Grains Of Sand The Fall Of Neve Dekalim

New article in ESRA magazine :)

ShareSo cool! I recently stumbled across my name in the article “Whatever Happened to Gush Katif” by Marsha Stein in the Esra Magazine  as she vividly discusses her tour of the Katif Heritage Center in Nitzan.   Reading it made me feel as though I were once again conducting that tour, it’s spot on! http://www.esra-magazine.com/blog/post/gush-katif Tweet

Purim: learn your booms

ShareAs usual, Purim this year was ushered in with firecrackers, cherry bombs and larger, more powerful fireworks. They were noisy, loud and … they took me back to Gush Katif. At night, lying in bed and hearing the booms, I sleepily wondered whether it was mortars causing the windows to rattle. Mortars – shouldn’t that … Continue reading »

Rabin Memorial

ShareAnd so another Rabin Memorial Day has passed. My problem with these RMDs is the way they’ve been twisted. Instead of being about Rabin – the Man (and then you could talk about the long stretch of his life, the pros and cons, what you admire and what you disapprove of), they are about Rabin … Continue reading »

Reactions to Rockets

ShareIt just hasn’t been my day. Granted, unlike the two previous days, I wasn’t wakened by a blaring siren… so I was spared running within 45 seconds to the protected room and meeting the rest of the family – all as bleary and half asleep, and only the dogs excited at the early morning family … Continue reading »

Singing with Shwekey

ShareI heard the warm-up band playing so I went to have a look. The big basin that used to be Gan Dov had been scraped of all the weeds, and several dozen white plastic chairs had been set up in front of a stage. The obligatory ambulance was parked on the side, and police  stood and chatted … Continue reading »

There are those who wish to commemorate the struggle to prevent the Disengagement. Some of these people continue wearing orange bracelets and flying orange banners.

Dentist Duty & Canine Care

Share  Dental work is so expensive in Israel. I always find myself grimacing after a visit to the dentist … because of what’s charged! Imagine my horror when I discovered that I have someone new to take to see the dentist, the veterinary dentist that is… My sweet Saluki hasn’t been taking care of her … Continue reading »
