Wordless Wednesday ~ Shmuel Leib's Family in Israel

I previously shared a bit about the Goldstein (or Yancu) cousins in Israel. The man in the photo below is Shmuel Leib, the younger brother of husband's maternal grandfather, Morris Goldstein.


The back of the photo has a note in Yiddish. Again, I am grateful for the JGSGB (Jewish Genealogy Society of Greater Boston) "Annual Help Day" where members volunteered to help with translations, as well as those who helped out at the Tracing the Tribe Facebook page.


The translation of the Yiddish on the back of this photograph is:
    From me
    Ethel and
    both dear [or Bluma's or beautiful?]
    children for you
    Rosa
      Shmuel Leib
    15/1/67 [15 January 1967]

A couple of comments: 1. It is possible this photo was taken in 1964 (which is upside down at bottom left), and 2. "for you Rosa" refers to Rose (Levitt) Goldstein, who would have been the recipient of the photo, receiving it after her husband (and Shmuel Leib's brother), Morris Goldstein, died in 1965.
