The Baobab Tree

Rhona Lewis

The baobab tree brings up nostalgic memories for me. Growing up in Kenya, it was part of my childhood.

Zooming Around With Zeidy Zakon

Nachman and Miriam Zakon

Shalom Aleichem! I’m Zeidy Zakon. I love Eretz Yisrael, where I live. I love kids. And I love traveling in my “Zeidy-Jeep” with kids like you. So jump in and join me as we get to know Eretz Yisrael. After all, it belongs to you, and to me, and all Jews.

Rochel Burstyn
