A Most Meaningful and Thoughtful Gift

What can be said about truly good friends.  Over the last few years I have spent evenings doing Israeli dancing.  The music and dancing are great for the brain and the body.  The chance to move with abandon and feel the music has been great.  When I started out dancing with Dalya and Yoni
I had no idea that I would make friends of a lifetime.  When I turned 60 this year, my closest friends at dancing made a little dinner for me and bestowed on me a very special gift.  A Baby Einstein Sweater.  Sheila Kirschenbaum, Yairra Haas, Karen Gershenfeld, Judy Rosenthal and Susan Stern each knit a part of the sweater and Sheila put it together and added the final touch of a collar and wonderful buttons.   I was completely impressed with the beautiful sweater and it is one of the most meaningful gifts I have ever had the pleasure of receiving.  I thank you all for this special gift.

At this time I would also like to thank everyone that has participated in this project.  I am so proud of our achievement and our dedication to a cause that not only gives us the opportunity to knit, which we LOVE, but also help those who are in need.
