I love my city. It calls to me; beckons to me. And because I love it so much and am so curious about its history, I decided to enroll in an intense one year course sponsored by Beth Jacob Seminary in conjunction with the Jerusalem Municipality, to become a Jerusalem tour guide.
And that is how I found myself, on an icy cold January evening, standing on a windswept mountain with twenty five other women, most at least twenty years younger than myself, our necks tilted upwards, gazing at the stars. Our guide pointed out the different stars (kochvei shevet, “sitting stars,” because they remain in the same place in relationship to each other) and planets (kochvei lechet, “traveling stars” because they move across the sky) and then let us view Jupiter with a telescope. Yes, I managed to find three its four moons.
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and her assistant arrived for our meeting at the King David Hotel with a bouquet of roses.
It is not enough to make aliyah and move to Israel, olim must contribute to the rebuilding. There is so much we can do. There is so much we are doing. For the Jewish people, for the Land of Israel.
