The other day my family and I went to the Ben-grunion hut. It is where the first prime minister of Israel, David Ben-grunion, retired to. The prime minister of Israel is almost like the president for us. So even though he was like the Israeli version of George Washington, Ben-Grunion retired to a humble house in the middle of the desert. Wow! David Ben-Grunion's dream was to see (or make, in his case) the Negev desert bloom. Even though it has not totally happened yet, the Negev is one of the most settled desert places in the world!
A holiday where bonfires are made. Cats beware! There have been “Incidents” in the past that I am forbidden to speak of. (It has to do with cats). Lag Bo'omer is a Jewish holiday with the the Sephardic custom of lighting bonfires. (The Sephardi are Jewish people who come from the Middle East, and Spain). Now, all Israelis enjoy lighting bonfires. Any way, a big truck filled with wood comes around so people can make this HUGE fires. It is really crazy!
Also recently, we saw a wonderful production of “Hamlet” in Jerusalem by a German company! Our family, along with
We saw this on a second trip to Ein Gedi.
