Letter 1

Dear Art,

Since it unfortunately appears that you’re never going to make it to Israel, I decided to start sending you some “letters” via my blog.  In each one I’ll note for you various items that I see each day in Jerusalem.  Although I can’t promise, I’ll try as best as possible to only write what I see without adding my own thoughts or interpretations.  This will obviously be difficult but I’ll give it a shot.

Wishing you could witness the miracle with your own eyes.

Your friend.

  1. A pleasure to sicover your blog. Although I’m certain you and I are usually “preaching to the converted” I’ve never despaired from “seeding seeds”, you never know where they might end up.

    On a personal note – since my Aliyah in 1973, I’ve essentially been estranged from my two sisters. Thirty years later, I decided to write a collection of letters, part autobiographical, part things that should have been written but were not. I called that book “The Letters I Never Wrote My Sisters”.

    P.S. At least one of my sisters read every single letter in the collection. That alone made the months of writing worth the effort.

      Thanks Yoel. Regarding your sister that read the letters, are you still in touch with her?

      By the way, where in Israel do you live?
