Benny's birth mother abandoned him during the Yom Kippur War in 1973. Who was she? God only knows. I was his baby nurse at theWIZO Baby Home in Jerusalem. Benny and I bonded instantly, each with our own need to give and receive love. Before Benny turned two, a good family adopted him and I have not seen him since. His impact on my life, however, was and still is so strong that I felt compelled to write a trilogy based on a baby boy abandoned at birth. Is he Muslim or Jewish? Again God only knows, but he grows up (in my fiction) to be the 12 Imam, the Hidden Mahdi.
