משכן לאמנות עין חרוד

כמה רגעים מביקור מופלא של ידידי המשכן האמריקאים, המתארחים אצלינו השבוע. זו ההזדמנות שלנו לשתף אותם, להראות להם ולחלוק איתם את חוויית המקום, את האמנות הישראלית במיטבה, את תרבות הארץ. הביקור עדיין בעיצומו, וזו הזדמנות להודות לאנדריאה ויין, לוונדי קנטור ולדונה קראסיק על הליווי.

Make it a point to get to the Mishkan!

Israel in New York

The buzz around Tel Aviv is epic.

Missing the amazing salads of Israel? Just tried 2 great recipes: Chopped Israeli salad with tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, red pepper, fresh parsley, fresh mint, lemon juice and olive oil. Raw Moroccan carrot salad with grated carrots, fresh parsley, fresh cilantro, garlic, lemon, olive oil, cumin and cinnamon!!!

A Negev farewell until next time. Israel, we love you.

Another indescribable day, today in the Mitzpe Ramon crater, complete with lessons in geology, survival, history, and some fun 4-wheeling -- followed by some quality time poolside.

And now... Beresheet Hotel - מלון בראשית in Mizpe Ramon!

More from spectacular Petra. Still processing this incredible experience.

Back in Israel 🇮🇱

Spectacular Petra

Off to Jordan and Wadi Rum A-M-A-Z-I-N-G topography, sweeping desert landscapes, and the perfect setting for movies from Laurence of Arabia to last year's The Martian. Exhilarating jeep ride, lovely Bedouin hospitality, delicious lunch, and goosebumps from (it bears repeating) the awe-inspiring scenery.

Windy night at Vicky•Christina Tapas & Wine Bar so fun and the best meal we had in Tel Aviv

Slice of life to start the day at Beit Daniel Shabbat services. Wonderful, warm, progressive service with many familiar Ashkenazi prayer melodies. Then off to Old Jaffa and the Ilana Goor Museum -- very interesting work in a the artist's beautiful home. A quick stop at famed Abu Elafya bakery for a little snack and then a walk along the promenade to our spot on the beach, complete with piña coladas and refreshing dips in the Mediterranean Sea.

What an afternoon and evening! Emotional experience at Independence Hall with Itai bringing it to life for us, walking tour of history, arts and architecture in Tel Aviv, lunch at the best rotisserie chicken place (and the potatoes!!!!!!), and dinner together on the beach. Balmy breezes, beautiful friendships blooming, and the backdrop of incredible Israel... It just does not get better than this.

Ayalon Institute / The Bullet Factory - מכון איילון -- un-be-liev-able! So many feelings: wowed, proud, and very, very grateful.

My favorite restaurant at the Tel Aviv Port!

Zichron Yaakov and then Caesarea on a magnificent day. Cool little town followed by super-cool history.

Gripping detail in The Golan Heights

Arrived, de-gritted (from off-roading), cocktailed, and dined at Scots Hotel. Cool place. Happy to be here.

Beit She'an Byzantine-era ruins in the a.m. then Tomcat off-roading through mango and olive groves in the north... a mouth full of dirt and a ride full of fun!

And, of course, the camels

Breakfast and a B'nai Mitzvah all before 9AM. Mazel tov to Donna, Janet, Wendy, Debbie, Sharon, and Rob. And thank you Rabbi Rob Kahn.

Hiking (and some of us tramming up to) Masada National Park, Unesco World Heritage Site, and a refreshing float in the Dead Sea , Israel.

What a day. Yad Vashem: World Holocaust Center, Jerusalem this morning, followed by a celebration of life today in Israel at Shuk Machane Yehuda and much more.

Fun, educational, meaningful... Western Wall tunnels after dark! So good.

Fascinating day in the Old City
