My friend Asher Yerushalmi came to Israel as an ole hadash (new immigrant) a few months ago, leaving behind him an attorney career to start all over in a new country. His country. Our country.

Having started to know him I feel that he will be a lawyer in Israel rather sooner than later. In the meantime he learns Hebrew at the Ulpan and lives in the absorbtion center in the city of Raanana. He recently bought a camera and made pictures of the city, and also in the city museum. He graciously accepted to make them available on the blog – so here they are, three wonderful presentations about the history and present of one of the beautiful cities in the Sharon plain.

In the meantime I wish Asher good luck at the Ulpan A exams a few days from now.
