We spend many Friday nights in Hoboken for Shabbat dinner with Tuvia’s son, wife and kids since they’ve been here from Israel.
Mihael 6, his sister Mia, 4. Both were born in Israel and up until August, they knew just a bit of English and lived most days in Tel Aviv.
Since the summer they have been here learning English and getting to know us. Sure they knew us. We were there for their births but a few weeks each year was just not enough of a bond. So Ami and Adi moved here for a few years so they could really learn English and get comfortable with us and life here.
Tuvia is bonding with Mihael and now that they are learning English…WE are bonding. They can’t wait for me to learn enough Hebrew, that’s for sure.
So tonight we eat together and play Plants and Zombies on my iPad.
