Faces of the Trail


During our trip, we will take a question from Person A and ask it to Person B.
Then we will ask Person B for a new question that we can ask Person C.
And so on.

This is how we hope to involve other individuals in our trip, and to learn about different people.

We organized this page upside down, so you can see the most recent faces. If you are new to this page then we suggest you start at the bottom and work your way up. Enjoy!

orangesq

On the hike from Lod to Rosh Eyin, we past a beautiful orange field. We saw a car up ahead and discussed the chances that the person in the car is the farmer and would he get angry if we picked an orange. We resisted until we arrived at the car and it actually was the farmer, Tzvika, but he was more then happy to let us pick a few oranges and even played us a song on his flute while his friend sang along!

Zohar’s question: “What is a Jew?”
Tzvika’s answer to Zohar: “Someone who is born Jewish or converts to Judaism.”
Tzvika’s question: “Why did Michal laugh at David?”

IMG_3453

Zohar lives in Lod. If you know Israel, you probably expect to stay clear of there. Lod is known for its high drug and crime rate. Zohar moved to Lod twenty years ago because he believes that you can only make a difference from the inside, that you must go specifically to these places and “be the change you want to see in the world”.

Danny’s question: “What’s the best thing you have in life?”
Zohar’s answer to Danny’s question: “I don’t know what the best thing I have in life is, I think it is the ability to give. I used to have a terrible car and it lasted me fifteen years. Do you know why? It’s because anytime I past someone who needed a ride, I’d give him one. Anytime someone asked to borrow my car, I lent him. That good karma kept my car running.”
Zohar’s question: “What is a Jew?”

IMG_3432

We met Danny as he was collecting trash at the site where we stopped for breakfast. He asked us if we knew where we were and we said Latrun. We asked him if he had more history to share with us. The next thing you know, he had us sitting down and enthralled us with the interesting history of the area for fifteen minutes.

Suzanne’s question: “What’s your next challenge?”
Danny’s answer to Suzanne: “I want to retire and enter the gallery scene with my root art.” In his spare time, Danny collects tree roots in which he sees characters and makes scenes.
Danny’s question: “What’s the best thing you have in life?”

IMG_3242

Nava’s Aunt and Uncle came to join us by Beit Govrin. Suzanne and Neal apologized that they had forgotten a tablecloth. We refused to eat the delicious meal that they brought us because we don’t eat without tablecloths.

Yeshiva boys’ question: “If you only had an hour to live, what would you do?”
Suzanne’s answer to the Yeshiva boys: “I would call everyone I know and tell them how much I love them.”
Neal’s answer to the Yeshiva boys: “First, I’d bench (grace after meals) since we just ate, but other than that, I wouldn’t change anything. If you are doing anything in your life that you wouldn’t want to be doing in the last hours of life, then you need to rethink things.” As they drove away waving at us from their red convertible, we saw that they really are living their dream.”
Suzanne’s question: “What’s your next challenge?”

CHABAD

Nava’s sister, Tali, came to join us and dragged along her neighbors who are yeshiva boys, studying in the RAP program. They all came from America with various Jewish roots and connections, hoping to create or strengthen their knowledge and to bond at a comfortable pace and setting.

Dror’s question: “What is your dream?”
Yankel’s answer to Dror: “I want to be a famous musician, movie director, and producer and be really rich. Then I want to use all my money to build chabad houses around the world.”
Ari’s answer to Dror: “I want to own a diamond buisness and open chabad houses around the world.”
Mendel’s answer to Dror: “I want to cure cancer [for chabad houses around the world].”
Yeshiva boys’ question: “If you only had an hour to live, what would you do?”

IMG_3226

We met Dror hiking in the desert and surprised him  when we actually did call. He resides in Moshav Lachish and lives with a few of his close friends from the army. They hosted us in their communal living room and we picked fresh vegetables from their garden to make a huge family dinner for everyone.” Dror then took the next day off to take us “on a tour” of all the local cave spots. It was one of the more unique days of the shvil. Eitan’s mother grew up and went to the same school as Nava in the Toronto Jewish community. They shared a very nostalgic phone conversation reminiscing on their favorite Toronto bakeries and made plans to meet up later on on the trail. Eitan is featured in the middle holding his daughter.

Kiryat Gat’s question: “How many times a day do you stop and ‘restart’?”
Dror’s answer: “I restart every time I go to the bathroom. I stop and take some time to sit by myself and read a book or relax. It’s the only time people have to themselves.”
Dror’s question: “What is your dream?”

IMG_3139

After waiting for two hours on the side of a road, begging cars at gas stations to give us a ride to a farm nearby, we decided that we would not be able to make it to the farm that night. Nava remembered that she knew of a family that lived nearby in Kiryat Gat who’s daughter had spent the year volunteering in Toronto, Nava’s home community. Not to mention that Yoella left her sandals there and they met up with us two days later at a bus stop to give them back to her. Thanks again!

