Hello Kimberly,
I will be in touch via email soon about this and I will give you the name of a cousin who has a lot of information about our huge family. Who knows, we might be related! :-)

Kymberly Ross Israel

I came across your blog as i was trying to gather information for my daughter to do an ancestry report on the island of Rhodes. My husband's family is also ISRAEL. His grandfather Eli Israel grew up on Rhodes and left in the mid 1930's as a young man and settled in los angeles. We are also directly related to the Scapa and Hazan families and many of us live in Los Angeles.
I wonder if you are related to my husband's family.


Hello there Jacquie! How wonderful to find you here. Yes indeed. We have met. In fact, if my memory serves, you taught me about how long "pepper" hangs out in one's body!
Thanks so much for your comment. Am so sad to hear about Hasday, but grateful to know. I will write you a private email.
Best wishes.

Jacquie Israel

Hi Tamar,
I'm sure I met you in Cape Town and later in Israel many years ago. I recognize the photos you have of Rabbi Israel which appear to be identical to those my late father Hasday Israel had, including the original silver handle of the walking stick featured in the picture. I also recall coming across correspondence between you(?) and my father after he died. Anyway, my brother Andre and I have been discussing the fact that we must add the latest information to the family tree in and will have to get around to it. Sincerely, Jacqueline Israel, Sydney, Australia.


Thanks so much for your comment on my blog.

What other information do you have about your family?

How interesting. We might very well be cousins!
