They met in Israel and married in the United States in a ceremony performed by the groom’s brother, Rabbi Yerachmiel Carmi.

They are the proud parents of four daughters — Naomi, Ronit, Zipora and Tamar — and the kvelling grandparents of 14, ranging in age from 7 to 29. Their 55th anniversary and Michael’s 80th anniversary were celebrated during Thanksgiving week with a three-generation family cruise.

The family gives much thanks to God.