Joshie’s question: “What’s more important; the destination or how you get there?”
Kiryat Gat’s answer: “The journey is the important part; Enjoy the path, living every minute.”
Kiryat Gat’s question: “How many times a day do you stop and ‘restart’?”

IMG_3154

Joshie was in Nava’s garin at Kibbutz Lavi. He made aliyah two years ago from Australia and is currently serving in the Israeli Defence Force in an elite unit. He is one of the champions that joined us for a few days on one of his rare weeks off from the army.

The shepherd’s question: “What’s your favorite song?”
Joshie’s answer to the shepard: “אריק איינשטיין – ערב מול הגלעד” (A Hebrew song by Arik Einstein, “Erev Mul HaGilad”)
Joshie’s question: “What’s more important; the destination or how you get there?”

IMG_3088

One day, Nava went to go herd sheep. There she met this shepherd (in the picture above) who left the Charedi community because he “didn’t like the food”.

Doron’s question: “Do you live your life or live on the side of your life?”
The shepherd’s answer to Doron: “Some people live their lives like sheep, they follow the herd doing what everyone else is doing. I am living my life. Everything in my life is a decision that I chose to do.”
The shepherd’s question: “What’s your favorite song?”

unnamed (2)
Finishing a tough day’s hike, we started waiting for a car to pick us up by the road. The first passing car stopped for us. Then Nava yelped, “Garin Tzabar!” The driver, Doron was wearing a Garin Tzabar shirt, which we immediately spotted. He and the other passenger told us that they are actually both Garin Tzabar coordinators and were on their way to a Garin Tzabar event to which they also invited us. Obviously, we were over the moon. We accompanied Doron to the event and chatted with a few of the soon-to-be lone soldiers, giving them a bit of advice.

Suki’s question: “Should Ariel Zilber recieve the prize regardless of his political views? What is democracy and freedom of speech?”
Doron’s answer to Suki: “The award that Ariel Zilber was to receive has nothing to do with his political opinion, rather the compilation of his musical works. Therefore, his political views should have no impact on the fate of his receiving the award.
Doron’s question: “Do you live your life or live on the side of your life?”

We have not yet met Suki in person, just spoke together on the phone.

We have not yet met Suki in person, just spoke together on the phone.

Upon arriving in Arad, we decided to call a Shvil Angel and stay the night by them. Little did Yoella know she was calling her new best friend. The two chatted and laughed for a few minutes and then Suki said that we could stay by her house in Arad, but her family no longer lives there so we’d have the house to ourselves. The two jabbered a bit longer, debated having a skype date, but in the end made a date that we’ll stay by them once we arrive in Tel Aviv. We had the whole two floor house to ourselves. We ate dinner around around a table!

Daniel’s question: “What’s more important, to set boundaries or to break them?”
Suki’s answer to Daniel: “Obviously to break them. If you always stay behind the boundaries, there is no growth. You must break bioundaries to advance in life.”
Suki’s question: Ariel Zilber recieved the lifetime achievement award in music recently from the Acum awards recently. Singer Achinoam Nini insisted that he not recieve the award because of his radical political  and homophobic views and that she herself would not accept her award knowing that Ariel would be recieving an award the same night. Suki’s question, “Should Ariel Zilber recieve the prize regardless of his political views? What is democracy and freedom of speech?”

unnamed

Daniel is a Dimona resident who picked Nava up in a tremp a few days earlier. He told her to give him a call if we were in the area, and we were so we did. He told us that he was not sleeping at home that night, so we could have the apartment to ourselves. He cooked us dinner, gave us a few life lessons, and left. He still calls us occasionally to see how we are and where we are in a friendly, guardian-esc fashion.

Donnie’s question: “What’s the meaning of life?”
Daniel’s answer to Donnie: “To live life to the fullest. That does not mean doing what other people do or what you think you should be doing. I wasted most of my life not living life to the fullest and only recently started living again.”
Daniel’s question: “What’s more important, to set boundaries or to break them?”

2014-01-29 10.52.19

Donnie is hiking the whole Israel Hiking Trail before his draft to the army. He is doing the whole thing by himself and with one hundred shekels. If you guys don’t know how much a hundred shekels is, imagine that it is worth about the price for a movie, popcorn, and a soda in the United States. He eats rice once a day for dinner and nothing more. We asked him why he was hiking with only a hundred shekels, he said that it was all he had in his bank account.

