He read many of the classics to prepare to give a lecture on the image of Israel historically in English Literature. Daniel regretted not going to the London theatre more frequently with his family. His work kept him so busy there was little time to enjoy personal moments. He will now be taking his kids to see the musicals and shows before he officially departures from the United Kingdom.
Daniel was known to be a hard worker, but he did take time to meet with some of his favorite local figures. Even if it meant meeting with people that share a different view than his.
