I had a wonderful experience in Kibbutz Ulpan and later as a volunteer on Kibbutz Matzuvah from September 1975 - June 1976. The experience helped me clarify my goals in life. I then returned to my native New York City (Flushing) where I have lived ever since. I travel a lot. Next year (April 2017) I expect to visit Israel and Matzuvah. I hope there are still some kibbutzniks that remember me. And perhaps some of you who are living elsewhere also remember me and will get in touch.
