Yesterday safta Reuma received a certificat from bituach leumi stating she is 100 years old.

In fact she is probably some years older. But back in Sanaa they didn’t issue birth certificates, a 100 years ago. So when her passport was issued it was decided that she was born on 1.1.1910.

She has six children, 24 grandchildren and 15 grandchildren, so far. (Actually she had more children: two children were kidnapped in Israel and part of the kidnapped Yemenite children; one child was killed by a British soldier, because he felt like; one was killed by a snake; and one or two died in Yemen.)

She came to Israel before there was Israel as a state, by foot from Yemen.
