In the TIS Family

Kaleb Myer Scheingross arrived on November 25 weighing 6lbs, 11oz and measured 19 inches. TIS members Daniella Knelman and Evan Scheingross (our TIS webmaster) were thrilled to welcome their second child. According to Evan, "Older brother Riley is still adjusting to life outside the center of attention, but he's starting to come around." Proud grandparents include TIS members Georgia and Alex Scheingross, as well as Andrea Katz, and Penny and Barry Knelman.
