I wish that we could meet at party where my fun, quirky, outgoing personality would shine through, and you could see my smile, and hear my infectious laugh. Instead we are here, looking for some of the same things. a partner for life, someone to talk to, someone to make a life with. So, here I am, a girl who moved to Jerusalem at the age of 20 building a life in the complicated landscape of Israel. I am fulfilled by the many communities I am a part of here, from a religious community, to the peacemakers community, and my professional colleagues. And with all of the activities and activism, I fins myself still needing to be loved, admired, challenged, and wanting to grow together with someone else. I want to read the same books together and discuss them, argue over politics and agree to disagree (or not), and raise children in a loving, Jewish home.
