TRY ONE YOURSELF>>> Age: 42 Residence: Jerusalem Married? With children? No. No Occupation: Agent Provocateur Education: Political Science, Law Religious affiliation / observance: Jewish Sephardic, Traditional Last person / party I voted for: Ethiopian List Next person / party I will vote for: Pantherim Ha Schorim (black panthers). Seriously. My history (100 words max): I was born in Israel and my parents left when I was 3. I returned 3 years ago to Jerusalem because God was giving me signs. OK, I'm not crazy. I just really love Israel! I do Internet related work and run a Web site called Jewlicious.com - and when I am not doing that I terrorize pedestrians with my mountain bike and play basketball with hooligans in the park Family history (100 words max): My entire family hails from Morocco. They left in 1956 and moved to Israel. Everyone is still here except for my parents, 3 sisters and 3 (gorgeous!) nephews My connection with Israel: I live in Israel. It's home in every sense of the word. What I would take with me to a deserted island: An ipod full of music, ebooks, videos and photos as well as a solar battery charger. I'd also bring a tub of sunblock, a knife, a flint for making fire and a whole host of survival equipment. I'd also bring Bar Rafaeli to uh... help me gather coconuts. Finally I'd bring a big boat, for obvious reasons If I could have dinner with any person in the world it would be: Jesus. No, no... Ghandi. OK no, Moses. Yeah. Oh. No, scratch that. Einstein! OK, who are we kidding. Bar Rafaeli. That's it. Me and Bar What angers you: I actually really don't like bullies. And forms... What makes you happy: To see justice done, a sunny day with a slight breeze, puppies and... oh who am I kidding. These days the thing that makes me most happy is Arak. Lots and lots of Arak Last book I read was: The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon, but I kind of regret it... Comfort food: Granola, Muffletta My life five years from now: I'll hopefully be married... You may not like it but I have something controversial to say: Completely secular Judaism kinda sucks. Happiness: 1-10 (10 being the happiest) 8 TRY ONE YOURSELF>>> Meet all 'About Me' participants
