Support Israel Petition
I know a lot of us hate online petitions because a lot of them are phony things that never even get submitted to any lawmakers/people who can make a difference. Even though I have little faith in the U.N., I still believe as many people should sign this as possible. Perhaps if anything, this will show that there really ARE people out there that have faith in Israel and its citizens.

The petition: http://www.hillel.org/supportisrael/?ref=support2

Cross-posted to my journal and various communities.

Has anyone here volunteered in a Kibbutz before? Did you get placed through http://www.kibbutzvolunteers.com or did you just contact the Kibbutz directly and avoid paying that organization $150 extra money?

from a forward... heeheehee
El Al Flight - mid-December - landing in Tel-Aviv As the El Al plane
settled down at Ben Gurion airport,
the voice of the captain came on: "Please remain seated with your seat
belts fastened until this plane
is at a complete standstill and the seat belt signs have been turned off.
We also wish to remind you that using cell phones on board this aircraft is
strictly prohibited."
"To those who are seated, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and hope that you
enjoy your stay.....
and to those of you standing in the aisles and talking on your cell phones,
we wish you a Happy Chanukah, and welcome back home."..

Hey everyone,
I just came across this community and wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Ronit, and i was born in Rishon. I moved to Shoam when i was 9 and to Boston when i was 12.
I am currently a Psych & Management major at Umass Amherst.
I saw a lot of posts in here talking about the army and returning to Israel, which was a very difficult decision for me as well. I went to a program called Garin Tzabar during my senior yr of HS thinking i will join the army right after. At the end of the program i realized that it was best for me to finish college first. It was an extrememly difficult decision because my twin sister and my bf at the time (who were at the same program) decided to join the army; so i had to say goodbye to both at the same time.
I did not abandon my wish to join the army the return to Israel, however. I'm currently working on graduating early (in 2 years total) and joining Garin Tzabar once more in the hope of making it back in '07.

Anywho, drop me a line any time

hi, i have a question about the hebrew name zev.

i need to know how it is spelled, as i recently bought some art with that name on it and i think it might be spelled wrong.

the art is spelled "zayin vav".

but i saw on the net that the spelling should be "zayin aleph vet".

so, can i get away with spelling it the way i have it? or do i need to get it redone?

also, it is possible i can get the vav changed into the vet, but that would mean i'd have to not have the aleph there in the middle.

hopefully someone can tell me if there can be multiple spellings of the name zev. thanks in advance.

Hello everyone
Hello everyone. I did the not uncommon track of moving with my parents to Israel from Russian when I was 5 and then moving to the States 10 years later when I was 15. The move to the States was 19 years ago so all y’all can do the math. I maintained fluency in both languages as far as speaking and reading is concerned (spelling plagues me in all the languages I speak, including English). Would be interesting to meet ex Israelis in general and people with a similar life itinerary as mine. I certainly can be fairly culturally native in Russian and Israeli cultures with American being a close second. I live in Cambridge, Mass.

Hi everyone!

My name is Nurit and I was born in Hadera. I lived in Israel off and on until the age of 9 when I moved to Seattle. I'm now 25 years old. I miss Israel SO much! I dream of going back someday. I understand hebrew but reading and writing are difficult for me. I sound like every other person that crosses these boards from what I have read :) I also feel more Israeli than American but appearance wise you'd never know I was middle eastern (half Iraqi by blood).

anyways, just wanted to introduce myself. Also glad to have found a community such as this. It would be fun to meet some other people like I in the Seattle area!

