Israel Has Turned 60, and I'm 62
This photo was taken while visiting my Aunt Jenny in New York, on the day Israel's Independence was declared. I have some vague memories of all the adults--my Aunt Jenny and Uncle Harry, and my parents, laughing and crying while listening to the radio in the "front room" of the fifth floor, walk-up tenement flat on Avenue B and 4th Street. Next month, Jenny and Harry's granddaughter--a woman only 4 years younger than myself, her husband, and their two grown children (Jenny's great-grandson is the same age as my son) and son-in-law will visit Israel for the first time.
