I lived in the U.S. until 1989. My last job there was as director if the Hillel House at U.C. Santa Cruz. The summer of 1989 I made aliya and have lived since then on Kibbutz Matzuba in the northwest corner of Israel, 3 km from the Lebanon border. Since moving here I have lived through 3 wars, experienced katyusha rocket shelling and a terrorist attack on our home and- ever the optimist- still dream of a lasting peace.
I work as a social worker with independent seniors in residential living situations and really love my work.
For fun and recreation I perform with a group of 15 singers in the closest city, Nahariyya, where we perform to a full house in the local auditorium (about 600 seats) 5 times a season, singing modern and traditional Israeli folk music.

School Story:

What can I say...You all know that I was a high school addict & loved being involved in everything, from drill team and varsity cheer to Madrigals and Key Club sweetheart, my high school experience was amazing and overwhelmingly positive. I guess my one disappointment was what we left behind as our plaque in the senior quad- "Out the door- '74"
come on guys, we were much more than that, were'nt we?

Hi Lisa, It looks like we won't be at the reunion, but I'm trying to plan a trip to the States for Daniel's graduation present. My half-sister Chris lives in Fort Lauderdale & invited us to visit and according to her that's about 3 hours from Sarasota,(where another of my half-sisters lives). If we could see you guys it would make the trip worth is for us. Daniel would love to see you again and I want to meet the man who captured your heart! I'll be traveling with Daniel & his best friend and would,'y expect you to put us up, just would ask your help in finding reasonable accommodations as we're on a budget. I don't have exact dates yet & know that you guys go from cruise to cruise... we're looking toward late June to early July. What do you think? I would love to see you in your element. - Beth
