Chutzpah

Anyone who has ever been to Israel knows all about Israeli chutzpa. Chutzpa is a word that is impossible to translate adequately – it’s a combination of outright audacity and the refusal to accept “no” for an answer, but it’s even more than that……A few months ago we were at the Dead Sea and we wanted to make a barbecue. There were very clear signs all over advising that campfires and barbecues were forbidden yet there were many groups enjoying a campfire and/or barbecue. We asked a group…See More

Feeling Like an Outsider

A few nights ago Gavin and I attended a music concert in Jerusalem.  There were not many Anglo's there and I felt completely alien in the environment. At the end of the concert Gavin confessed he felt the same.We have been struggling with culture shock. We spent 8 summers in Israel, countless trips and I lived here in my gap year.

I am trying to use MetroImma to the best advantage, I really am. I am hoping you can help me. I would like to see who from my contacts is already on metroimma so I can "friend" them, without having to send invites to people that are not on MetroImma already. Is that possible? I would love some advice. Thanks!

I love the pics of your kids, and was so interested to read about you I have also helped start two non-profit organizations for Jewish Arts. I am on the board of ATARA, the Arts and Torah Association, we are having our annual conference on the Upper West Side this November 12 -14. It is an all women's event, hope you can come and let people know. Our web is www.artsandtorah.org, our conference is for Jewish women doing Torah inspired performing arts.

Thanks for the request, no I am not friendless! (That is a joke by the way, it is often hard to tell with no tone of voice or facial expressions.) Looking forward to the shiur on the 20th.
