Israel 2020: Day 1

So great today to be back in the Holy Land of Israel. 


Every time we come, we can literally see how the country has matured and built up even more since just the short time before. 


Of course, we arrived with a little jet lag but still managed to take a nice walk around the bustling streets of Tel Aviv. 


The restaurants, cafes, shops, theaters, and culture here is awesome. 


I guess the toughest thing is deciding what we want to do each day, but that is all part of the adventure. 


See you tomorrow! 😉

Welcome To Israel Henna Party

So we arrived in Israel for our daughter’s wedding. 


It was amazing to me to see how the Holy Land has so developed from when I was here last over 25-years ago.


It is a thriving nation in every sense of the word. 


Just as G-d has promised, the land and it’s people have blossomed under His blessings.


I am grateful to G-d for helping me to reach this wonderful and happy time. 


Tonight, we had a wonderful dinner with the in-laws and there was a henna ceremony as well–for good luck (Mazel Tov)!

Little did I know, I thought this bowl of henna was chocolate fudge and part of dessert–good thing that I didn’t take a staining bite out of that


How would that have looked in the wedding pictures? 😉
