Shalom le kulam!

Thankfully this week has so far been a relatively quiet week here in Jerusalem, although, things seem to be ‘hotting up’, in the surrounding countries. We’ll just have to wait and see the effect that this will have on our daily lives here in Israel.
Here at the Ulpan, things are moving forward with our new website. We had a photo shoot and are furiously writing and rewriting articles that may be of interest to both our existing and future students. I was also approached to write an article for the ‘ English/Hebrew by Subject Blog’. After much thought, I chose to write on a subject that most people struggle with, the’ dreaded’ subject of agreement (gender, number), between nouns, adjectives etc. The article should be published shortly on the following site. http://www.engheb.com/htm/blog.htm I hope it helps………..
Another highlight of the week was the return of one of our Canadian students. She is a musician and once, in a dream, she was playing her violin over the city of Jerusalem. For one of her lessons, I took her to the Promenade Haas, which has an amazing view of the city. There she was able to realize this dream. A very moving experience.
Well that’s all for now…..
Take care,
