Snapshots of Zayde...

A typical pose--Zayde delights in the sunshine and the beauty of nature in one of his crumpled hats last May in Seattle.

This was taken for the family passport he used at age 23 to "make aliya" (move) to the fledgling state of Israel for the first time, with his wife and baby son, in 1949. A lack of secure work and housing caused their return to the United States.

This photo, ca 1967, at the family's Los Angeles home, seems to be a role-reversal. The dad has the beard, the teen college student is clean-shaven.
Below, Zayde presents his book, Hidden Light, to a group in Los Angeles last April.

I'm not sure, but I think this might be his graduation photo from Central High in Philadelphia.


  1. I haven't had time to get on here and give my condolences. You and your family were in my prayers.

  2. Thanks, Mink and Cam. I'm marveling at the amount of comfort I'm getting from the comments on my blog. Thank you, thank you.

  3. What a delightful man. Please give everyone there our love and condolences, we're thinking of you.
