Revealing: Light Unto Another World

Well, I was originally going to wait a bit longer for this, but Yom Ha’atzmaut seemed like a pretty appropriate time. Today we celebrated the re-establishment of the state of Israel, which played a major role in ushering in a new era for the Jewish people, and revived the image of the fighting Jew, somethingContinue reading “Revealing: Light Unto Another World”

Life Paths, and D-Day

So, those who follow me on Twitter might’ve seen that I had a rather interesting day here. After months of no’s regarding my desire to extend my IDF service, I finally got a yes–of course, after I did the entire discharge process. Thus, I was a civilian again for about an hour today. Now, I’mContinue reading “Life Paths, and D-Day”

And tomorrow, that dreamContinue reading “Duty, Sacrifice, and What to Expect Going Forward.”

This is just something that needs to be said. This is not meant to be an authoritativ treatise on the subject,Continue reading “Real Talk: Being Honest About The Situation in Israel”

Personal Musings: 2016 Wrap-Up (And What to Look Forward to in 2017)

So, I was seeing lots of people writing 2016 wrap-up posts, so I figured I should do the same, even if it is a bit late. (And, also, this allows me to get something new up here while I keep working on a pair of longer posts that are taking longer than expected.) So, 2016,Continue reading “Personal Musings: 2016 Wrap-Up (And What to Look Forward to in 2017)”
