Those of us in our eighth and ninth decades are quite blessed to be able to see 2018 open, when many of us never expected to be here. We are the last of those who knew Eretz Yisrael before it was the State of Israel.

We have had the merit of watching Israel grow and succeed in a multitude of ways. The Jewish mind in this land has made it possible for our scientists and computer experts, cyber knowledgeable to reach new peaks that the next generation can climb. Those discoveries are the work of those in their second to sixth decades.
