Shallow jokes for him, as he told them, grabbed and dragged depth bursts of laughter, which gave the joke shelf life further. … He was never a quarrel. “When he awoke, he immediately wore pink glasses and saw through them the half-full glass, looking for the unifying and less the divider.” It was only natural that when he joined his twin brother in 1990 with political and social activity in Hanoar Avoda, In 1991, Shimshi went on to three magical weeks in Europe, with the delegation of the Association for Democracy Education and Active Involvement in Community Life.In March 1992 Shimshon was drafted into the IDF.

The feeling / month of not having you. ” The family, with the assistance of his girlfriend Einat, published a memorial booklet in his memory.
