Bridges between people are built on many levels.  I chose the embrace cultural diversity. and free expression.  I am from a Catholic family of many generations. Around the middle nineties, i befriended Ido Aharoni, Consul for Communications and Public Affairs for the Consulate General of Israel in Los Angeles. I was already a friend of John Rauch, President, Center for Jewish Culture and Creativity. During those years, Ido often invited me to special events.. See attachments
