shabbat dinner
Shabbat dinner with the Keysons

We are in Amsterdam, Netherlands, to attend the unveiling of the matzeva, tombstone, tomorrow of out dear departed friend
from our first days in Israel Lottie Reijzer. Last night, after arriving from Israel, we were treated to a shabbat dinner by Lottie's daughter Jose and David Keyson. We enjoyed the meal, but even more enjoyed meeting once again the Keyson family. We and our children have maintained  contact with the Reijzer clan both in Israel and in the Netherlands, and it is always a pleasure to renew contact.

  • Congratulations to Mark Nathan (see Nickel family tree) on achieving the certification of Sifu (Master) of Wing Chun Kung Fu, the martial arts method within the Moy Yat lineage. See pictures.
  • The Segolis have finally finished paying off their mortgage and daughter Vered and Aviv joined us and them for a celebratory dinner. It was also son Aviv and Limor's wedding anniversary so we made it a double celebration even tnough Aviv and Limor couldn't join us. (see picture)
  • No visit to Amsterdam is complete without enjoying the delicious "new herring" and this time Doreen joined me. See picture.
