Dear Safranim
One of our faculty members is trying to find a Midrashic origin for a 
quote from Moses Mendelssohn which goes something like: "When I was 
born, my future wife was also named, but at the same time it was said 
that she would be humpbacked".
Can anyone help with the Midrashic origin and/or the original Hebrew?
