The Garden Terrace on the roof of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Jerusalem feels like another world, not a bad thing these days. The setting is enchanting, with rattans sofas and chairs separated by trees strung with fairy lights. It’s a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the cool Jerusalem night air. The wait staff even offer shawls if it gets too cool as the winds pick up.
The guide I hired to take Teddy and me on an historical tour of Jerusalem came equipped with a plan for the day — clearly unaware that any itinerary he might provide would have to include the lunch spot of my choice.
Today Teddy and I spent a solemn afternoon at Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, in Jerusalem. The experience is devastating — and essential. Even having been there before, I will need time to process the visit enough to write a description that might begin to do it justice. I’m thankful that the place exists; that it was built and curated so well; and that I got to bring Teddy, as my mother brought me 28 years ago.

Several weeks ago I enjoyed a delicious lunch at Café Zamn with a group from our congregation. A couple of things stood out about the meal. First was the tangy, citrusy green juice. Second was the impossibly creamy eggplant with tahini sauce. Third, was the fact that Café Zamn is in Ramallah. And, finally, the meal was extraordinary because of the conversation we had with a deputy minister from the Palestinian Authority. But seriously, that eggplant was to die for.
