'Only in Jerusalem' is a phrase many visitors to the city repeat but this time, it was 'only at the Begin Center'.

This past Thursday, NY State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and his wife, Shani, with their son, visited the Museum. By the time they emerged, Helen Friedman of American for a Safe Israel had arrived, accompanied by Batya Medad, wife of Information Resource Director Yisrael Medad. They were coming to meet the sister and brother-in-law of Yisrael, Debbie and Dr. Tzvi Briks.

As it turned out, Tzvi had driven Dov to the airport in New York back in 1973 when Dov set out to visit the Soviet Union and so they had a bit of a reunion.

Here are, from l-r, Helen Friedman, Shani Hikind, Dov Hikind, Yisrael Medad, Debra Briks, Dr. Tzvi Briks:
