Israel Photo of the Day: 1921
On this day in history: March 30, 1921, Winston Churchill made a visit to the British Mandate of Palestine, with key stops at the agricultural colony of Rishon LeZion, and in the new city of Tel Aviv. He praised the Jewish inhabitants for all of the strides they had made in this land, that he had seen first-hand on his visit. This is a photo of Rothschild Boulevard, in Tel Aviv, in 1921. See how sparsely populated that urban center was then! Incredible.
Shabbat Shalom!

Israel Photo of the Day - Garin Tzabar

As we prep for the Summer, another huge experience on the horizon for us during those sweltering months is the completion of another round of Garin Tzabar seminars in America. Garin Tzabar, founded in 1991, is a group formed for Diaspora Jews and children of Israelis who choose to move to Israel and serve in the IDF. Garin Tzabar provides for their participants a community which they may not otherwise receive. Each “Garin”, which means  core or seed in Hebrew, is placed in a hosting Israeli Kibbutz, where they spend their breaks from the army, grow closer with each other and with their kibbutz, and adjust to Israeli life and culture.  
Every August, Garin Tzabar groups which started their seminars in the previous December, make Aliyah, and begin the rest of their lives. We are so proud of them, and we are so excited to see what this Summer brings for Garin Tzabar!

Shabbat Shalom!!!

Israel Photo of the Day - Rainbow over the Mediterranean
One of our favorite views in Israel is the prominent Tel Aviv coastline. The man-made breakers were made of rocks and placed along the shore in the early 20th century, which eventually caused the semi-circle shapes to form in the shore. This photo almost completely encapsulates the serenity we feel when we’re on the beach in Tel Aviv. Shabbat Shalom, and Rosh Chodesh Sameach! Remember, “Mi SheNichnas Adar Marbin b’Simcha”

Israel Photo of the Day - “Friday Evening at the Kotel”

This picture of the Kotel on Erev Shabbat makes us long for Israel. As the saying goes, “Libi b’Mizrach, v’anochi b’sof Maarav” - “My heart is in the East, and I am in the farthest West.” Shabbat Shalom to everyone - have a peaceful and relaxing weekend!
