Managing Director of the Alzheimer Center

Re: Mr. Amnon Shamosh’s Book Launch

I would like to sincerely thank you for Amnon Shamosh’s book Boker Tov Altz Heimer and for the invitation to attend his book launch.

With his immense talent, Amnon managed to recount from his close perspective the complex coping with the Alzheimer’s disease that afflicted his wife. The book opens to the reader a fascinating window into the small, difficult, and special moments that they grappled with for a dozen years.

It’s impossible not to be moved and amazed by the immense devotion and intense love between Amnon and his afflicted wife, as he describes how he fell in love again as a “threesome”, in the presence of such a burdensome disease. This is a very inspiring book.

I apologize for not being able to partake in the event, and wish you and the author much success.

Best wishes,

MK Yuli (Yoel) Edelstein
