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, except for a 3 week interruption December 2019 - January 2020 due to cessation of internet service beyond our control..

Some of our family reunions over the years

We try and have a family reunion - children and spouses and grandchildren - about every year.  Sometimes we have added other family members. The five of us (Doreen, I,  and our 3 children) often visited different places together but the holiday at Club Med in Chamonix France in 1996 when Aviv Ron joined the family vacation is defined as our first family reunion. With the addition of the spouses and granchildren over the years the reunions have got bigger. We have had 24 reunions and the 25th, with 16 family members,  is due next week. We usually have a special t-shirt for each reunion, but this year we'll have something else.
The pictures of the past reunions (with links to descriptions)  can be seen here, and the pictures of next week's reunion will wait for next week's homepage update.

  • Grandsons Itamar and Maayan went diving in Eilat and send their love to all the family. See picture.
  • What we used to take for granted has become special. Last Thursday evening we finally had friends (Colin and Louise Kessel, Pam and Geoff Bethlehem, Levia Paswell)  for dinner. It was so great being able to meet again and we had a wonderful time and Doreen went out of her way to prepare a fabulous meal.
