Support from the inside.

Since motzei Shabbat, I, like everyone else, have been watching as Gaza, the news and - at least my - inbox have exploded. And by inbox, I really mean all forms of electric communication. I'm getting messaged, emailed, SMS'd, tweeted: Help organize food and supplies to Israeli border towns! Host a family from the south!... Continue Reading →

We are more computers than people.

Fun stat: Israel has more computers per person than any other country, according to The Economist. Yes, I am surprised, despite knowing that Israelis are very into technology and hi tech is a major industry here. It may be a country of technology, but at times it feels five years behind.

Even with the Hebrew dated agenda book I keep.  I did have some clues that Chanukah was quickly approaching though: sales on candles, this... Continue Reading →

An *enlightening* discovery.

Then, a couple weeks ago, I was walking through Talpiot when from the corner of my eye I spotted the... Continue Reading →

Bigger.

I just returned from a week in the States. Flew out for work, but I wasn't going to let an opportunity like that go by without doing some shopping. What kind of Israeli would I be? What kind of woman would I be? And most importantly, what kind of pregnant Israeli woman - who doesn't... Continue Reading →
