Eli’s artistic skills were honed from early days, having spent many of his childhood days with a Russian painter by the name of Meir Appelboim. Meir was a lonely elderly Russian artist who Eli met through his school community activities when he was 15 years old.
Thank you's from Eli
“Meir, for all you taught me with so much love. And to my dear Literature high-school teacher Mrs Dvora Silverstone. She was the first person to acknowledge my gift and open her heart to see my talent. I will never forget her belief in me and the sensitivity and patience she had with me. The full story of me as a child in Mrs. Silverstone’s classroom is written in the introduction to my book – ‘Living in History’.”
