Vered's Wedding

A beautiful wedding at Nana Bar in Neve Tzedek. Vered looked stunning beautiful and so did her dress. Everyone was very happy and very nice. It was the best wedding I ever been to.

Sabon Bryant Park

This year with the "green" theme I guess, Sabon at Bryant Park has also turned green. I met my old friend Mirit and she came to run the store from San Francisco.

Arrived Israel

Arrived in Israel. Waited almost an hour for the luggage. Avi sent his driver who drives a Mercedes to pick me up. Check-in the hotel and went dinner with Vered, her brother, his GF, and her friends. We went to Nana bar which is going to the Wedding place tomorrow. I already love this place !! I love Neve Nzedek!

Finally get to go to Ippudo Ramen on 4th Avenue. Last time it was a 1.5 hour wait for dinner so we went for lunch today.  This place used to be a night club and now it's a popular ramen place from Japan. The ramen was good, too bad they didn't have gyoza.  : (

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Went to see this movie called "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas" pre-screening at the JCC yesterday. It's about a German boy named "Bruno" whose father is a Nazi top officer and the family was living well in Berlin. But the family moved to a new place because of the father's promotion and the house was very closed to the concentration camp. Bruno was bored at home and wanted to explore the area around and he got close to the fence of the camp and met this boy "Shumel" who was the same age was he was - 8. Originally Bruno thought everyone dressed in pajamas was a game and he was envy there are so many of them playing together and later he realized it's a camp. While his father/family/teacher are telling him bad things about Jews but he felt that Shumel was a good person and he was his friend. Bruno went to meet Shumel frequently and always brought him food. Bruno's mom was getting mentally upset with the environment close-by after she found out they are killing people and decided to move. Bruno went to meet Shumel for the last time and dressed in pajamas that Shumel got him so he can get in to help him find his dad. Unfortunately they got into a room that were called to the gas chamber...

It was such a powerful ending and I had no words after. During the whole movie, I felt that my hearts was squeezed. Although it was just a movie but in reality, worst has been happened in the concentration camp and I really can't imagine how harsh it was.
