In February 2001, Eli met former basketball star, New Jersey Senator and 2000 Presidential candidate Bill Bradley.  Senator Bradley was stunned when someone in the crowd shouted, "Hey, who's that tall guy with Elias Nathan?"

On March 24, 2001, Eli met a very proud great-grandfather, Dov Katzovich from Israel.  He talked about how as a Jewish partisan in the woods of Belarus during World War II, he dreamed that he might one day live to see children and grandchildren.   You can see his emotion at having held his first great-grandchild!
