Even after visiting Israel many times, I still forget how astonishing the establishment of Israel really is. Occasionally, however, a simple intrusion in my life can abruptly focus my amazement on that little state.
Israel's founders understood that Israel cannot treat its minorities the way that Jews were treated throughout history. A world view of how the Jews can realize their national aspirations in a socially just manner is as relevant today as it was then.
I feel pretty amazing most of the time. And I worked hard to get here -- a decade of learning about nutrition, yoga, holistic wellness and my body, while implementing lifestyle adjustments like tons of exercise and fresh air.
