GLANCING AT the “Stop the retreat from Sinai!” flyers she was handing out at the Hebrew University’s entrance in the spring of 1981, none in the multitude about her could suspect that the smallish, stout, redhead, Bambi Ehrlich, would later emerge as a journalistic pathbreaker, major social critic and harbinger of an evolving new Israeli.

Yet, Bambi, as the woman born Beatrice Ehrlich was known since her infancy, managed all these despite dying prematurely in Jerusalem last month at 58, following a battle with cancer.
