Mazal tov Phyllis Lader, originally from Glasgow, then London, now Protea Village, on your 100th birthday.. This wonderful occasion was noted by HM The Queen with a special letter – plus an appearance by Phyllis on Israel TV News! Due to corona, all the family couldn't get together, but here are some of the family with Phyllis. Her clan includes 5 children, 23 grandchildren, 95 great grandchildren, 2 great great grandchildren and more on the way! "They are all mine!" said Phyllis as she literally danced from party to party in her honor!

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)
