Born in Boston, I also spent part of my childhood in Minneapolis. At an early age I fell in love with the ideas and debates of the Jewish People and with our language and land. I made Aliyah, married a fourth-generation Israeli and gave birth to three Israeli children. At the same time, I never lost sight of what my parents taught: we must each also be a citizen of the world concerned about all people, human society and our climate.
