She acquired a Masters degree in Special Education from C. W. Post University on Long Island and met Jerry during her studies. Jerry and Marcia were together almost 30 years in thsi lifetime and tens of thousands of years in past lives.
Historically, I was born in Toronto, but never knew what it meant to be spiritual until I was 57. I am 67 now. My childhood, teenage, and young adult years were emotionally ravaged in an unloving, non-nurturing environment. Despite an unyielding anxiety and a neurotic repression of feelings, I succeeded in Academics with a B. Sc. and M. Sc. in Pharmacy. The beginnings of my interest in scientific research and a Canadian scholarship to study abroad caused me to leave Toronto in 1966 for Israel. I completed my Ph.D. in Biophysics in 1969 at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
After finishing my doctorate, I left Toronto for the United States. I wound up as a Postdoctoral Fellow and subsequently as an Assistant Professor of Microbiology at the New York University School of Medicine. In 1973, I moved to Long Island to join the faculty of the Oral Biology & Pathology Department of the School of Dental Medicine at Stony Brook University. In 1982, I was promoted to full professor, and in 1983 I married Marcia. In 1990, I became an American citizen, but the following year I suffered my first bout of Bipolar Disorder at age 50. In 1995, the Manic Depression forced me to take a five year long term disability from Stony Brook, but I returned in August of 2000 to once again take up my professorial duties. In July 2006, I retired and became Professor Emeritus. As stated, I have published seventy-five articles in peer reviewed scientific journals and books, and I at one time held seven U.S. Patents. Unusual miraculous events of Divine intervention, described in both Divinely Inspired and Messiah Interviews, have led me to a spiritual awakening and freedom from Bipolar Disorder. Today, I am seeking inner peace by living each day with spiritual meaning in the Image of my Creator as I have continued to write Gog and Magog: the Devil's Descendants, The Wing of the Butterfly: Memories of Marcia, and with Marcia's soul as coauthor across two worlds, teh physical and spiritual, Putting God Into Einstein's Equations: Energy of the Soul.
