Barbara, Mazal Tov!! So very proud of you and your accomplishments. Thank you for being you! 💕

Congrats, Barbara! Not sure you'd remember from the 60s when I attended Beth Israel in East Camden. But I remember how wonderful you were to us youngsters. Cantor Goldstein taught me my Bar Mitzvah, chanting the Book of Esther, and more. You were both their as I went through Hebrew High School and Midrasha. I didn't know until recently you were in Metuchen NJ. I started my first full time job in Data Processing in Metuchen, went on to AT&T and now live in Palm Springs CA. I'm happy to hear you are doing well in Israel, and at some point when I get to visit, I hope to see your street, and maybe you. Congrats again. So do you remember the Cantor's Concert around 1968? It was not so long after the 6 day war in Israel. Well in move from house to house, a tape cassette fell out of a box labelled Cantor's Concert. The one section playable is you introducing Sharm Al Shekh. If it can be transferred to other media, you may be interested in this great concert. Be well!
