Twins Married to Twins Give Birth within Mins
Two men, twin brothers who married two women, twin sisters, saw children born to their wives not more than twenty minutes apart last month.
The two couples are the proud parents of girls who, although not twins, clearly have a great deal in common: Their twin mothers were also born 20 minutes apart!
Niv and Ran Cohen married twin sisters Leah and Rivki Fisch after meeting them on a visit to the Galilee community of Yavne'el, where a large community of Breslov hassidim live.
According to Niv Cohen, seeing both him and his brother having their first child on the same day “is the greatest feeling in the world.”
Their wives' mother, he said, “got a lot of exercise as she had to run between the two delivery rooms to be with her daughters” at Laniado Hospital where both arrived within minutes of each other.
With the birth behind them, the Cohens look forward to many happy experiences watching their children grow. He and his brother, said Niv, “have been together all our lives, and we are together now.”
