Gaby and I spent some time in Israel this summer. She participated in a four-week JNF community service trip for American teens. I took a course on Jewish spirituality at Hebrew University. Later on, we met up and traveled together some more, but we also tried to visit as many of our relatives as we could. Here are some photos from our trip.

Eitan is looking out over the Hula Valley. Over the last 6 decades, he has played a major part in its transformation into Israel’s agricultural backbone.
