“Why don’t you write a book?” This question has been asked of me countless times over the years. While circumstances never allowed me to do so, I am very excited for this opportunity to share what I have known, seen and experienced in my 60 years of life as a part of the Jewish community of this great city. In my lifetime, I have seen this city change in monumental and unthinkable ways, both in good times and in bad, up until the time they happened. The story of the last 60 years is my story, too. In each column, I will share pieces of that story. The details remain fresh in my mind.
