One of the Things I Love About Israel

I took this picture tonight on the bus. We spent a lovely Shabbat in Efrat with family.

It’s after midnight, and I got home not all that long ago.  I really don’t have time to write a “proper post,” so I’ll leave you with the reminder.  The State of Israel may not be perfect. Certainly nobody I know is, including myself. The State of Israel is a Jewish State, and in many ways it’s getting better and better. We must work harder and not give up.

Have a wonderful and healthy and joy-filled week.  Look for the best and not the worst.

  2. I’m not sure which is worse – the people who complained, or the bus company for dropping it….

  3. As an American, my advice is to be proud that you are an Israeli Nationalist… that you love Israel for it's humanity, it's intelligence, it's fairness to all it's citizens, it's unbelievable strength and unity – finally a Nation of their own — and yes with all the flaws and mistakes — and with all the deaths of it's men,women and children by people that surround them and hate them for their success and contributions to the world in science, literature, medicine and technology which is unparalleled in the history of nations.
