Marcelo Neumann first immigrated to Israel from Argentina at age 10, together with his parents. Two years later, the family moved back to Buenos Aires, but at age 22, he returned to Israel on his own. He didn’t stay very long that time either, returning again to Argentina after just a few years. A month ago, at age 41, Neumann moved back to Israel once again, this time together with a wife and three children.
