The neighbors’ homes were damaged,

but already a few days after the bombing, they were replacing windows.

Though Israelis repair quickly and move on after a terror attack,

their families can never forget.

Being in those ruins, I find it hard to forget.

Please let us at least remember the dead once a year.


Real Jstreets

I lived in the United States, Canada and Australia before moving to Israel in the midst of the Second Lebanon War. For the last ten years, walking the streets of Jerusalem, the scenes I saw every day did not resemble the ones familiar in the Western media. Now I try to share those positive images with the world, what is really happening in Jerusalem, Israel, The Real Jerusalem Streets
