Last night my cousin Feri hosted a dinner at the Futemute Restaurant in Budapest in honour of his son Aaron’s birthday. Futemute is a Jewish themed restaurant.
At the same time, 2nd cousins Feri (Budapest) , Mehmet (Istanbul) and Eli (Perth), great grandsons of Leib and Fora Feige Zeldin of Dvinsk, Latvia met. A historic occasion!
Other out of towners who attended were Billur, Mehmet’s wife from Istanbul, Neil from the UK, Ronen and Shachar, my nephew and his daughter from Israel, and Fanni and David, Feri’s daughter and son in law from New York.
