So now we’ve been back from Israel for two weeks. Everyone asks, “How was it?” or “Did you have a nice time?”
I haven’t a clue how to answer those questions.
How do I explain that I am feeling completely out of my element here? It gets more intense with each trip. I don't need every Jew in America to see things the way I do, but I am tired of explaining, justifying the centrality of Israel in my world view to people who don't care or who argue that you can be "just as a good a Jew" in America as you can in Israel.
