I haven’t spoken Hebrew for almost 30 years. We are in Israel right now and I can’t help myself wanting to throw out some evrit. It is amazing what the brain retains. I was sitting at the bar with David in tel aviv and I needed a napkin. I remembered the word mapeet immediately. I wish I could remember more important things in my daily life. Today we were fortunate to be able to visit an army base on the Israeli/Lebanon border. The soldiers let us climb on the tanks check out their guns and then we are lunch with them in the chadar ochel, food hall. We all spread out and mixed with the 18-21 yr old soldiers. I sat with the girls. It was really nice to talk and ask questions. The word chadar ochel is meaningful to me because we are there 3x a day at camp ramah. Today a new association.
