Milestones 191

TEL AVIV resident Michael Gal received a very special birthday card to mark his 100th birthday recently . . it came from Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Of course, Michael is no stranger to queens, kings or knaves as he’s a regular bridge player – and bridge champion – at the The Kikar HaMedina Bridge Club.
Queen Elizabeth's greeting card. The inscription says: “Congratulations and best wishes to you for such a special occasion.”

Please share with ESRA readers your celebrations - Births, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Marriages, Condolences.
