where are you from?
i am from ein karem. i think ein karem is unique because it's a village that preserved the character of a village, even though it's a part of the biggest city in israel. it is a place that has always attracted spiritual people. it was where john the baptiste was born. it is a place that is full of inspiration for poets, painters, people who practice yoga, meditation. we have all the people who came in 1948, a big immigration from yemen and morocco. it is very diverse: we have seven monasteries and churches, eight synagogues and one mosque, all in a little tiny village of 400 houses. what I love the about ein karem are the people who live here, the diversity, old, young, ashkenazi, sepharadi, religious people, secular people, all living together.

my passion is cooking, hosting and meeting new people from around the world.
