Our baby girl was born on Sunday, the day of the levaya of Rebbetzin Faye Gittel Shisgal a”h.
In Yiddish, GITTEL means TOVA. We saw somewhere that in English, FAYE is like FAITH – confidence, trust, belief…
Is there any connection in Yiddish? Does FAYE have to do with bitachon, emunah, etc.?
Even our rov, a special and humble talmid of Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l, Rebbetzin Shisgal’s father, does not know the meaning of FAYE in Yiddish.
Do any Matzav readers know the meaning of FAYE in Yiddish?
And does anyone know how to ask the surviving family about the meaning of FAYE so that perhaps we would name our baby girl after their mother/sister, FAYE GITTEL? We’d like our baby girl to have the special blessing of being named after such a special Rebbetzin.
