■ There's A baby boom among celebrities and public figures in Tel Aviv.Towards the end of last week, Tel Aviv City Council member Karnit Goldwasser gave birth to a girl at Ichilov Hospital. Goldwasser, 38, initially came to public attention in 2006 when she campaigned for the return of her husband Ehud Goldwasser, who as an IDF reserves soldier had been captured near the Lebanese border by Hezbollah in July of that year. It took two years before his body was returned, together with that of Eldad Regev. By that time, everyone in Israel and many people abroad had heard of Karnit Goldwasser; she had become a celebrity as a result of her efforts to bring her husband back to Israeli soil. Her mother-in-law, Mickey Goldwasser, who also campaigned vigorously for Ehud to be brought home, said afterwards that Karnit deserved to be happy and should find another life partner. Karnit has since been in a long-term relationship with Amnon Miranda, deputy editor-in-chief of Ynet; the little girl is their first child.■ Speaking last week at Ben-Gurion University at a conference on pensions, Bank of Israel Governor Karnit Flug said that women retiring from the workforce at an earlier age than men results in them having less money in their pension. In general, she observed, women live longer than men, and therefore there is no option but to raise their retirement age. But even if women’s retirement age is raised from 62 to 64 in 2017, it will not lead to a significant improvement in women’s finances in terms of pension, she conceded.
