A Soldier’s Mother: The Lost Wallet

The wallet was found but was it ever really lost when it was always in hands of people who cared?

An Open Letter to the World

Dear World: This morning, a Palestinian woman blew herself up on the road that goes past my city.

Redefining Normal

We would have three minutes if an attack came from Lebanon. Three minutes to get to shelter - and worry about where everyone else is and if they got to shelter in time. That's if the missiles come from Lebanon. I don't know how much time we'd have if the attack came from Syria or Iran...more, less, who knows.

Israel Anew

The greatest thing about leaving Israel is the joy in returning, hearing/seeing/smelling coming home

A Soldier’s Mother: Missing the Boy‏

I told my son the soldier the usual: I love you, stay warm, have a great week-take the brownies

On Election Day in Israel‏

As Israel votes I'll go to an ancient synagogue in India and ask God to guide the Jewish voters

Fighter Jets…

This morning, the jets have been flying and, child that I am inside, I keep going to my balcony and watching them.

So, hey, yeah…we have nuclear weapons

"Israel has nuclear weapons & it isn't afraid to use them if necessary-Does that frighten you? Good"

Ready, Aim…Toast

Yesterday, Gaza supporters began tweeting that Israeli helicopters were randomly firing... I saw the video. It does not look random to me.

School Daze: The Story of a Rocket

Though it missed, the rocket's story is simple: It had 1 target-our children-on school's opening day

A Soldier’s Mother: The Animal has been Caught!

Tzvika was known for greeting shoppers with kindness. He wasn't armed; he was attacked without mercy

United Airlines Breaks Guitars and Other Music (Video)

The songs I like are those that speak to me, tell me a story.

Tea, Chocolate and Running Around…

I asked him how it went - it went fine.

So They Won’t Have to Serve

My son-in-law needs to believe that there will be no need for soldiers in another 18 or so years. Deep down, I want to believe that too.

Grace and Respect

There is, in Israel, a built-in respect for the elderly. But Anthony Cordesman, who gave Professor Yehezkel Dror a prolonged scolding for interrupting him, is apparently unfamiliar with Israeli society. Yes, interrupting someone is bad manners, even rude - and while it isn't loved in Israel, it's just something that happens and we take it in stride. You cut back in, you talk, you communicate. What you never do is embarrass the other person, especially if he's older than you.

On This Day

Ever have a day going along just fine until something comes and floors you? I wasn't feeling well last night and thought of skipping work...but I had to do this, I had to do that...so I came in saying that maybe I'll crash tomorrow. Yesterday morning started sluggish, but I hit my stride and I chugged along happily cleaning things off my desk. I'm tried to watch what is happening with the massive hurricane hitting the U.S.; trying to switch windows, worrying about whether Gaza has decided to fire another rocket at Israel. And then, I saw this message on Twitter and I just stopped and took a deep breath.

A Woman of Courage and Strength

When a doctor told her there was no hope... she decided not to listen.

The Krembo Response!‏

All over Israel today, people are laughing and smiling… It’s a bit ironic because honestly, we’re going through some rough times. A man who had...

Someone, Please Make Bibi Watch this Video

A remarkable video from 1978 showing 28-year-old Netanyahu.

Dangerous Places

I have seen thousands of Palestinians - in our stores, on our trains, in our cities. I have never seen any being harassed.
