To Give You a Taste...

...of what I've been up to. Here are a few pictures:

We were at the 34th Azkarah, Memorial for two friends from Betar, New York, who where killed in the Yom Kippur War. The army assigns soldiers to be at the ceremonies, and they're always amazed that we continue to get together. The widow of one of the friends explained to the young soldier that we're "family." We grew up together in Betar. No "blood relations" can be any closer than we are.

The other night we attended Sheva Brachot in Jerusalem, the post wedding celebrations of a granddaughter of British friends, who brought us to England to work with the Betar Movement there over thirty years ago.

Last night I went to Kfar Adumim for a Bat Mtizvah celebration, granddaughter and daughter of good friends. The highlight activity was weaving a wall-hanging for the Bat Mitzvah girl. As you can see, both boys and girls participated. The instructor is a neighbor from Shiloh.
