    Now the Lazars have 12 children – 5 boys: Jehezkel, 15; Menachem Mendel, 13; Sholom 12; Isroel Arie Leib, 9; Levi Itzhak, 8; and 7 girls: Bluma, 16; Fradel, 12; Dvorah Lea, 8; Sterna Sarah 6; Broha, 6, Rivka, 3; and their newly born sister.

    The naming of the youngest daughter is expected to take place this Saturday. In accordance with the Jewish tradition, the name of a newly born child is pronounced during the prayer, after the reading of the Torah.
    Berel Lazar and his wife were married in 1989. All their children were born after the rabbi came to Russia. [Interfax]

    12 kids, but not THAT close in age in your neighborhood. And Russia wouldn’t be the place where you would dare raise your kids, anyway.
