Dov Lowin, a Hatzalah emergency responder, is the proud father of a new baby girl, his eighth child and the first born in 2012 at Catskill Regional Medical Center.

For Kiamesha Lake couple, eighth child is special

By Dan Hust
HARRIS — Dov and Miryam Lowin’s little baby girl doesn’t have a name yet, but she’s already earned the distinction of being Catskill Regional Medical Center’s (CRMC’s) first baby born in 2012.
“We’re naming her on Saturday,” Miryam related inside CRMC’s maternity ward on Monday.
The Lowins are ultra-Orthodox Jews, and their 71⁄2-pound, 21-inch-long daughter will receive her name in a special ceremony this Saturday, on the Sabbath.
They hinted that she will be named after her late great-grandmother of Australia, who died 12 hours prior to her birth.
Residents of the Viznitz community in Kiamesha Lake, the Lowins didn’t expect their beautiful baby to be born on New Year’s Day.
“She was a week late,” explained Dov.
But thanks to the care of CRMC and their obstetrician (Dr. Timothy Rydell with Crystal Run Healthcare), the Lowins gratefully welcomed their eighth child into this world at 1:01 p.m. on Sunday (1/1, appropriately enough).
Dov had just been at the Harris hospital a few hours earlier, transporting a patient to the new emergency room. He works for Hatzalah, a local ambulance service.
The couple is well-familiar with CRMC, as this is their fourth baby born in its maternity ward.
“The hospital was really, really nice,” Miryam said. “It was a good experience.”
Staff even provided kosher food for the parents and a gift basket for the baby.
Also happily welcoming the new girl are maternal grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Slomiuc of Rockland County, and paternal grandmother Mrs. Lowin of Australia.
Dov and Miryam extended best wishes for the new year to the entire community, especially Thompson Town Supervisor Tony Cellini and staff, the Sheriff’s Dept., State Police, local firefighters and emergency workers, MobileMedic, “and all the good people serving our town and county.”
And they remain grateful for this gift of a precious child.
“I thank G-d for a healthy baby,” affirmed Dov.
