Maya was visiting Jerusalem from San Francisco on the last night of Hanukkah so we decided to go on a whirlwind tour of Jerusalem to see as many fully lit menorahs as possible. Maya even bought an ankle length skirt in order to avoid pissing off the Haredim. We also went to Nachlaot, lit candles at the shuk, went to Adi and Margot’s party in Rechavia and then ended the night with some drinks at a bar downtown called Mia. It was a fun and careless night especially considering that we were at war. I hope that one day the Gazans can have similarly fun and carefree nights, safe and secure and in the company of friends and loved ones. How can this happen? Here’s a hint – don’t lob rockets into the territory of the world’s 4th largest military.
