More from the saga of my father's new life in Israel, after making aliyah at 89.
My father has been in Israel about two months already. Originally I figured that my mother would be here by now, but she feels she must be in New York to sell the house.
In the meantime, we keep him busy here in Shiloh, occasionally visiting my married daughter in Ofra and her family, my father's great-grandchildren. This week was only his second trip to Jerusalem. Even by car it's a big trip for him, so we prefer local entertainment.
