Waiting for Winter

A blog post by Ariela Lerman, Israel Education Coordinator

Lerman.jpgI miss winter.  I know that is has been a mild winter and most people in Baltimore are enjoying the weather, but I grew up in Minnesota.  I need snow in the winter and flurrying and melting on the ground does not constitute snow in my books.  Especially since this is my last winter in a colder climate I would really like a decent amount of snow.  I’m hoping that we will at least get enough snow in the next month or two to make it seem like winter, and if it’s cold outside there should really be snow.

Educate to Advocate

Lerman.jpgIt is almost 2012 and that means that it is also almost time for the Republican primary.  I am not big in to politics and I would not consider myself a Republican but I do watch the debates and what is said about the candidates on the news.  What I find most interesting about political debates and running for president is that no matter what else is going on in the U.S. there is always something about Israel.  All of the candidates want to make sure that their policies are clear and that the public knows where they stand on Israel. 

What it Really Means to Live in Ashkelon

A blog post by Ariela Lerman, Israel Education Coordinator. 

Lerman.jpgThis past week ten educators from nine schools in Baltimore spent time in Ashkelon working with their partner schools.  Every year Gesher Chai provides a teacher exchange so that educators can learn from each other and build exciting new programs.  We have an excellent group of teachers and administrators involved in the project this year.

Israel on My Mind

This week as we prepare for Yom Kippur I tend to think a lot about home.   It is said that a house is the place where you live but home is the place where they accept you no matter what you have done.   My home is really in two places. 

Shalom Shalom!

The past month of August has been an exciting one.  In mid-August our new Shinshinim (post high school young adults who do a year of service before the army) arrived in Baltimore.  Roi Dor and Shani Yamin will take over from Dor Trainic and Ronit Pinsky, all of whom come from our sister city, Ashkelon.
