Heirloom Prayer Shawl Stolen in San Francisco

the missing tallit
I'm doing some signal-boosting here.  On local news in the San Francisco, California, area tonight was a report about the theft of a tallit (Hebrew prayer shawl) from the porch of a family home in San Francisco.  This shawl is an heirloom that has been in the family for several generations, and it even survived the Holocaust.  The family lent the tallit to a cousin for a bar mitzvah, and the cousin sent the tallit back via FedEx.  The FedEx box was left on the porch, which is probably what attracted the attention of the thief.  The tallit has no monetary value but immense sentimental value to the family.  Anyone knowing anything about the missing prayer shawl, please contact Kathy Rosenberg-Wohl as soon as possible.  Please help return this family heirloom to its rightful owners.
