TRAVELER ISRAEL: FACES
« TRAVELER

Israel, in some ways, is a melting pot, much like the USA. Israelis came from Russia, surrounding Arab countries, Ethiopia and the Philippines among other places. Like our melting pot, it sometimes boils over,  peace between Israel and much of the Arab world, is elusive. The Knesset , the Israeli parliament is even more fractious than our often dysfunctional congress. In spite of all that, in these faces I find optimism, from the students of the international school, to health care workers to the jewelry designers from Ethiopia to the merchants in the Shuk.
