I remember uncle Lenny (as he was introduced to us kids) at my friends’ birthday parties. Smiling and friendly he spoke Hebrew mixed with English. He was the conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra at the time and we were children of its musicians. I’m talking about composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein, who would have celebrated 100 years next month. He inspired us all to go all the way with what we love, to relish and share our enthusiasm with the world.
