Well , you know my name is ophir ,
i was born in 1978 and i lived all my life in a city called petah-tikva (the meaning of the name is "entrance for hope" or something like that) - its one of the oldest cities in israel (founded on 8/8/1878) and it is 20 minutes driving from our biggest city TEL AVIV.
i study computers and economics in the university.
I work as an information security specialist in one of the biggest companies in Israel.
A lot of people ask me "What is the meaning for your name ?" and now i will explain it to you : Ophir (sounds like o'fear) was a kingdom with gold and diamonds in the bible - on king solomon's days.
It can be also translated as "Gold Field".
