This is my husband Salvator Israel's grandfather, the father of his father Marko Israel. I don?t remember his name. The photo was taken in Israel around 1920. I know from my husband that his grandfather was a very good man. He was very religious and lived some time in Jerusalem, but he returned to Bulgaria, I don?t know why. He loved his grandchildren very much. His daughter-in-law Leontin, my husband's mother, looked after him and tried to please him so much that she often washed his long beard thoroughly.
