MD Class of 1997
Joshua Garren ’96 AM, ’97 MD, writes: “I’m back in the U.S. after several years in London and Costa Rica, celebrating 20 years of marriage with Michal Yitshary (Hebrew University ’98) with our five children; Daniel and Ariella (Columbia ’25 and ’26), Maya, Jonathan, and Shira (hopefully Brown ’29, ’33, and ’34). Ariella and Maya’s organization, ParysowProject.org, has published translations of historical accounts of the plight of turn of the century Yemenite Jewry and of Holocaust memoirs from Spanish, Yiddish, Hebrew, and German and is now expanding to help document contemporary accounts of attempted genocide. The Parysow Yizkor Book is a particularly fascinating read.”
