They Wear It


Beitressa Mandelbaum, 30, Jewelry-Studio Director
Rosa Raykhelson, 86, Retired
Innessa Mandelbaum, 51, Homemaker
Rosa: My first was from Minsk, but my husband gave me this one for my 50th anniversary. It’s from a big store in Brighton Beach.
Innessa: Your first fur is a rite of passage in our family.
Beitressa: My grandma bought this for me. For years I resisted but finally gave in. She used to say no decent man would marry a woman who didn’t own a fur.
