Dear Doron, Thank you for a very nice article about Israel Gelfand in your Opinions and for your respect and attitudes towards him! There is only one small mistake. I do not know anyone who could have "turned" Israel into anything or on any path!! As I explained in the Interview from Sept 08 which you liked, he declared first that he is a vegetarian from that very dinner when he said it to me totally unexpectedly. Then he did follow gradually my example of becoming a vegan. But "turning" him in any direction--- LOL! Good luck! All the best wishes, Tanya.
