B"H - We were in our late teens and deeply secular when we had a relationship, a short love-affair, forty years ago. She and her mother were also Jewish, but secular. Her grandmother converted out to xtianity before the war, in the late thirties. Forty years on, she is a grandmother now and they came to visit Israel twice, one year after another. Her son also came to Israel twice, first on a Taglit Birthright tour and a year later as an IDF volunteer. Today he is flown back to the country from Hungary to have his brit done: Mazel tov! Better late than never. A touching story of return to G-d in the fourth generation. Am Israel Chai!
