Come for a Visit In The Sabra Patch

Come for a Visit In The Sabra Patch

But a lot of people aren’t aware of Israel’s other side its creative and colorful side. Even I was surprised to discover that there are hundreds of artists and craftsmen who remain unknown to the international audience.

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?
