There aren’t too many people around who make Shimon Peres seem like a youngster, but by the time our president was born, Georges Loinger had already reached bar mitzva age.

The Jewish Frenchman, 102 years young, was here last week with a group of officials from the OSE (Oeuvre de secours aux enfants, or Children’s Relief Effort) organization, with which he has worked since World War II.
