      Hi Susan,
      Thanks for the note and for sharing the interesting coincidences! I will send you a mailing address to your email. Tel Aviv is so very far from Montreal, that you must be a little hesitant to see your daughter return to her studies! Good thing that Tel Aviv is such a fascinating place.
      Thanks for subscribing!
      Rebecca
