July 2017 - Ilai undergoes back surgery
 Ilai underwent a successful back operation and she is recovering well. She is walking well, though of course slowly, and is improving daily. She has been in hospital for a week and should be allowed to go home in a few days time. In the meantime she is a couple of centimetres taller because her back was straightened. See also Archives.

report card
Mom Limor, who two weeks before the prize giving ceremony knew that both her daughters were to get Certificates of Achievement, told each one in strictest confidence and secrecy that her sister was to get a certificate. Imagine their surprise and delight to find out they too received one.

December 2013 - A visit to the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo

Doreen and I  spent a most enjoyable day at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo with the family. Aviv Levy and Itamar, Amit and Ilai came up from Eilat and joined Moran and Mikhal Segoli and Maayan , Lotem and Zoe. Mikhal's mother, Yael Segoli, also joined us with three cousins from the Segoli side, Rotem, Ido and Amit (children of Mikhal's sister Naama and Moshik Yaniv). All the children got on extremely well and had a wonderful time. Vered Ron, who was working in Jerusalem, joined us for a short time.  The zoo is large, well-organized and has many interesting animals.

August 14, 2013 - Ilai's eye operation
Ilai underwent surgery early Wednesday morning on both her eyes to correct a problem. She was really brave about the whole situation and didn't even complain when she had to walk around for a day with her eyes closed. (Putting drops in her eyes was another story ...). The operation appears to be successful and by Friday she was able to accompany the family to their skydiving adventure and see Daddy Aviv and Mommy Limor jumping. (see Archives of 17/8/2013 for another picture of Ilai and here for the family's skydiving pictures.).

February 21, 2007: Ilai's brita in Eilat .

We celebrated the brita (naming ceremony) of Ilai, at a lovely function at an hotel in Eilat. Ilai was named and blessed in a simple but meaningful ceremony by the same rabbi who had performed the circumcision on older brother Itamar..

The event was most enjoyable and well organized, and the food was excellent as can be seen by the obvious enjoyment of some of Ilai's cousins.
