“Our Thoughts” by Marion and Paul Silberman (New York)
How delightful it is to be in Israel again. We feel perfectly safe in Tel Aviv. We’ve already walked on the Tayelet (Promenade) along side the beautiful sea. The is sunny and balmy. We have a most intense and emotional experience re-visiting Independence Hall. A Birthright group was there, joining with our group, and we enjoyed talking to the young people and were moved by their very positive response to the presentation and to Israel On our way out a Christian group was entering and we expressed our appreciation for their love and advocacy on Israel’s behalf. We then toured a historic part of Tel Aviv and Rabin Square. We ended the day being treated to delicious “low calorie” yogurt enhanced by hot fudge! YUM!! In the evening, Amotz Asa El, a journalist and former editor of the Jerusalem Post, presented a most informative and interesting analyses of the situation in Gaza, as well as the political outlook in Israel with the upcoming elections. We feel very fortunate to be here at this time.
Enjoy some pictures of our day!
Love to all our family and friends.
Paul and Marion
