It’s Yom Ha’atzmaut, which is Hebrew for “go to the park and eat a cow”. It’s all about the mangal (barbeque grill). Much to say about this incredible day…but no energy to put the proverbial pen to paper right now. (Ech omrim “proverbial pen”?)
In the meantime, here’s a recent article I wrote for PresenTense Magazine, a relatively new Jewish monthly mag. The theme of the issue is, what else? Israel’s 60th and the topic of the article is Facebook in Israel. Enjoy…and chag ha’atzmaut sameach!
