There aren’t enough or definite words to express my pride in being a Jewish woman. Grateful to have witnessed the establishment of Israel, and its contributions to the world.

Interesting Fact

The dodecahedron commonly known as the Star of David is also the electron microscope signature of the element Silicon, which is a major component of the Earth's crust.
