Thirty seven years ago my friend Phyllis and I boarded a plane to Israel. That was the start of an adventure which would change the course of my life. It is hard to believe that was that long ago.years

Stepping off the plan in Tel Aviv was strange and familiar at the same time. One of my first stops was the central market where everything looked delicious.


There were so any different kinds of tomatoes and olives, and the dried fruit, spices and nuts looked amazing.
