This video was made during a visit to Australia by my wife Elaine and me after a long absence. I relentlessly videoed every meeting with Betar friends and relatives over a 5-day period. This, and other videos from 1998, were the result.

So- why now? While  I was looking for a conversion device for the several thousand feet of Super-8 film, I discovered the videos I had forgotten about and resurrected them. Having also located both my 20 year old analogue and digital video cameras and found them operational, I searched out the necessary hardware and software to transfer them to digital, edit and then load to YouTube.

Christmas day is usually a write off for many of us - but I had not tasted an Aussie BBQ for 25 years. So Avraham and Raymonde Appel, Evie and Elliott Katz and Brian Rudzki headed out to the Silvan Reservoir, about 30 miles west of Melbourne, for some steaks, snags and chops.
