From Newton to Israel


The Abramowitz-Silverman family of Newton isn't letting the recent turmoil in the Middle East deter them from emigrating to Israel.

"I think this is the right thing to do," said Yosef Abramowitz, who was the founder of Jewish Family and Life, a nonprofit publisher. "Not going is giving into terror."

About 3,000 North American Jews, including 180 from Boston, are expected to emigrate to Israel this year, up slightly over the past year, a story in the Globe's City & Region section reports today.
