This is the wedding of my brother Beniamin in Jaffa. The photo was taken in 1950. My brother and his wife Sheli are in the center of the photo. My brother's relatives are on the left and his wife's are on the right. My father Menahem is on the right in the first row, my mother Delicia is next to him, and my brother Eliezer and his wife Sara are behind them. My parents settled in the town of Jaffa. My brother Samuil still lives there. My father became a peddler after they settled in Israel and my brothers did dirty jobs. Only my brother Beniamin managed to do very well for himself. My other brother, Eliezer, who married there and had a big family with five children, was a retail merchant. My youngest brother Samuil worked in a film studio. I have one brother and many nephews in Israel now. My maternal relatives also settled in the town of Jaffa. My aunts settled in Jaffa, Bat Yam and Rechovot. I have been to Israel about ten times. All my relatives on my mother's side live there. Only one cousin of my paternal side lives there now. She is a daughter of my father's oldest brother Rahamin. Only my mother managed to come to Bulgaria after they left in 1948. She came here to see my daughter in 1971. My brother comes almost every year. I keep in touch with him, as the situation in Israel is very hard at the moment.
