Her offspring may not be quite “as many as the stars in the sky,” but there’s no denying the grandness achieved by Rachel Krishevsky, who died in Israel at 99, leaving behind approximately 1,400 descendants, starting with her 11 children and extending down the generations to “a few hundred” great-great-grandchildren. For some reason, Ynet feels the need to point out that Krishevsky was not a “record-breaker,” as “there are two well-known cases of living people having great-great-great-grandchildren.” But we doubt Krishevsky, who relatives say knew “the entire book of Psalms by heart,” as well as “all of her descendants,” would be disappointed; with all those names, she probably didn’t need Sudoku to keep her mind sharp til the end.
