Here you can see my nephews, Jonathan and Karina Alder, the children of my sister Rozalia Adler's son, Iosif Adler. The picture was taken in Israel recently, but I don?t remember the exact name of the place, but it is well-known, it is near the Dead Sea. Iosif Adler married Mihaela Csisar here, in Romania, and emigrated to Israel, in 1986, I think. They live in Rishon Le Zion, and Iosif is an English teacher there. Iosif and Mihaela have two children, Jonathan, who was born in 1989, and Karina, who was born in 1992. They both speak Romanian rather well because my sister speaks to them in Romanian, and they answer in Hebrew, so she learns Hebrew and they learn Romanian. Karina doesn?t speak it that well, but she understands a lot. My sister and her husband left for Israel as well, in 1990, because their first grandson was born, and they couldn't stay away. They live in Rishon le Zion, and Iosif is an English teacher there. Iosif and Mihaela have two children, Jonathan, who was born in 1989, and Karina, who was born in 1992. We keep in touch. As far as I know, my sister didn't have problems with the letters she received from Iosif from Israel during the communist era, but they weren't about politics or anything like that.
