It was wonderful meeting all of you Sunday night. Thank you for your
help and encouragement to make this event happen and to Avital Fux and

helping and supervising from start to finish, to the Israeli House and
Israeli Consulate for their encouragement and support; Dan Marshall
who prepared the flyer who wears many hats; Amnon Benabu for all the
unique Moroccan foods and Molfetta as well as the decorations; Claire
for her help at the last moment. Thank you Angela Schatz- who dropped
everything, brought her music and speakers and was ready to fill in
with Mizrahi style and dance in case our musicians could not make it
in time;Efraim Hain- my longtime friend-who is always there for us as
security and more. Pre-event, I thank my volunteers for their work on
Facebook, emails and phone calls: Linden, Minha, Kamilla, Sangeeta,
