    New York City has more than 500 food trucks. Boston has almost 60. And now, Israel has one. In July, the “Auto-Ochel” (or “FoodTrip”) hit the streets of Jerusalem on its first stop of a three-week run. Part food truck and part pop up, this mobile kitchen has been stopping... Read More

    I had a rare treat last night, taking my two sons to Fenway for a Red Sox game. After surprising them with the news that they were going to a Red Sox game, not Daddy’s softball game, we bade the girls goodbye and drove into town. Ostensibly this treat was a birthday present for my... Read More

    I will not say a lot about it, because I believe that the photograph says it all. I'm so proud to work in such an amazing architectural monument, overlooking the Jerusalem old-city walls, operated by Cezanne Catered Events.
