6th Annual Hadassah Barbeque Picnic for Family and Friends
We celebrated 100 years of Hadassah at the park today with a lovely kosher hot dog barbeque. The weather cooperated and was especially mild, making chatting with old friends most comfortable. Hadassah is involved with the Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem.
Moving to Israel in 1980 was a big decision, and one I'm so glad I made. As a 22 year teacher of Elementary education, I became a junior high teacher of Engish as a 2nd language in Safed after a 10 month educational experience in Haifa of which I completed and became a certified Israeli teacher, even passing the Hebrew test by the skin of my teeth actually after breaking my elbow and arm bone just as the 1982 war was about to start. I've written 2 true books and now have been working in 6 blogs; 3 about Israel and 3 about family genealogy. It's all enough to keep me very busy. I've met the best of people this way that I dearly love, while in my home my time is spent with my female Llasa apso, my age in dog years and as spoiled as can be. I swear she understands too much.
