WHAT’S IN A NAME?
I have much sympathy for Miriam Shaviv ( How I solved my identity crisis, May 23). My sister-in-law and I, both Sally Halon, have been confused with each other for the last 30 years since she married my husband’s younger brother.
I had thought that when she and my brother-in-law made aliyah to Ra’anana 24 years ago that this confusion would cease.
However, I am constantly being asked by friends with Israeli connections why I post so many messages on the Ra’anana messageboards, and the other Sally was met with some confusion at Balfour House in London on a recent visit to arrange her father’s imminent aliyah, when the security guard insisted that she works for Manchester UJIA.
It is a constant source of amusement to us both. Sally Halon (the British one) Gatley, Cheadle, Cheshire SK8
