Home, Identity and Connection

I am an Israeli in the United States and an American in Israel. Which place is really home?

The Truth About Israel

The Truth About Israel

From the very day it was re-established in 1948, Israel adopted a policy of equality for all. A country that protects members of the LGBTQ community, the rights of the women and those of minorities who live here, the beauty of a democracy is that there is always room for improvement.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

How many of us have ideals that we will go to that extent to protect? Do we even think about them, or are we too busy getting by another day, making enough money, studying for that test, eating that sandwich or reading that book?

Taking a Step in Unity with the Law on Our Side

Taking a Step in Unity with the Law on Our Side

Diane Bederman discusses how it is time for the Jewish people in Israel and the Diaspora to come together and demand that the Israeli government - declare Israel’s legal rights under International law using every possible legal means.

Have you heard? The Jews have a secret weapon…

Have you heard? The Jews have a secret weapon…

We’re an old people who have seen empires rise and fall for thousands of years, and despite the violent storms of intolerance that rage around us, or the arctic winds of pessimism that blows through us, or the prophets of doom who continue to preach that we will not survive… despite all of these things, we’ve somehow been able to remain a part of this earth, thriving not withering. Standing tall and making our mark in the world, not vanishing in the desert sands of time. Under fire – for sure! Under threat – absolutely! Disappearing – not a chance!

A Slice of Life Here in Israel

A Slice of Life Here in Israel

We are, after all, family in this crazy place we call Israel. And that we call home.

Unleash the Zionist within you

Unleash the Zionist within you

Get out there, armed with facts, fight lies with truth and wave your Israeli flag as if your life depended on it because, actually, it just might.

Fools to the left of me, jokers to the right

Fools to the left of me, jokers to the right

Now is the time when the Israeli nation needs to chuck its political differences out of the window and stand united against terror. In its fight for survival, Israel needs to put her best foot forward and practice some good old-fashioned unity.

Thirty Five Heroic Men

Thirty Five Heroic Men

Why is this hike called the “Lamed Hey”? What is the significance of Thirty-Five? Why is it historic? Why do thousands of teens give up a night to hike up barren hills in the Judean Mountains each year?

This Flag is My Flag

This Flag is My Flag

Today, I’m proud to see the Israeli flag as I travel around Israel. It’s a constant reminder that we’ve established the Jewish State, and I’m proud of how far we’ve come.

Hatikvah - הַתִּקְוָה

Hatikvah - הַתִּקְוָה

When the State of Israel was established in 1948, Hatikvah was unofficially proclaimed the national anthem. As titled, "The Hope", this anthem speaks of the establishment of a sovereign and free nation in our homeland, the Land of Israel.

I Am Sure (a few things I know in an uncertain time)

I Am Sure (a few things I know in an uncertain time)

I am sure that when nothing is done to stop the systematic hatred that’s been spoon-fed to an entire population, hatred that depicts Jews as monkeys, Jews as Nazis, Jews as the cause of all that is wrong in the world, Jews as targets for every form of animus, and every manner of violence, I am sure that we have descended again, into a nightmare world where good and evil have become irreversibly mixed, irrevocably obfuscated.

In defence of all of us

In defence of all of us

I entered that hall as a stranger, but left as a proud and confident member of the Jewish people. Never before did the words Am Yisrael Chai mean so much.

Finding My Israeli Identity in Hebrew

Finding My Israeli Identity in Hebrew

The more time we spend here, the more I believe that being fluent in Hebrew is my key to unlocking my new identity.

Salute to Our Veterans

Salute to Our Veterans

I thought about our residents and felt they would be interested in learning more about it for a number of reasons. I knew that our “senior veterans” would relate to the experiences of a young American soldier far away from home and family.

A Collective Jewish Memory

A Collective Jewish Memory

It has often been said that Jews have long memories. Memories that stretch back through the pages of history, unravelling the chapters of the past, reaching out to our humble beginnings. It is an obsession of ours – the energy force that governs our every action.
