Life Here

Just to keep you posted...

  • Yesterday it RAINED. In NYC we get upset. Here, it's a celebration!

  • I served my toranut (volunteer duty) in the dining hall tonight...

    1. I really enjoyed it. I think this may have been what was lacking in my time here.

    2. I was washing dishes, or unloading after they got washed in the kitchen “car wash” thing; reloading the supplies in the dining hall; sweeping; and cleaning. It was really a lot of fun. And, it was another way for me to interact with the members here.

    3. Best of all, I dropped and broke a few plates and the entire chadar ochel started clapping and yelling “mazal tov!” I felt like I was in camp again…it was quite exciting!

  • They had a memorial service for Yitzhak Rabin tonight, but I missed it because I was getting covered in food slop, while cleaning the kitchen.




Life here doesn’t really change. I must get off of Kibbutz to bring you more worldy wisdom.

Shoutout # 37: Seffi Kogen – It was a pleasure seeing you the other week. Thanks for all your help, even though none of it really worked out in the end. Until you told me, I didn’t realize how much I’ve influenced you. I’m sorry. But, if you ever need a ride, you know who to come to!

P.S. Seffi has requested that I "pimp his blog," so feel free to check it out @
