Dear JTS Community,
Marc Gary and I have been visiting Israel during a week that has included everything from the usual round of JTS meetings and time with old friends, to learning what to do in case of an air-raid warning, all set against the unnerving background of Israel at war.
I am full of admiration for the discipline, confidence, and good spirit with which Israelis are handling the latest matsav to come their way. Here is my report of our time in Israel.
