Betar experiences
My first Betar meeting was at Beth Weizmann. The madrich was the late Philip Mirjam. The
group consisted of Gary Rudzki, Betty Brisson, Jackie Katz, Dennis Samolin  and……..can't
remember who else.  On entering the room I saw Jackie smoking with his feet on the chair
before him, Gary looking half asleep, Dennis looking into the far distance and only Betty
listening. to Philip. Somehow that picture never left my memory!! Another thing I cannot forget is 
Henry Krantz making me sing, in Hebrew, at Yosef and Dora Steiner's farewell function!!  Didn't
know any Hebrew, didn't know the song, didn't know Henry Krantz - but he was handsome and
very persuasive so I went on and really botched it.  Later I was in Seminar Madrichim run by
Shimshon Feder and others.  My Hashmonaim group met at Beth Weizmann .  Later I was a
member of the Netzivut, but cannot remember as what.
Final thoughts:
