Yom Kippur Souls">Yom Kippur Souls

Posted September 24th, 2013
 
God made Adam out of clay, and clay we remain. Bodies are doughy and malleable, and every morning you wake a fresh, blank slab. You can’t quite remember exactly what you are, what you look like, how it feels to be you; so every day you change, slowly, subtly, until your original self is forgotten.

The Oddest of Couples">The Oddest of Couples

Posted January 3rd, 2013
By Anna Kaminsky, Hebrew University
 
I spent the best six months of my life studying at the Masa Israel-accredited Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The things I did, the things I learned, the people I met – I will never forget any of it. But one of the things I will cherish most is the friendship I developed with a guy named Ghassan.
 
Ghassan is a year and a half younger than me but you would never know it.
