Priorities, Why We Left The IBA Party Early

On Shiloh Musings, I just blogged about the IBA 20th Anniversary/Birthday Party.  We (my husband and I) left early after asking Steve Liebowitz how he could schedule the party the same exact time as a Jerusalem Lions home game.  He understood and just asked that we stay for his opening speech which we did.  In it he thanked anyone and everyone (apologizing for any name he missed) who has/had been involved with the IBA news.  He especially thanked the outside experts, such as my husband, who appear gratis, without getting financially compensated for their time and efforts.

We hurried over to Kraft Stadium, in nearby Sacher Park, arriving early in the second quarter, to watch our son's IFL Jerusalem Lions beat the Tel Aviv Pioneers..



There's always a great "very Israeli" variety of people at the games.

Shalom!
So it's OK to be a pioneer in Tel Aviv, but not elsewhere...?

Give them some credit, going to a part of the Land of Israel so lacking in Jewish, Biblical history does make them "pioneers." It certainly makes it more difficult to explain why they are there as Jews. But, at least they are there and not in Brooklyn or the French coast.

Shalom!
I firmly salute any resident of Tel Aviv who considers him/herself a pioneer, as the first builders of Tel Aviv certainly were. They should just realize that the pioneers of Tel Aviv are no different that the pioneers of anywhere else in Israel. United we stand, divided we fall is a truism, not just a cliche.
