Ilya and his Babulya
Here is Ilya again but this time with his "Babushka", his Grandmother. Ilya's Grandmother's name is Tsilya, she is nearly 93 and immigrated here along with Ilya and his family in the early 80's. Bubushka Tsilya was one of the very first Jewish women dentists in all of Russia!(She never went to dental school though) She taught Soviet soldiers how to shoot riffles during World War II ! How you ask, was she in charge of teaching Soviet soldiers to shoot riffles? She says she learned in dental school! Don't ask, we don't get it either. Ilya's Babulya is a great babulya.