I just joined this a few minutes ago so I feel like introducing myself lol. My parents were from Russia, and they moved to Israel before I was born. Then when I was six, I moved to the US... I basically forgot most of Hebrew because we only spoke Russian at home =( I can still read a lot of basic words and get the "gist" of what people are saying. I've been to Israel the past two summers and it's really awesome there, and I just thought it would be cool to talk to someone from Israel... So... yeah lol

Current Mood: okay

Hi everybody, I am Nira, I'm 16, and I live in Arizona. I was born here, but i have gone back and forth a lot. I reald and write Hebrew fluently, and I used to speak also, but i lost a lot of it. (I can still understand though). I went back this summer for the first time in a long time, and while I expected a feeling of satisfaction, it only made me wonder even more where I belong. I stayed with my best friend in Kiryat Gat, and I felt so at home and so safe there that now back here I feel out of place. In December my friend in Tzahal from Kiryat Gat was killed in Gaza, and now I feel terribly guilty for being here. I think thatI want to finish school and even college here, but from there I think that I might want to go back, for good. I thought I was alone in feeling out of place, and I'm glad to be in this journal to know that I am not alone.

Study in Israel

My name is Gahl. I've been living on the outskirts of New York City since '98 and I'm 16 years old-- a Junior in High School. I'm just beginning my college-search process and I'm starting to seriously consider study in Israel. I speak and read fluently, and I do write, though not on a college level ( I am, however, improving. I do at least 2-3 hours of work a week on Hebrew grammar and language with my father, who is a Hebrew professor.) I'm a theatre major in my magnet high school program and I'm wondering if any of you know of any theatre programs (such as the one in Tel Aviv U.) that also feature strong academics and aid for ktinim chozrim , returning minors. I see myself returning to Israel, which is truly my home, but I'm not sure if I should pursue to get my Bachelor's degree and primary theatrical training-- I'm an aspiring director-- in Israel. Whoever knows a lot about this subject or has any information, please do contact me . You can comment on this, on my own livejournal or IM me at VenusiinFurs .

Thank you,

Hi, I just joined. I'm May (as in My, not May, but you would know that). I'm Israeli- moved from Nof Yam (near Herzelia Pituach) to Dallas, Texas when I was 11 for a "three year stay" (whatever) and I'm now 18 and I go to University of Texas at Austin.
I really want to move back to Israel already, but I'm waiting for citizenship and will probably just finish college here. I have a big guilt trip going about not doing tzava but I'll get over it.
I'm also scared I'll move back to Israel and not be able to take it. You can work and live in America being in such a daze all the time. In Israel, I'd have to live in the real world. Hopefully that works out.
I'm very Israeli, except I don't listen to Israeli music or talk in a lot of slang or think that anything Israeli is TOTALLY AWESOME. I just live my life in a rather "Israeli" way I suppose. I don't eat my pancakes with butter and syrup. I'm not polite. I tell people they are "Amerikakim." Meh.
Also, my parents are kibbutznikim from Eilon and Chulata. I've lived in Herzelia, Tel-Aviv, and Nof-Yam.

my name is guy, my mother is israeli. i was born in south africa but i live in the united states right now. i can speak hebrew fairly well, but i wish i could actually read and write. being able to speak a bit better would be nice as well.

it's nice to have found a community like this, because i think there are many others in the same situation - those with israeli parents who have moved away or don't live in israel at the moment.

hi all,

I just found this community, and... and... blah, it just gave me this sadness in my heart, nostalgia for israel i guess. I wanted to write a nice introduction post (hello! I am Lisa! I am half-Israeli on my mom's side, Hebrew-speaking on both sides, the first in any of my family born in America, so nice to meet you all! smile smile!) but, well, I am not in that kind of mood right now, sorry ;)

I more want to say, I don't know, it's nice to read some of these posts reflecting how I feel in a lot of ways. Talking about the guilt of not living there, and this feeling of split identity, and it's comforting, cause sometimes other people just don't understand. I feel like a traitor in some ways and also like I'm doing the best I can, and that I can contribute in other ways... I don't know. My aunt is visiting us from Hod HaSharon this weekend and she noticed that my Hebrew's less smooth, and she was like, "you've betrayed your language! It's because you've been living abroad and not speaking Hebrew!" Did she have to use that word?!! Argh!

That's all I guess. It *is* nice to meet you all. =)

I attend Columbia University in New York City, and work also work full time in addition (which is a huge pain in the ass!!!).

Its always great to meet and talk with other Israelis :-)
