The Jews Excelled In Valor (cont.)

 

 
“I left the 'good time' behind and made aliya to Israel…”

 

 
Shmuel Levitt in his Clinic

“I owe a lot to my sisters Rivka and Batya, who helped me so much during my bitter days…”

 

Of course I'm happy to be here. From our early childhood we were taught to love the Jewish people, to love Eretz Yisrael. It was like in the fable. In Dusiat, everyone was devoted to Eretz Yisrael. The education at school and in the movement directed the youth to building up Eretz Yisrael and not to leave it. We have had enough of the Diaspora!

I've received a few certificates of merit. But I must confess, that my contribution to the IDF gave zest to my life…

I remember those days of childhood when I used to draw coins out of the charity boxes, but I never dared to take anything out of the “blue box”! This was sacred money for building up Eretz Yisrael…
