Michal Eisenberg and Gidon Tuch got married in May 2020 at Nes Harim, in the Jerusalem Hills. Being corona time, only 50 guests were allowed and they included close family and the friends of the bride and groom.

The wedding of Sara Malkinson and Aviram Goshen took place on a hill in Beit Shemesh at a moment's notice because of the lockdown. The Yeshiva friends of the bridegroom arranged a chuppah and music, a seat for the bride and with their singing and dancing a beautiful chuppah was held.

Whilst on unpaid leave from work during the recent Covid-19 outbreak, I volunteered for ESRA. Why? Because it is an organization that cares. Cares for society and cares for its members. The older generation have built ESRA, the younger generation will carry this forward. Happy 91st Birthday Uncle Aubrey! From Daniel Ellman (great nephew)
