Sam Lehman-WilzigIn this column, I generally try to stay away from politically sensitive, hot-button issues – and focus instead on other aspects of public and private life in Israel.

Sam Lehman-WilzigIf you want to know what living in Israel is all about, you can’t do better than to attend an Israeli wedding. For those readers who have never been to one, get ready for serious culture shock that is not too different from the deep, cultural adaptation needed to live in Israel altogether. Indeed, Israeli weddings are a microcosm of Israeli society, for better and worse.

Sam Lehman-WilzigAfter living in Petach Tikva for 35 years, my wife and I just moved to Kfar Saba (a 12-minute car drive further north). What’s interesting about this is not the towns or the distance between them but that we have been living in the same city for three-and-a-half decades. Seemingly, that would be unusual for a “wandering Jew.” But it isn’t in Israel, which is the subject of this column.
