The wedding of Aliza and David was GREAT!!!! A lot of hoopla, and a very beautiful Kallah.
We had a great time, and was glad that it was the beginning of our travels to Israel.
As always, H and R were wonderful hosts, and it was great reconnecting with their many friends.

Hey!! Here we are back on Tchernachofsky, hopefully for the last time!!!!
We got a good night's sleep, and have walked Gan Sacher....twice..
feels good to be back in our routine again, Dad is off to learn for the morning
The Jerusalem clan (and Shauli) are all great.
We may have brought rain with us, as its very cloudy here
thats a good thing!!!
Missing you all back home.

she conceived and she bore

A chumash question- ( this is not rhetorical - i'm looking for an answer) Every time some one gives birth in the chumash it always say "she conceived and than she bore " but with Moses and Zipporah when she gave birth to Gershon it only says she bore - it doesnt say she conceived. Chizkuni says the change in language is because when she was pregnant it wasn't recognizable because she carried small . I find it hard to understand why the Torah would alter it's normal language to teach me Zipporah carried small. When thinking about it , I began to question why the Torah would always say she "conceived " how else would she bear a child? . Thats my question . Why metion everytime that she "conceived " and why leave it out with Zipporah ? Do you feel my confusion?

happy birthday arye

wow. you're getting old.

A slight change in plans

Now that I have the computers and TV's that I ordered for my business, I decided it was time for a real job. I got a call from Josh on Friday and he asked if I knew of anyone that was interested in a full time job managing a project his company was outsourced to do. I thought about it and decided I was interested in the job, and today I got an official offer, which I accepted.

I am not giving up on my company, that would be really dumb now that I actually invested money in it, but I realized that my Hebrew isn't as awesome as I thought it was, and I needed to find an Israeli salesperson. My new job, while full time is flexible hours and working from home, which will allow me to run my company as well.

The next few months should be pretty interesting, going from bumming around most of the time to working all the time. Wish me luck

שבת קדש

shabbos with family is a beautiful thing. those of you in israel probably get to experience more often than us. by family i mean siblings, not parents, because we usually get to spend shabbos with parents just not siblings, and y'all get to spend shabbos with siblings but not parents. anywhoo, the are zacks' davened in mogen avrham friday night and it was very special it was like the abraham brothers who always sit next to each other even though they are well in their grandparenthood, and i got to be in shul with my brother even though we didnt sit next to each other, but for a moment i felt like an abraham brother. we then got to eat together and drink together and laugh and cry together, and play together, and milaine and co. came over and we played with them too. and we had playdoh cookies, and popcorn and oatmeal cookies and jelly belly's or jelly bellies. and then it was time for mincha and we all went our seperate ways and then it was motzei shabbos and i went over to pick things up from the house and i got to see them again, and then tomorrow we will hopefully have brunch at `10:15 and then who knows what that will lead to...
anyone else want to come play?

The STONE that roared

Greetings to everyone from Galus

B"H" I am feeling fantastic- almost euphoric. I dont think going thru a kidney stone attack is exactly worth the great feeling that I now have , but who knows. I am certainly saying "asher yatzer " with more kovanna. I want to thank everyone for their concern and tephillos. May the up comming year be a year of bracha and joy for our entire family and all of Klal Yisrael.
the DAD

Just wanted to wish Arye a יום הולדת שמח as this is his Hebrew birthday. In America we call it Isru Chag, in Israel, it's not even associated with the Chag.
Love, Mom

Who Taught This Kid How to Read?

So we're walking along, done with jumping in all the waterfalls in Ein Gedi, and Nava's running down the mountain, laughing and saying, "Can we go on a Tiyul every DAY???"

She stops short and suddenly bursts out hysterically crying. "What's wrong?" I ask.

"The rocks can fall down the mountain on us!!!!"

"How do you know?"

"It says so on the sign," she cries.

"Wow? She read that?" I wonder to myself.

"Wait a minute, Honey, did you read it in Hebrew or English?"


She is getting so big.

(p.s. Daddy, the hero, offered to walk on the upper-mountain side of the path to block his baby from possible avalanches)
