PETER BAILEY says he was prompted by love for the history of Israel to compile his new book taking a closer look at the personalities and events that shaped modern Israel and who are commemorated on the signs we pass every day.

Bailey made aliya from Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2013, with his wife Jeanne, joining his children and grandchildren already living in Israel.
