Shalom, everyone! Fantastic news: the weather in Israel is officially BEAUTIFUL. In fact, I’d venture to say one could practically call it summer here. I know things haven’t been so sunny back home in Boston, so I thought some gorgeous photos would be the perfect way to cheer everyone up (or get all my readers to absolutely hate me out of jealousy.) In any case, here’s a small slice of my life in Haifa..