Officer’s question: “What is your job and are you happy with it? If you could do anything, what would you want to do?”
Donnie’s answer to the officers: “I work as a chef in a restaurant. The work is fine, I don’t mind it. If I could pick any profession, I would be a professional hippie.” He let out a belly laugh.
Donnie’s question: “What’s the meaning of life?”

officers

Commanding officers, engineers of tanks. The sun was going down and we were being chased out of the park by a park ranger. We were sure he was going to give us a big fine (and lecture for not following the rules of being in our campsite by 4:30) when all of the sudden, we spotted around 15 army officials trying to walk into the park. At first we watched in awe, wondering who would win the argument; one park ranger or 15 highly ranked officers. To our suprise, the ranger won and we sheepishly asked the soldiers for a ride out with them. We then endured a 20 minute, extremely bumpy jeep ride.

Russell’s question: “What’s a secret you’ve never told anyone?”
Commanding officers’ answer to Russell: “When I was studying before the army, I smoked a joint. When I took my polygraph test for the army, I lied about it and the army never found out.”
Officer’s question: “What is your job and are you happy with it? If you could do anything, what would you want to do?”

russell

We met Russell from Toronto on the same night as Nicky, at the hippy dance party in Mitzpeh Ramon. Turn’s out he actually went to school on Nava’s street back in Canada! We ran into him the next day hiking (in opposite directions) and decided that we would hike Sunday-Monday together. Russell is a tour guide in Canada and is opening his own farm this year. He was in Israel on Birthright and felt like there was a lot more to learn about Israel so stayed on in the program extend (http://giltravel.com/organization-travel/taglit-birthright-israel-trip-extensions/) which is literally for people who come on Birthright and then extend their stay here. He is an interesting guy who taught us that we can use rocks as toilet paper also (it’s not that bad, give it a try!)

Nicky’s question: “When was the last time you saw a rainbow?”
Russell’s answer to Nicky: “On a tour-guiding course along the gold river highway on Vancouver Island. We were going spelunking (caving) and there were these lakes down below. We sat in a cave for the storm and afterward, the mist from the lakes created a million rainbows. It was beautiful.”
Russell’s question: “What is a secret you’ve never told anyone?”

nicky

Nicky is a German tourist who we met at a hippy dance party in Mitzpeh Ramon. It was around midnight and we told him to meet us at 5:30 am by the viewpoint. To our suprise, we recieved a text at 5:20 from Nicky saying, “Elvis has left the building.” We watched the sunrise together, then hitched a ride and enjoyed a sunny Friday hike with him. He has been couch surfing and traveling for the past three years. He talked to us about honesty, being true to yourself, and “jumping off the cliff” which to him implies not following social norms and doing what really inspires you.

Salome’s answer to Aluma: “This morning, for no particular reason.”
Salome and Urs’ question: “When was the last time you peed off a cliff?”

aluma

Aluma, from Nof Ayelon, worked with Nava in date fields just a few weeks ago. She now works in the vineyard in Mitzpeh Ramon. Israel is such a small country; how amazing that we bumped into her again in a pottery class in the middle of the desert!

Emunah’s question: “What is the connection between love and cake?”
Noam and Eli’s answer to Emunah: “All the main ingredients have to work together well, or else it won’t taste right.”
Nava’s answer: “I want my partner to be the yeast to my cake. I contain all the ingredents to be the perfect cake, but I need the yeast to grow to my fullest potential.”
Yoella’s answer: “I want my partner to be the icing. I am whole, I know who I am, I’ve already been baked (and refrigerated) and the icing just helps bring out what’s already beautiful and delicious inside me.”

*Send in your own ideas. The best answer will recieve their choice of free cake or a free shiduch!

Answer to Eli and Yigal: Emunah is a biology major, so she thoroughly explained to us the process that the water goes through to get from the Kineret (Sea of Galilee) to her tap. However, being from Jerusalem, Emunah did not know the way water is purified in the desert. The inhabitants of the desert drink water that is drawn from anywhere between 1000 to 6000 meters underground.

  1. So nice to see the great photo of my Rabbi Ethan Seidel, whom you met on Lotan, in your faces of the trail section. I’m going to post the photo on our shul bulletin board this shabbat.

  3. Sexy looking blog here ladies. One thing – the tour I went on is confusingly called ‘Extend’ is not part of Taglit/Birthright, though targeted at people who come to Israel with Birthright and providing them with some perspectives not included in their tours. You can find more info on Extend at http://extendtours.org

    (also you wrote Nicky’s question as last time you saw a ‘waterfall’ – which would have been with you guys at Ein Ekev! btw if you want to go on a madddd awesome contact Itay Yelin on Couchsurfing. I went on a SICK canyoneering adventure in Nahal Khatsatson north of Ein Gedi with him on my last day.)

    Happiest trails!

  4. I just started following your blog because I just met you last night. This page is a great idea! A lot of fun to read and to “get to know” all sorts of people. It is an interesting country, isn’t it?? – Shelly
