News and Pesach greetings from Michael and Ashel Cern:   "We live in Beer Sheva for the past few weeks, I started my engineering studies with the basics of math and physics, it feels like going back the third grade.  Ashel is still looking for a job, cross your fingers.   Besides that nothing new.  By the way, when is my next third meal duty?   Have a kosher and very happy Pesach, and please send regards to every one."

Happy anniversary to Michael and Lucy Partensky!
