I am back in gray foggy Indiana, but Irene's letter and the memory of that
afternoon in Haifa and other meetings with Czernowitzers in Tel Aviv,
Jerusalem, Natanya and Hertzlia bring back the warm feelings I experienced.
I will write in detail about our conversations and discussions in regard to
the reunion in a day or two. Now I just want to say that they were very warm
and productive, that we learned a lot and that I am very optimistic. Just to
think about the wealth of knowledge, humor and fellowship which exists among
Happy, healthy and peaceful 2006 to all.
