Chatting Informally with Dan

Updated: Jul 22, 2022

Building Bridges Session

July 22, 2022

We had a great session with Dan today. By the way, Dan is not the short form for Daniel. Dan is the name of the 12 sons of Jacob who was later named Israel. It is also the name of the 12 tribes of Israel. Daniel is the name of one of the prophets in the Old Testament.

Let me briefly provide you some of the resources that he shared with me:

Every country has a right to share about her own achievements.

Some bits and pieces about the culture and the people of Israel today:

Famous Golda Ice Cream

The Golda Icre Cream is found at every corner of the street all over Israel during hot summer months. Can you read the Hebrew word?


National Dish Falafel

Pita Bread

Episode 2 - Pita Bread

Jerusalem Mixed Grill (Meorav Yerushalmi):

Fact Check: Abu Ali Express

This is the fact check on Instagram or Twitter account provided by Dan to fight against propaganda.

  • Or, on Twitter:

About the Druze community (דְרוּזִים)

Roll of Honour

These are the Israelis who have contributed a lot to their country (look out for the for the Druze soldier and see how many Muslim Arabs are also part of Israel’s independence)

Something about their independence days over the years...

The Father of Modern Hebrew

Google for the Father of Modern Hebrew, and the name Elizer Ben Yehuda will appear...


This is a good opportunity to build bridges -- and for people to meet a young man living in modern Israel to find out more about the country before you get the opportunity to go for your pilgrimage.

Dan is what you call the modern, secular Jewish young man, not the typical Hasidic Jewish religious rabbi that you have seen images of on the Internet.

The 21-year-old will share with us about the culture and the people in modern Israel. He was the one who got me interested in trying out some recipes of traditional Middle Eastern dishes that are popular in Israel. Maybe, some day when I have sufficient budget to travel to Israel, I would love to try out the food there.

You will also hear about the hoopoe, their national bird, and find out more about the nice places to visit when you try to Israel. He will also bring us to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on the earth.

As Dan is now serving the army as part of their national service, I have asked him to share with us about the Iron Dome as well.

Don't miss this opportunity to meet Dan on Zoom!
