Raymond Abraham was born and raised in Bombay, India. He was Secretary of the Halutz movement when the first Jews came to Kibbutz Afikim back in 1949. He was also active in the Tzeirei Yisrael movement.
In India Mr. Abraham worked for Air India. He lived in Israel from 1949 to 1952, but returned to India. In 1974 – on the heels of the rest of his big clan – he moved his own family here to stay.
While in Israel he worked for the Air force at Tel Nof in materiel management. He retired from active employment in 1992, but has been active in volunteer work helping others who have come after him. He is to be seen regularly at ESCA functions, and is an enthusiastic contributor in many ways.
