People whom we still see or keep in contact with: We are very lucky to have had continuous contact with so many of our friends from Betar  Australia who have made Aliya at about the same time as we did and the years following. We still meet regularly (although not as often as we would like) with two groups, our general age group and the next one (in which we believe we are included because It is Heather's brother's, Peter's, group).
The first group includes Dora Steiner, Theo and Anat Balberyszski, Shim and Perla Feder, Jack and Rosette Mirjam, Leah Feder  and Frida Sheiner.
Yoseph Steiner and Brian and Ruth Addess were also in that group when they were alive and we also kept in touch with Mervyn and Sue (z"l) Doobov.
Yoseph Steiner and Brian and Ruth Addess were also in that group when they were In the second group we have Leo and Celia Rogovin, Henry and Ros Ben Ezra (AKA Bishopverder), Solly and Rosalie Goldstein, Miriam Barash (nee Gottlieb, from Canberra) and Lionel ("Flapper")  Bomzon,
Then there are many, in Oz and other parts of the world, with whom we keep in touch and whose friendship we value to this day.
