Dear Mordechai

I came with the Hanoar Hazioni as I was in a Hachshara in Vatra Dornei
for a year before making Aliah. Indeed we came strajght to Mahane Olim
Raanana and I think we were the fist groups that skipped Atlith. Were
are you living now ? I will be in Israel from 2 Mai to 9 Mai and would
like to meet some members of our list.

Shabat Shalom and Chag Sameach
