September 2011 - Milestones Israel

New Beginnings

On Wednesday evening Jews around the world will be welcoming in a new year surrounded by their loved ones. Rosh Hashanah is an opportunity for new beginnings for all man kind. It gives us comfort to know that we can start anew while remembering the past that brought us to this point. Last week, I had the […]

Creating Life

When I learned that I would be guiding a group of Gynecologists from India, my first goal was to understand the importance of gynecologists in the Indian society. It was clear that the “Personal Tourism aspect” of this tour should be the theme of Creating Life. Israel is an amazing place to experience the full meaning […]

The Dan Dan and Lilach Wildlife Center

Israel is full of hidden gems and this particular one can be found in the northern Negev by the Patish stream. This wildlife center, run by Dan Bolotin and Lilach Levy and their four children, cares for and rehabilitates sick and injured wildlife.

Elvis Spotted near Jerusalem

From the moment they entered my car, it was clear that this couple is in love. After 25 years together and four kids, he still adores her and she still sees the man of her dreams. It was a routine tour in Jerusalem with visits to the Arab market, or shuk, the Old City, and […]

Tell Me Who You Are

On September 3, 2011, 406,000 Israelis peacefully marched through the streets of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa in the name of democracy and social justice. I am a proud Israeli. I take my children to see democracy at its peak. I think the best part of this country are the people who live here. I […]
