Adventure of a Lifetime!

A young friend of mine is getting ready to move to Israel for ten months to do this program called Otzma. I'm so excited for her I just can't stand it! Oh how I wish I had done something like this.

OTZMA is a service-based leadership development program offering young adults ages 20-26 the unique opportunity to contribute and acquire an in-depth understanding of Israel and the Jewish people.

Check out the program. If you're still of age... you lucky duck!

Enjoy an easy fast . I am reading Robert Spencers myth of Islamic tolerance . Bat Yeor raises some interesting points. She misses the modern Marxist connection to anti semitism.

I totally agree, Gindy.

DM, this is MUCH longer...and you give a lot back.

Haha Patrick. Tell me about it.

SA....ah yes....

Tonight is Tisha B Av . I might write a post about explaining this holiday to the locals. My boss is from NYC and understanding and that is all that matters. Some of my coiworkers have no clue about our people.

I agree seawitch!

DM, I think my pal is doing it for 10 months.

Thanks, Beak. I was raised reform and barely that. Not that I have a problem with that, but I'm now learning more about my own religion so every little bit helps, thank you.

Muse, I helped you out on the double post there. :) I will ask my friend and direct her towards your blog!
