Keep in Touch

Veteran GISMO members may remember Zvia Naphtali. Zvia taught a GIS course at NYU, started a user’s group there, and eventually joined forces with GISMO. Her husband, Len Naphtali, worked with GIS at DEP and was also a GISMO member. Several years ago Len contracted Parkinson’s disease and they moved to Israel, where Zvia was from. Zvia is preoccupied with the care needed by Len and really misses her GIS teaching and GISMO friends. If you were acquainted with Len and/or Zvia, I am sure they would enjoy hearing from you.

from Jack Eichenbaum who visited the Naphtalis in Israel in April. Contact Zvia at zvia.naphtali@nyu.edu .
