I regret i didn’t teach my grandma to read in Hebrew.
She was born in Libya. when she came to Israel she talked Hebrew, Italian and mostly Arabic.
She was 70 years old when she asked me to teach her to read and write Hebrew and I always promised : “next time”. I was thinking that she was too old. I was wrong.
She was so smart and curious and wanted to read a newspaper in Hebrew. eventually she passed away when she was 102 years old!
