Blog Posts from Visit to Israel

Dear Friends,

20160818_113610.jpgLast week from Thursday through Sunday night, I spent four crazy busy and hectic days in Israel while on a visit to my cousin’s beautiful wedding. While it was a short visit in terms of the amount of time I spent there, it was rich in experiences and special moments.

Below I will share a few anecdotes and highlights from the visit which I hope you will enjoy.

The trip itself didn’t go all as planned, with my connecting flight to Philadelphia to get to London getting delayed and me being put on a direct flight to London. Sounds good right? Well my luggage got lost somewhere and is currently still floating around the airports of Europe.

Visit to Victims of Terror

A Life Lesson from a Broken Alternator

In seconds, all the other dials and lights in the car were flashing or flying all over the place and it was obvious that we have a problem so we pulled into a service station in North Pembroke.

As we waited for Triple AAA to arrive I explained to my kids that besides the fact that we have a mechanical problem,  the fact that we ended up in this specific place as part of our journey must be for a reason, and as a result we should do something good and meaningful while we are hanging out. We then studied something together and made alternative plans… Read More »
