This is me. The picture was taken in 1939 before I went to Palestine, a year after I left the yeshiva. In 1938 I left the yeshiva. I had other things to do. Partly to help my parents, to get into business life. In 1939 I went to Palestine. My parents sold some property so they could pay the Agudat Israel, a Jewish group that organized immigration to Palestine. That's how I went. My mother was sure that if I went there, with the family life and love that was in our family -- as several other relatives were in Palestine by then -- my life would be secure. I even was entrusted with taking care of getting the rest of the family out. That didn't happen, unfortunately.
