Homies away from home.

How do you say ‘Jersey Gardens’ in Hebrew?


Like doing army service or eating Bamba at five months old, in carrying Israeli citizenship I am eligible to enjoy a popular Israeli pastime: shopping in New York.

Or is that New Jersey? We spent today stocking up on good-quality crap at a Garden State outlet mall, and my compatriots were everywhere. Cooing at what good deals there are at H&M. Shrieking in the fitting rooms at the Gap. Selling Dead Sea products in the kiosks.

Vacation from Israel? Just not possible.
