Looking back to the 79/80 Winter Ulpan, I realize that period of time was a major milestone for myself and the woman that I met there. Cheryl Reznick was a Ulpan B student and I was an Ulpan A student but we still managed to hang out and more.
Upon leaving Israel together in May of 1980 we eventually made it to Canada where I was from. She was from Miami and Los Angelos but accepted my invitation to come to Canada where we got married and eventually had three daughters who have all been to Israel a number of times and have extended family there.
All the very best to all who shared their lives and opened themselves to strangers. We are all connected!
Would love to hear from any students who remember us :-)
