My full name is Rivka Temima Kellner, though in Israel it would be pounced  Ree-vka Temeema .
I was born in Newportnews Va.  In 1975 to my father a professor of Jewish thought and my mother then a nurse and my brother Avinoam who was then four days shy of four [I think he wished I came with a clear return policy].
When I was three we came to Israel for a year that we spent in Jerusalem and the second floor of the same building my parents live in to this day.
The next year we spent in Richmond Va. I have fuzzy memories of that year.  A bit from kindergarten and the synagogue and my slide in the back yard, also bits and pieces of the surgery to fix crossed eyes.  
We moved to Israel when I was five, so I don't really remember learning Hebrew. I still have friends I met that year in kindergarten. We were now living in the ninth floor of the same building a year later when I was in first grade in Rambam [Maimonides] primary school – a state funded orthodox school, to this day I pray in a synagogue nearby.
For High school I started out in the city run high school simply called P.S. 6,  it was orthodox but was not for me. So for ninth grade I moved to the semi-privet Eulpenat  Segulah [unique quality] a much more student oriented school in Haifa's  bay suburbs [the only time I had a weather related free day from school was when the rode was flooded one really  wet winter].  While I was in High school Sadam Husain invaded Kuwait and life in Israel  really invaded my life for the first time, when I had to seal myself inside a room and wait for bombs to land on my city.  
Will post more later…
