Dabush Family (z

Photo taken Tripoli Lybia. Approx : 1930.
My grandparents , Yole and Shalom Dabush. They gave birth to 8 kids, 2 died very early age ( Tamar & Lelio)
In the photo can be seen with them
, their kids : Reuven, Lelio, Vera, Amos.
The photo was taken before my father was born.
My grandfather Shalom, was the accountant of a company in Tripoli and also importer of products such as : Fabrics, Wine, Tuna, Sardines etc, from Italy. He traveled to Italy, that time of his life, in order to import products.
The son, of a very significant rabbi.
My grandmother, Yole, born to a rich family. She was given piano lessons in Tripoli as a kid.
In her character, she was like an actress.. as a girl she performed to kids, that had to give her, the buttons of their cloths, as payment to the show.
In her family were several musician and poet also. One of her nephews became a famous singer in Italy.
( BL, She never met his though ).
The Dabush children learn in 2 schools, Jewish School and Italian school, in Tripoli. ( everyday).
Spoken language at home : Italian.
At schools they study few languages such as : Latin, Italian, Arabic (of Tripoli) and Hebrew a bit.
As Zionists, they gave up all their property and money that came from it, and came to Israel.
The other part of the family stayed in Tripoli, and later moved to Italy. ( in this way could enjoy rich life).
In Memory of my grandparents , Yole and Shalom Dabush and their kids seen in this photo (z"l).
For a blessed memory.
