Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach – Next year may I be in the USA

May this day be for a blessing to you and yours, it certainly is one for me.

Today I walked the streets of Tel Aviv alone as Ovik and Armen wanted to go to the beach one last time before we go back to Armenia. As I walked the history of our people wrapped me in the gentle blanket of a story as old as time and as new as today. My age and life were folded into the age and life of the world around me. It was a glorious day.

Tonight I make my new Shabbat dinner of chicken curry with rice and then I will go to services at the Great Synagogue. It is a good life and such a great adventure.

Thank you all for being part of it.
