In 2012 Joe Castello read in a news magazine that the global population of Jews was only about 13 million, and thereby was inspired to make the study you will find in these pages. He was already fascinated by Jewish culture and the land of Israel, following his visit in 1993.
Joe Castello was born in 1939. He graduated in Pharmacy and now leads a family business that majors on pubs and clubs. He was active in rugby, Judo and ski-ing until common sense prevailed. He still plays in a rock 'n' roll band. He has a son who is diabetic.
