South Africa SIG #SouthAfrica Hillel Rivlin - Cape Town #southafrica
The Rivlin that Beryl is referring to is probably Hillel Rivlin (1922,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Jerusalem - 1989 Los Angeles).
He taught Hebrew in Cape Town in the fifties.
In the late fifties he returned to Israel and later on moved on to Los
Angeles where he died, leaving a wife , son and daughter.
He was the son of Eliezer Rivlin who wrote the Rivlin Genealogy , "Sefer
HaYachas leMishpachat Rivlin" a book published in 1940.
If any Capetonians have memories to share of him , both I and his brother
Rubin Rivlin ( not the Speaker of the Knesset but a second cousin of his)
will be interested in receiving them.
