It was a pleasure to sit down on the rooftop of the Post Office Hostel in Jerusalem with Mordecai Holtz. As the founder of Blue Thread, his main brand is Jerusalem’s main tourism website, ITravelJerusalem.com.
This past Shabbat, we were sitting around the dining room table enjoying the delicious foods I had cooked based on everyone’s specific preferences. Roasted asparagus for my oldest, pumpkin muffins for my son, and cauliflower for his twin sister, just to name a few. Conversations ensued, expected fights amongst the kids broke out, and laughter and giggles over the silliest things filled the room.
These are Pesach (Passover) Memories that will last a lifetime:
Watching as the heart-shaped ices drip down your cheeks and arms, splashing onto your toes that are peeking out of your open toe sandals.
So it’s been 7 ½ months since we moved to Israel and let’s call a spade a spade. I’ve pretty much been on vacation since we got here. Well, I have been extremely busy with life- wife, mother, household, volunteering, blogging…but I haven’t needed to answer to anyone, i.e. a boss. No one is demanding that I get into the office by 8am. I am on my own schedule- at least just for this year. And I am so grateful that I have had this opportunity to really acclimate the family to life in a new country.
