Every year around the anniversary date of my aliyah (permenant move to Israel), I write a column summarizing the past year of my life in Israel and how it relates to my aliyah as a whole. For the last few weeks I’ve been mulling over what to write about as, to be completely frank, it’s been a fairly quiet year for me.

Israeli youth often go on a world trip to celebrate the completion of their army service. I never had the chance to do my own post-army excursion, but when I found myself with some unexpected free time, I decided that I should take a belated post-army trip. With only 10 days of vacation at my disposal, I chose to go to Thailand, a popular destination for Israelis, in part because it is immensely affordable.

As an American citizen who made aliyah a few years ago, I try to completely immerse myself in Israeli culture. Even so, I still appreciate little touches from the United States here and there. Whether it’s a candy bar not sold in Israel or the occasional movie or TV show that keeps me up-to-date with the latest pop culture trends, there’s nothing like a good infusion of American culture every now and then. However, despite the easy access I have to all things American, it’s rare to get a taste of something from my native state of Rhode Island.

 
Gilad Shalit is home PDF Print E-mail

In 2009, I took a rhetoric course at Bar Ilan University. During one exercise to improve our rhetoric techniques, the professor had us stand in different parts of the classroom, based on our opinions of a certain issue.  Those who believed that Gilad Shalit should be freed at all costs were to stand to the right; those who believed that not a single terrorist should be released in exchange for Shalit   on the left; and those (including me) who were “sitting on the fence” should stand in the middle of the room.

The professor then further divided us into even smaller groups, with one representative of each viewpoint in each group. Every individual was allotted two minutes to explain his or her particular viewpoint. I told my group that, although I consider every life precious and believe we should do everything in our power to save even one individual. If it were up to me, then blood would be on my hands if a released terrorist went on to kill others; so I was glad  not to be the person making that decision. I also said I would accept any decision Israel might make in weighing the pros and cons of freeing Shalit.
