Sometimes text just doesn’t do reality justice. I’ve been in Israel for a week now thanks to Stand With Us’ Once in a Lifetime project and because I’m not a fancy-schmancy man with a flipcam, iPhone, or any other form of modern technology, I’ve been writing text blogs. Luckily, they’ve had a woman with a [...]
Tel Aviv, baby! Thank you to Stand With Us’ Once in a Lifetime project for making this trip possible! Israel is more than just one half of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. That’s the point every Israeli wants to impress upon foreigners right now. Nearly every time I ask a question about the conflict, it seems Israelis [...]
Ein Karem. Jealous of me yet? Thank you to Stand With Us’ Once in a Lifetime project for making this trip possible! That last thing I need on this trip is to have something inserted into my ass—especially thorns—lots of thorns. So we’re doing a nice hike around the mountains of Jerusalem and we go [...]
Hasidic Jews know how to get down. Tonight, I went to a Sabbath service at a synagogue and they put traditional church services to shame.

Thank you to Stand With Us’ Once in a Lifetime project for making this trip possible! Yesterday we went to the Temple Mount, the Western Wall, the Wailing Wall, the Jewish Quarter, and throughout the Old City and finished the day with a jaw-dropping Sound and Light Show at the Tower of David—and as amazing [...]

Yes, it’s the second day of my second trip to Israel and I’m reiterating that I believe peace is possible—despite all the obvious signs to the contrary. Today, we went to the beautiful Mount Scopus, Hebrew University, and met [...]

Jet lag is the Devil. I slept all day, so now I am up all night. Tomorrow may result in hospitalization from having too many energy shots.
As I was blogging last time, I was on my way to the International [...]
Tip to all aspiring drug smugglers: Don’t try to through Israeli El Al security. You will go down in flames.
For those of you who haven’t traveled to Israel, you may not know the boot camp that is El Al. You are interviewed (more like grilled) and if you fail miserably as I did, it’ll happen [...]
