FROM THE EDITOR

Life changes. ESRA life changes. People move. In this issue we read that three of our earliest and most active volunteer leaders have relocated from the center of the country to the north (Carmiel region) and south (Sderot). Two formerly very active branches, dormant for many long years, have been reignited – Hadar (Kfar Yona area) and Modiin. ESRA Magazine has always featured environmental and recycling issues.
