I was planning to drop National Politics to continue Hebrew but
a) I’m the only student that has expressed interest
b) the course coordinator who teaches the subject is taking a leave of absence
He suggested that I take a subject about modern Israel instead - using the “you don’t do exams only two essays” to draw me in.
So…to study national politics or Israel?
Pros of national politics
1. I studied a similar subject last year
2. Did well and enjoyed it
3. This year is an election year so it will be really interesting
4. My timetable fits and is all good
Cons of national politics
1. I might be bored because I studied it last year
2. I’m more interested in international politics that national politics
Pros of Modern Israel course
1. It’s what I do what to learn
2. It’s easy to do well in
Cons of Modern Israel
1. My timetable is already all set - I’ll have to play around with it again
2. I’m not sure if it will count towards a politics major since this is part of a Jewish Civilisation and Israel major
3. I did a course like this two years ago
Made this to place under ima’s hospital wristband #getwellsoon #prayer #hebrew #judaism #psalms
Benny Friedman - Yesh Tikvah - There is hope
English and Hebrew lyrics included in the under bar.
I’ve heard this song so many times over the past couple of months - people I know just keep playing it! The words are very relevant to us and are truly beautiful.

Remember Hallel today!
We have the Hebrew cover for TFiOS, which I am so excited to read.
The title says אשמת הכוכבים (pronounced eshmat ha’kochavim) which directly translates to Fault of the Stars.
And the little blurb at the top says “near genius”.
Lastly, note that the cover art is a Van Gogh reference.
One of my favourite books in the entire world…in Hebrew.
I have a signed copy in English.
But..MUST read in Hebrew.
למדתי את השפה בבית ספר.
גם כשהייתי יותר צעירה, הורי דברו בעברית כשהם לא רצו שאבין את השיחה שלהם
