Israel in the Garden

Posted on: June 4, 2006

It was absolutely gorgeous today in SF, a perfect day for an outdoor festival! We wandered around, ate delicious foods, I registered to be a marrow donor (S had signed up at last year’s festival), and worked from 12:45-3 at the information booth. It was a good thing we were there as a team, because about 1/2 the questions came in English and half in Hebrew. At 3 we were able to go to hear Rami Kleinstein, great Israeli composer and performer (and husband to Rita the Diva!) along with Shiri Maimon (who had represented Israel in the Eurovision song contest last year).

Afterwards we wandered around some more, bought a new mezuzah† for the house, and had a fantastic tea at the Samorvar Tea Lounge on the upper terrace overlooking the Yerba Buena Gardens.

We also bought a kids book in Hebrew about an orange cat to give to Bonnie.
