This wimpel was created for Dr. Neville Pimstone, Fay Pimstone, their three sons, Gregory, Kevin and Daniel and their daughter, Deborah. Bonnie Kaplan designed it in a contemporary style, per request of Fay. Fay elected to limit the color scheme to black, blue and a variety of metallic colors. Their wimpel (as seen in picture top left) has had simcha history added since its inception, July 9,1999, with the first Torah binding in honor of Kevinâ€™s marriage to Lisa Satzman. The marriages of the three remaining adult children and the births of grandchildren have since been recorded in chosen locations that relate to the central prayer. The bottom picture shows Neville and Fay, along with their youngest son, Daniel, binding the Torah scrolls on Thursday afternoon, to be read from on the following Shabbat at Mosaic Law Congregation Sacramento, Ca. Rabbi Reuven Taff assists with the ceremony as well as embellishes the occasion with meaningful words of inspiration. Wimpel statistics of all of the Pimstone children and their spouses have been annotated after each occasion.
This is one of those wimpelin, created in the Sacramento community, that has evolved along with its families' growth, and as such, exemplifies its value as a tool within the family. With each wrapping of the Torah scroll, a sense of symbolically bringing the noted individuals to their Judaic roots and identity, reinforces the concept of Torah teachings as the central theme in their family life.
