    On the hike to Tel Dan, I lose it. “That’s so gay,” my student says, turning around to his friend to make sure he hears. We’ve been on this Birthright trip for maybe four days, and this word is already quite popular. It can apparently refer to anything: food, one’s personality,... read on

  • IDF Israelis Dancing

    The best part about knowing Israelis is that, despite all the drama they have to deal with, they keep a great sense of humor in life.  One of my fellow Taglit-Birthright Israel trip-mates forwarded this to our group, and I just wanted to repost.  Read the article. Think what you... read on

    By Naomi Goldberg

    July 8, 2010 | 9:21 am

  • They call me “One Jew”

    July 7, 2010 | 7:52 am

    Well, my mother does anyhow. In this, my first effort as a Jewish, gay, 30-year-old blogger, does it really come as any surprise that I begin this exodus writing about my mother?

    But, enough about my mom, we’ll get back to her soon enough, trust me. My name is Brandon and my hubby... read on
