9/22/2013 11:45 PM Hello Steven,

Millie Rauch's Hebrew name was Malka Bas/(daughter of) Reb Boruch.

Morton Rauch's Hebrew name was Mordechai Ben/(son of) Reb Yechezkal.

Just for clarification...In both cases, the word "Reb" is used as honorific title of respect. It precedes the given name, and does NOT generally imply rabbi. NO surname is mentioned in Hebrew....Jo
