The hostile, rabid antiJewish environment in [South Africa]... is reflected in the alarmingly decimated Jewish student population in the Theodor Herzl School
I met writer Dvora Waysman a few weeks ago at the crossing in Jerusalem’s Beit Hakerem neighborhood near the Shufersal; I told her then I was a great fan of hers. That status has increased even further after having read “The quotes we treasure” (Reflections, October 18).
“Roses are red...,” “This little piggy...,” “Men seldom make passes...,” Road to... – all were references connected to my growing up. Thanks for the memories, Mrs. Waysman!
Best wishes for a healthy, productive and happy year.

Dvora Waysman’s article was, as usual, inspiring and memory-evoking. As I read it the quote from Shakespeare that her father wrote in her autograph book, it seemed so familiar – and not from any knowledge of Hamlet. I had a flashback and fished out my own autograph book from 1964 that I haven’t looked at for years, and lo and behold, my own late mother – Anne Curzon - had written for me the exact same autograph. I was 12 at the time!
