Reflections from Israel by Rebecca Honig
Waking to the smell of cows
Delicious breakfast on a Kibbutz
A donkey ride dressed as our ancestors
Fresh baked bread and coffee as we hear stories
Of the path that leads from Ethiopia to Israel
Stories of absorption. Stories of finding home.
On the bus again. Driving up, up, up with Mustafa.
Now teens from Ein Harold make art with teens from the Berkshires
Wandering through Mishkan Museum
Salvaged art from Europe telling of the pogroms, of the holocaust.
5 Palestinian brothers, painting, sketching, photographing
What it means to be a Palestinian in Israel.
Then to the sandwich club.
Hands from east and west making meals.
Frisbee, basketball, and the very best Shakshuka.
Achiya, Itzik, Manachem, Beit Alfa, Tanya, Daniella
Our hosts along the way.
All in a single day.
