My Next Visit to Israel

I’m on my way to Israel. The trip was arranged by Wizo, as part of the prize for my Commitment to Israel award.

We’re going to see charity projects in Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Haifa, and Jerusalem. We’ll also hang out at a cable television station, go behind the scenes at El Al, and tour the Knesset (the Israeli parliament).

I will visit Menachem Begin’s resting place and also spend time in the mystical city of Tzfat, the home of Kabbalah. I’ve often dreamt of visiting Tzfat. I’m so excited to actually go there. I’ll take my Zohar.

I’m going to eat at Dr Shakshuka, and I expect I’ll have an Aroma ice coffee at some point. Probably some Popping Candy Bamba, too. I’ll be staying in Herzliya.

This is my fifth visit to Israel, but it’s been three-and-a-half years since I was last there. Ayin letziyon tzofiyah.
