Time for Travel

Hello! Sorry about the lack of blog posts- it means we are busy working, traveling, and having fun. Outside of work we have had chances to see various historical sites. We visited Masada, the mountain where Jewish exiles succumbed to the Roman Empire in the first century. Down the road from Masada is Ein Gedi, the desert oasis where King David was said to have hid from King Saul.

We have gotten to travel Israel to conduct work interviews as well. Just about every day we have been traveling to different organizations to conduct research. We have visited many companies in and around Tel Aviv, in cities like Herzliya, Ramat Gan, Roshe Litzion, Natanya, Haifa, and more.

Last week we attended a meeting at the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament. The meeting was about the best practices and policies for employing people with disabilities in Israel. It featured numerous organizations we have been in contact with. It was nice to see familiar faces and meet more of the influential people involved with employing people with disabilities in Israel. 



  1. Thank you for posting these pictures and talking about both the work and the sight seeing you have done! Looking forward to reading more! -Erin

  2. Great pictures and good commentary. What a wonderful opportunity to visit the Knesset and reconnecting with the organizations you met before! We are pleased that you explored the sites during your time off. It is hard to believe that only one week is left.
