Tel Aviv’s best art museums

Israel is constantly in the headlines, and it’s rarely for the art scene. Tel Aviv, however, can at times feel a world apart. The nearly 430,000-person city is more secular than other parts of the country, and is known for its restaurants, bars, street art, and many galleries. It has a little bit of everything for creatives, regardless of how people want to express themselves. No one knows this better than the artists currently living in Tel Aviv. Ariela Wertheimer is an artist who was born, ...

Best places for solo female travel

As much as we love travel, there’s no denying it can be tough. That goes double for solo travelers. And double that for solo female travelers. Going it alone can make a trip that much more enriching and empowering, encourage you to take risks and make new friends along the way, but choosing the right first adventure is crucial to ensure solo travel doesn’t leave a bitter taste in your mouth. For women, no matter how fearless, that probably means picking someplace safer than most, at least mod...

Children’s Dream: The Less-Known Theme Parks in Florida

Photo by Jeremy Thompson Florida is one of America’s most comfortable states in terms of climate and nature. It’s here that the majority of the US resort business is concentrated. As a result, Florida has become the epicenter of dizzying entertainment venues. Many tourists, especially families with children, come there to visit Orlando with its famous parks of Disney World, Sea World, Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios, as well as Wet and Wild. However, Florida may offer some less-known, b...

Enjoy seafood in a lively setting at Tel Aviv Fish Grill in Tarzana

The couple next to me glanced at my plate of perfectly cooked salmon when it arrived on my table, then looked away, making me wonder if I had ordered the fishy equivalent of a pork chop in this exceptional kosher seafood restaurant. They talked quietly among themselves for a moment. And then, the woman turned to me, excused herself for interrupting my meal — and asked me why I had ordered the salmon. An odd question, since it is, indeed, on the menu. Well, I explained, I rather like salmon. It h...

Hiking the Israel National Trail

If all those people hiking the Camino, the Pacific Crest Trail, and the West Highland Way have inspired you to pack a bag and take a long-distance walk, know that there is a lesser-known path in the Middle East that is just as rewarding and much less crowded. The Israel National Trail is a 683-mile hiking trail that crosses Israel between the southern and northern borders. It is the perfect endeavor for those who are looking for something challenging, not just physically but philosophically, ...

Best places to travel in January

January is back to business. After nearly a month of half-empty offices and using the excuse that nothing gets done during the holidays anyway, January is the Monday of months, when we all dutifully head into the office with a resolution to be more productive. Well, most of us. Others see January as a time to escape winter and head somewhere warm. Or hit the mountains to ski. Or just generally not be in the office with all those other people who’ve resolved to be more productive. For those fo...

Prince William spends 'moving' moments with Holocaust survivors' family on historic visit to Israel

The descendants of a Jewish family who survived the Holocaust after being sheltered by the Duke of Cambridge’s great-grandmother thanked him personally for her heroism, telling them: “We all owe our existence to the courage of Princess Alice”. The Cohen family, who on Tuesday spent time privately with the Duke at the residence of Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, told him of their “difficult but beautiful” family history, in an “extremely moving” encounter during his tour to Israel...

Palestinians do not want to negate Israel. We just want a future | Atef Abu Saif

We Gazans may be penned in like animals – but on Nakba day we will show the world our humanity is unbrokenOn the first Friday of the Great March of Return I went to the border between Gaza and Israel with my two youngest children, Yasser and Jaffa. Yes, I named my only daughter after the city I was meant to be born in. This is a bit of a tradition among Palestinians, especially if the place name is a particularly graceful-sounding one. The two of them waved Palestinian flags in their little fist...

Fashion Designer Maya Reik's Guide to Tel Aviv

​Tel Aviv is a beautiful rarity with a look and feel that makes it unlike any other city in the world. ​The micro-metropolis on the Mediterranean has a special place in my heart, first and foremost because it's home, but also because it's complex: It's been influenced by both Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cultures, and the blending of the two make Tel Aviv an inspiring and interesting place to visit and explore. With its location on the crux between Africa, Asia, and Europe, you can easily t...
