Blast from the Past

I got this picture today from our cousins Meytal and Sylvia Wasserman in Netanya, who had gotten it from our other cousin David Moscovits in Chicago. None of us is actually sure exactly how David came into possession of this picture, other than that his two brothers are in it.

It was taken during our first family visit to Israel in the Summer of 1985, likely almost exactly 23 years ago to the month, since we were there from mid-June through mid-August.
By Sylvia's recollection, it was taken during a lunch picnic while visiting the model of Second-Temple era Jerusalem at the Holyland Hotel. Interestingly enough, the model was moved to the Israel Museum in 2005 and has been on exhibition with a nifty video and everything since 2006.

From Left to Right are:
Meytal Wasserman, Sylvia Wasserman, Ari, Jessica, Willy Moscovits, Israel (Sruli) Moscovits, Marilyn, Saul, and Moshe Wasserman

I made some edits in Flickr to the original scanned image, and I like this version a lot better than the one I got in the email, which was overwhelmingly orange.
