An immigrant’s journey is never fully completed, even a Jewish immigrant’s journey to Israel. French Fries in Pita, comprised of columns that have appeared in The Jerusalem Post over the last 25 years, records one such American immigrant’s engaging journey. This book sheds light on what it is about Israel that stirs people to move there and become immigrants, a designation – and a feeling – that lasts forever.

    I really enjoy your Out There articles, they are one of my favorite parts of the Jerusalem Post. (One thing I disagree with you is, when I give a “tremp” to my kid’s friends, they always say “thank you”. I have paid attention to that since I read your article years ago, where you said kids don’t say thank you. ) How much is your book? Toby

    I really enjoyed French Fries in Pita, and as an olah of 6 yrs. I can relate to the frustrations. One observation on Makom Kavuah: I know you and many others like your special place, but when you ask someone to get up, it isn’t funny….to them. I took my 3 granddaughters to the Megilla reading a few years ago – first time for them, all dressed up and anxious. We got there early, and just as the reading began, a lady came in and uttered those hateful words: “You’re sitting in my seat.” All four of us had to move. She was wrong as were all the other women who saw and heard and did nothing. Hashem hears our prayers from all corners of the shul…and even outside the shul. May your next 25 years continue to be productive.

    Shalom Herb,
    Your view about the Golan Heights is fine. Let me add that the Golan has been annexed already. The Knesset should take a vote to affirm the 1967 annexation and send a letter to Kerry asking him to respect Israeli democracy and fly to Jerusalem to meet our assistant foreign minister Hotovly to learn why the Golan has been annexed in 1967.
    Toda vekol toov,
