Photo Friday (vol. LXXXIV) [welcome home edition]

Just an aside... getting off the elevator at the airport I noticed that all the points of interest were identified in both Hebrew and Arabic... except the Synagogue.  Heh heh.

Anyway... enough foolishness.  Please say hello to Israel's newest Citizens:
And yes...  you are not mistaken.  They are holding their 'Teudat Oleh' (immigrant book/certificate) upside-down.   Next week we are going to get them signed up for an ulpan (a Hebrew language immersion class).  :-)

Shabbat Shalom.

I'm, of course, very very happy for all of you. Just one question: will there be any way now to limit them to voting far far left in only one country?

Dr Bean - PLEASE. Someone has to offset YOU people! :)
Shabbat Shalom.

Thanks for the photo. Mazal tov!

Mazeltov! It will make such a difference for you all to have your parents living so close. Wonderful particularly for the children to be able to grow up with their grandparents around, and for the grandparents to be able to enjoy the company of their grandchildren almost daily. I hope everything goes really happily and smoothly for you all. It looks a lot like fun already..

Good Shabbos

Wow - what a resemblance between Gilad and your father.

Congrats again to your parents.

Congratulations to your folks David, they could start by learning how to say ani lo madaber ivrit ;-)

Come on - you put them up to holding it upside down, didn't you?

Posted by: westbankmama | Nov 18, 2006 6:28:50 PM

Val: Us people? You mean politically conservative modern Orthodox Jews? That ammounts to just me and my wife. Just the people in my synagogue more than offset us people. It has nothing to do with that.

I was just curious if your parents (may they be well and live long) were going to impose ideas that have been proven wrong over 30 years ago on two defenseless democracies, rather than just one. :-)
