a sweet soul filled with goodness/humanity. A rarity in this World and an absolute delight to behold. Beautiful!
