Thanks for the picture and the memories. The person identified as "Pinkey someone" is Shlomo Tzidkiyahu - he and his wife Tamira came as shlichim to the Machaneh I guess in 1968 or 1969

It was my only summer at camp Betar so... it was 1969 100 percent
The same summer that we put Benji Ahroni's car on the misdar block

Looks like my last year in camp.
Oh, memories

The view from the misdar grounds was always spectacular

That was truly a long time ago... I think that was the year I learned how to fix toilets at Camp Betar -- a skill that has proven to be quite useful. Between that and shooting M1 rifles, what else does a person really need?

You left our Julius Freulich (from Canada) and Eilene Solomon Z"L (behind Freddy and Gerry)

That was my first of three years at Betar - the best summers of my youth. I was even able to find myself in the group picture. In searching I was able to recognize so many long ago friends. I am sorry to hear of the loss of Eileen Solomon. She was a wonderful person.
