Photo from "The Jews in America," Collins Publishers, 1989.Out along the glistening white, sandy beach in Herzliya, one feels a sense of serenity. The expected is unfolding. The tides gently form the shining blue waters of the Mediterranean into white foaming waves that crash upon the shore. They invade and wash away children's sand castles, cool the feet of walkers like me. The sounds at water's edge are constant, primal, refreshing.
