Eight Years in Israel: Time to Get Serious

“A tradition unlike any other” The Masters Tournament…and my aliyah anniversary blog post. While this one sneaks up on me every year, this is in some ways a bigger deal to me than my Yom Haatzmaut list. One, because I am more likely to be writing it in 20 years, two, because it doesn’t cause […]

Crazy Two Weeks

Well, we’re at war. As has been the case over the last few years, this blog hasn’t been my primary place to post.
