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 Beautiful,
I have been thinking of you and Steve so much lately and miss you both. I hope that you are well and safe with the new Delta variant rampaging worldwide!
I hope that there will be some safe way to come and visit but for now we just need to wait it out. Israel is one of the countries with the highest covid vaccination rates but we are still not completely safe. I am mourning the collapse of the cruise industry as I am sure you are... I had 2 cruises cancelled since the covid madness started. Keep safe and well and drop me a line when you can... love you and miss you, Beth

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
