Liberate Yourself This Passover

I’m writing this Sunday morning, the day before the night of the seder. The house has had a more thorough than usual cleaning. The shopping is done. The car has had its pre-Pesach bath.

Israel Trail starting point

January 29, 2013. The sign says “This is the starting point for the Israel Trail.” At Tel Dan, just a few miles from the border with Lebanon. I’m hoping that sometime within the next 18 months I’ll finish the trail in Eilat…1000km, 600 miles away with the very roundabout route the trail takes. Segment...
