The site is not a blog, but rather a vehicle for sharing family information such as family news, births, deaths, activities, pictures, achievements. The site relies on input from family members.From January 2004 until August 2010 this site was updated weekly.  From September to December 2010 the site was updated sporadically. Since March 2012 the site is again being updated  weekly.

After attending the Bridge Champions' Cup in Riga Latvia (see here) we continued to Tallinn in Estonia to visit Doreen's Drui relatives. In 2009 we received an email from Heini that he was excited to have found his father's name on my family tree on this site.  He was looking forward to renewing contact and meeting his Israeli family with whom contact had been lost for over 20 years. (see 2009 Archives).
In 2014 he came to Israel and we met him and his charming wife Tiina. (see 2014 Archives) We promised that one day we would visit them in Estonia and this past week we did and they went out of their way to make our stay memorable!

  • Congratulations to granddaughter Amit Levy on her 12th birthday. Although she said she did not want a batmitzvah celebration she was delighted when our family organized an impromptu surprise 12th birthday party at a Tel Aviv restaurant. See pictures here. Afterwards Dad Aviv, Mom Limor and siblings Itamar and Ilai took her for a weekend to Tiberias where they had a great time. .
  • Three hours after landing in Tel Aviv from Estonia, I was back at the airport to fly to Eilat for the Red Sea Bridge Festival. Doreen joined me the next day and we enjoyed our stay at the Lagoona hotel with the beautiful view of the marina.
