Photos From The 2014, 5775, Azkara

It was good to be together last week. That annual reunion at the Mount Herzl Military Cemetery is the legacy of Eli and Chuck. So many of us are still friends, and Eli and Rena's children and now grandchildren know us, too.

May we meet at smachot!

Charley Levine z"l

Charley Levine passed away Sunday and the funeral is in Jerusalem today.

Charley was a Betari during his undergraduate days in New York and his MA was published in 1974 as "Propaganda techniques of the Bergson group, 1939-48" at the University of Texas at Austin, the state in which he was born.

Batya's reminisce.

Bobby Brown:

Unfortunately Charley Levine Long time activist for the Jewish People, Husband, Father, Grandfather, and my friend since College and Betar days [in the early to middle 1970s] has passed away...To all who knew him he was unforgettable, He was legendary in his fight for Israel's image and security. We will miss you my friend. At least you are no longer suffering. Our sincere love and condolences goes to all of Charley's family. Blessed is the ultimate judge.
