Here is an email I sent to folks. I've updated my email list once or twice in September about my time in Dubai, my current placement. Because of the sensitivity of the location of the community, and nature of the community staying under the radar, I've not posted much....

My time in Israel has been flying by! Having this time to settle a bit and allow myself a somewhat more “regular” schedule has been a bit of a deep breath compared to the consistent travel of the prior few months. I realized that from March through July I had not spent...

After spending two glorious weeks in Tel Aviv, relaxing, catching up on work, and living the dream a bit. It was time to get back on the road, briefly. One of the things that had been on my list since my first weeks with JDC was the idea of getting to visit Szarvas cam...

My first day in India I sat in a Starbucks and cried a little. Who knows which thing actually pushed me over the edge, but I was due to have one good cry somewhere in the world right?

India has been on my list of places to visit since before I got this fellowship. Years...

Remember when I thought it would be great to catch up and have a chilled out week in New York in May? How I ever thought that being in New York City and being relaxed would go together, I’m not really sure.

After one of the worst flights of the year, I arrived in New Yo...
