This is me on my 50th birthday. This photo was taken in Kishinev in 1969. I was singing Jewish songs and my husband and my daughter were taking photos. 

I liked my job as music editor. I worked for the radio for 30 years. I was a good housewife and liked guests as well. My brothers Mikhail and David and their families lived in Kishinev. David and his wife Olga and Mikhail and Charna and we got together on birthdays and Soviet holidays. My friends Sara and Nesia were also with us. When we got together, I sang Jewish songs. My husband loved listening to me and played the piano for me. He also recorded my singing. I still have these recordings and also, recordings of my husband's music and his songs with the lyrics written by Moldovan authors.
