Yesterday I spent a very productive day in Tel Aviv. Productive, that is, for the project that I am working on, next week that project will take me to Holland again.
Today - which happens to be my birthday - my wife, her parents, and I will go to the azkara of Nimrod Hallel z"l, who was killed in Lebanon last year.
