Gershon studies Hebrew at Ulpan Etzion.

“I returned to Israel to build. Israeli society is unique – people from everywhere come to build after 2,000 years of wandering. Sometimes this means buildings, sometimes spirituality, and sometimes relationships. I once saw a man in his 60s stop learning a rabbinic text to wave down a woman of at least 80 on a crowded bus so she could sit in his spot. This inspired an Eritrean lady who insisted he take a seat in her spot. Later I moved to where a Border Police officer was assisting an Arab woman to bring a stroller aboard. He crammed into a tiny space to make it easier on her. In Los Angeles people give words, in Israel they give their best.”
