A little introduction: Ira Monosson is one of our extended Monosson relations. As you all know I am a bit of a genealogy "freak"... a little less lately as Adobe PS has taken over a lot of my time. Ira is from the Max Monosson line... who was from Moscow. We don't yet know how all the various Monosson lines are connected but I am positive that all Monossons are FAMILY.
Ira wrote:"We are well except that Aviva's mother died on January 1, 2006 at the age of 96. Aviva still is the career counselor at Culver City High School. Elana was married on November
21, 2005, and she works as a realtor. Danielle has been a diplomat with the State Department since 2002. After learning Turkish, she spent two years in the US Consulate in Istanbul. For the past 19 months, she has been assigned to the economics section of the Near (Middle) East Branch of the State Department in Washington, DC. One of her projects has been serving on a team that is trying to end the boycott of Israel by the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait. She has been to the Persian Gulf regarding this last year and again this year. Ari ran in the Macabbi Games again in 2005 and won a silver medal. He is a young businessman here in Los Angeles. I semiretired in 2003 and work 1 1/2 days a week, sometimes less. I keep busy with volunteer work."
I met Ira and Aviva several years ago when their son Ari ran in the Maccabi games. I also met his daughter Danielle when she visited Israel.
