This is my confession

I have something to confess. It is something that elicits a reaction along the lines of “Why?” and “Really?” when I tell people that have no idea how vibrant Israel is. What is this confession? It’s that Tel Aviv has become my favorite city in the entire world. Its youthfulness. Its energy. Its “Miami-esque” feel. All things I came to love about it when I visited last year. I am itching to get back and visit again as soon as possible.

Some day, when I make aliyah from the States, I hope that Tel Aviv will be my home, or at least the surrounding area. I decided earlier this month to make a montage of the video footage I took when I was there. The video below is six minutes of the wonderful sights and sounds of Tel Aviv. I consider it my “love letter” to Tel Aviv.
