Hello to any and all who may be actually reading this. I've been off doing Pesach (Passover for those of you still in the Diaspora) for the last few days, which is quite an experience in Israel. Its kind of like Christmas, all the stores close, people have two days off work, people talk about it on the TV and radio for weeks beforehand...It brings home how unique Israel is in the world. Its the one place where Jews can go and feel not only a part of Jewish life, but a part of the larger society as a whole, and not just a tiny minority group. It was quite an experience.
