About Hannah Majaro
pianist. Her son wrote to his third cousin; I was born in Jerusalem and grew up in an environment which included a few Shershevsky's. I seem to recall a Dr. Shershevsky who was one of my father's colleagues (father was a doctor) - one of the earliest Jewish doctors in Jerusalem.
I am the grandson of Shimon Rokach and I bear his name. In fact I am the only male descendant of Shimon Rokach - all the others are girls. My mother was Hannah, Shimon's daughter (altogether he had five children). If you visited Neve Tzedek you might have met my only sister, Leah) who resides in the Rokach old house. She has two sons who also live in Neve Tzedek, next door to the Rokach House which is now a museum in the Rokach's family name.
I am married to Pamela and we have just celebrated our diamond wedding anniversary. We have one daughter, Nadine, who has two lovely young men (Ben and Jonathan) both successful in their respective occupations. The Bak tribe is poorly represented in the UK.
After many years in industry and management consultancy I accepted a chair in the UK's largest Business School part of the Cranfield University.I worked there as a Professor specialising in the Management of Creativity and Innovation.
14 years ago Pamela and I set up a charity seeking to attract children and young people to Chamber Music. We were getting very frustrated that whenever we went to Chamber Music concerts we never saw young people. It has proved to be very successful project but involves us in a lot of work.
