Greatest Advertisement for Israel Yet

Last week President Moshe Katzav hosted 120 Israeli centenarians. On the front page of the paper Makor Rishon, there was a charming picture of Shalom Amrani, 105 (bli ayin hara), with a handsome young man in an IDF soldier's uniform smiling behind him, both wearing kipot.

No, its not what you think. The young man is not his grandson, but his son.

Nechemia, 21, is one of eight children born to Shalom, after he married his second wife.

At the age of 74.

His blushing bride Mazel, was all of 22 at the time.

When asked for the secret to his longevity, he said that he eats a spoonful of honey, a spoonful of oil, and three garlic cloves a day.

I think living in Israel has something to do with it.

And having such a young wife couldn't hurt, either! Wow, good for him!

It's wonderful that Israel has so many centenarians (is that the right word?) to honor, but I have a question: Why would a 22 yr. old want to marry a 74 yr. old???

if we were to compile a list of reasons to move to israel, which would this be listed as?
1. 22 year-old women will still want to marry you and have your children when you are 74.
or
2. the air is so pure here that you will live into your hundreds.
or
3. honey, oil, and garlic are in abundance here. you can either eat them individually or you can make a nice salad dressing.

:D

That's a quietly astonishing cultural feat for a people (let alone for an individual). It would be even more astonishing to hear where, over their 100+ years, these individuals have lived: Jerusalem? Riga? Minsk? Boston? Johannesberg? Tunis? Baghdad? And how many, many points in between???

And in a word, that of course is why devout Muslims hate Judaism: Islam extolls death, Judaism life. But that's too complicated for them.

jeremayakovka - I was disappointed not to have a whole article to link to - it seems that a nice picture was all the editors wanted...I too am curious about their life stories
