“I NEVER imagined in my wildest dreams that I would see the Zionist dream of a Jewish State materialize in my lifetime or that I would personally take part in helping the dream come true” were the words of Zipporah Porath.

Seated on her high-backed wing chair, in her ninth floor sunny Ganei Tikva living room. She is surrounded by photos of her early Hagana days, diplomats, government officials, family and friends. Zippy, as she prefers to be called, was relaxed and composed throughout the interview. At 94, (in August she will be 95) she is well dressed with classic pearls, eye shadow and lipstick that she still applies herself.
