I never left home! I still occupy the “old family,” homestead. My two daughters, (and their husbands) operate Glen Head Horse Farm, established by my husband, many years ago. We give riding lessons. I handle camp and school programs. We board and sell horses, and run 6 horse shows a year. Tom, died in 1996, and we all decided to keep GHHF going. Both husbands have regular 9-5 jobs, but work at the farm in what they laughingly refer to as their “spare time.”

RITA POCHAPIN ROSEN
After graduating in 1943, I attended Columbia University. Philip Rosen and I were married in 1947, and we moved to New Rochelle in1949, where we still reside today. I was always interested in the stage, and the presentations for an audience. For oh so many Jewish congregations, and temples I performed in such dramas as the Miracle Worker, under the auspices of the America Theatre wing as well as at schools in Westchester county. I taught as well as organized, and produced performances of dance as well as drama.
Our activities were not tied strictly to the stage as Philip and I received the Humanitarian award from the Albert Einstein college of Medicine in Palm Beach Florida. The outside activities did not deter us from raising a family of three children, and a nest of seven grandchildren.
My life has been filled with wonderful events, and family happenings. I have been
Privileged to have had a busy, and productive life, with my religion and my family at the center of all of it.
