New York, Third Glance

I don't know if it was the shortness of the visit, the first NY winter in over 35 years, or just my mood at the time, but during this past recent visit, for the first time I noticed the massive number of people.

You have more people in New York City each day than in all of the State of Israel. Suddenly I comprehended the economic strength, why Israelis who want to make oodles of money go to major American population centers like New York and California.

And me, I like a different sort of quality of life. I like my small country and community and good neighbors. And I consider it important to live in the one and only Jewish Land and State, even with all its faults and problems.
