Marc and Harriett Levin
I sat down in Jerusalem with Marc and Harriett Levin of Bucks County, the parents of fallen Israel soldier Michael Levin. Michael Levin was killed during the second Lebanon war, after volunteering to serve in the Israeli army. Now, the Levins have returned to Israel to commemorate Michael during Israeli Soldiers’ Rememberance Day.
Jerusalem Stone City
After the Levin interview, I wandered past the Great Synagogue of Jerusalem. This is me, chatting about the building laws that make Jerusalem such a unique-looking city.
The Ride Back
My Uncle Doryon gives me a ride back to the house.
Itay Rock Star
Hadas’s cousin is cool! I hang out with Itay as he plays the guitar. Doryon watches and Neta hides under the covers.
The day of interviews continues… but first, we take a look at the beach. Aunt Judy (aka Yehudit) helped me out so much this day by driving me to my interviews, and Neta comes along, too.
Marta Mozes Wants To Party!
Hadas chats with Tel-Aviv University student Marta Mozes about how Israelis differ from Americans — and about the upcoming Independence Day holiday in Israel.
In Israel, security guards aren’t there to check for IDs… they’re there to check for bombs.
This is Mike’s Place, a popular Tel-Aviv bar known as a hang out spot for foreigners — especially English-speakers — that was bombed in 2003. The sister bar to this spot, the one located in Jerusalem, was a place I used to hang out in a lot with my friends when I studied there in high school.
The deputy mayor of Tel-Aviv Yafo, and daughter of Moshe Dayan, one of Israel’s founding fathers, opens her home to me for a sit-down interview.
