Hey guys,

here in this private section you can read and learn something about me 😎

What I like, what I do not like, what kind of movies I love and what kind of a character I am and much more. You'll find out that I'm a guy with way too many interests. 😜

Well, if I would describe myself in 6 words it's :







My Loving Parents

Benzion Michailowitsch Kandov

( * April 10th, 1945 - January 9th, 2015 )

My unforgettable father was not only my father, he was my best friend, my biggest supporter and my helping hand in any way.

Our father/son - relationship was simply unique.

A "One of Kind" character.

You always believed in me and you really admired my inquisitiveness and my idle curiosity about our family roots. It's a special character trait that I have from you.

I love you more than words can EVER express

and I miss you every single day.

Always my hero.

Rest in Peace Daddy.



Svetlana Kandov

( * April 4th, 1960 )

You cannot describe the love from a mother. A mother is truly "holy".

The Support and love she gave me during my teenage years, my school years and my university years was and is just amazing. Although it was so hard to take care of three little (tough) boys in her early years, she managed it perfectly. In really difficult times my mother achieved true greatness.

She was, is and will always be, the most important person in my life.

You can't ask for a better mom.

I love you so much!



... Those who honor their father will have joy in their own children, and when they pray they will be heard. Those who respect their father will have long life, and those who honor their mother obey G-d; they will serve their parents as their masters.

Honor your father by word and deed, that his blessing may come upon you. For a father's blessing strengthens the houses of the children, but a mother's curse uproots their foundations. Do not glorify yourself by dishonoring your father, for your father's dishonor is no glory to you. The glory of one's father is one's own glory, and it is a disgrace for children not to respect their mother.

My child, help your father in his old age and do not grieve him as long as he lives; even if his mind fails, be patient with him; because you have all your faculties do not despise him. For kindness to a father will not be forgotten, and will be credited to you against your sins; in the day of your distress it will be remembered in your favor; like frost in fair weather, your sins will melt away.

Whoever forsakes a father is like a blasphemer, and whoever angers a mother is cursed by G-d.
