Twenty Years Later

Wednesday, 16 January 2008

Is it possible that we haven’t been together in twenty years and yet we managed to pick up as if it was just yesterday?

I continue to be amazed that one eight-week period in my life was so crucial to my development that it stands out with such significance.

For three hours, we four reminisced about our shared experiences, talked about our current lives, and marveled at the eventual outcome of all 39 of us who spent those two months together at HSI which was housed on the campus of a youth village in Hadassim. A NY best-selling author, a Naval hero, a rabbi (that’s me!), and the usual assortment of other professionals make up our group.

As I drove away from the restaurant, I marvelled at how much we collectively remembered and yet we each had had such different responses to the question “what was your most moving experience?”.

I cannot wait to get together again…may it be soon!

    Wow — my parents brought the info home to me…it took no convincing on my part. I am so lucky!

    And yeah, Myla was on HSI with us 😉

    You are so lucky! I, too, loved HSI, but didn’t make any long-term friends from it. I don’t think I’d recognize anyone except for maybe that guy I had a huge crush on.
