Haberman, Malca

March 12, 1923 – Feb. 28, 2013

Malca (Linvey) Haberman was born in Tel Aviv on March 12, 1923, and died Feb. 28, 2013, in Davis. Her parents, Israel and Pnina Livney, struggled to build a house in Rehovot, Israel, where she and her mother did laundry for laborers to help pay for the construction.

She served in the Palestinian Women’s Unit of the British Army for the last four years of World War II. Her stories of wartime Egypt included overwhelming heat, sandstorms and poverty, visiting newly opened pyramids, colorful British soldiers — including a drunken dental officer — and attending rare classical music performances. Gaining the rank of sergeant meant she had her own bedroom for the first time in her life.

She returned to Rehovot, where she worked as a secretary at The Weitzman institute, and lived through difficult years of rationing and war. She was proud to be selected to participate in the initial census of Israel, in which the entire population was required to stay at home while she and other canvassers went door to door.

She joined the Israeli diplomatic corps and was stationed in Washington, D.C., in the exciting early years of the state of Israel. She married Sol Haberman in 1956 and they lived in the Washington, D.C., suburbs where she was a dedicated wife and mother and where they made many treasured, lifelong friends. She was proud to teach and share her amazing knitting, sewing, quilting and other talents with patients at NIH, where she volunteered for many years and was frequently called upon to translate for families from Israel.

In 2002, she and Sol bravely left their community and relocated to Kent Drive in Davis to be near family. Her new Israeli friends in Davis marveled at Malca’s encyclopedic biblical knowledge, which she proudly told them was gained by surreptitiously listening as her father taught her younger brothers. Her memory of personal and historical events was legendary and she loved to tell stories about her life.

She was predeceased by Sol and her brothers, Shlomo and David. She is survived by son Dan (Dahlia), grandchildren Guy, Aviel and Ella, brother Benny, sister-in-law Hava, and many nieces and nephews. Burial was March 1, 2013, at the Davis Cemetery where she was beautifully memorialized by Rabbi Greg Wolfe, and where she is reunited with her generous, warm-hearted Sol.

The family wishes to thank all of the wonderful people who crossed Malca and Sol’s path in Davis and helped them create a new life. You can honor their memory by reaching out to someone who needs friendship and assistance.
