My name is Menachem Goldberg. I was born in Israel in 1961, and, as an Israeli, served in the Israel Defense Forces. Following my army service I studied to be a licensed tour guide, and then went off to travel around the world. When I came back to Israel and married, we searched for a place to raise our family (we had one child at the time, today, thank God, we have six). We chose to settle in Hoshaya, a young settlement on the beautiful hills of the lower Galilee, in sight of Sepphoris – the site of the compilation of the Mishnah. Hoshaya was composed, at that time, of thirty-eight families, wonderful people, who had come together to build a new community in the land of Israel.
