Can ya help a brother? Read about those who do.
Yom revi'i, 7 Av 5775. This Tisha b'Av, it will be ten years since Gush Katif. I still remember the spiritual-high hopefulness followed by the excruciating, sucking-chest-wound pain when we heard that the Jewish communities o...

Mama's Envelopes
Yom revi'i, 23 Sivan 5775. Debt kills. Increasing debt weighs you down, dragging you toward a grave in the End of Hope Cemetery. I think it must be like heroin addiction. In the moment of the "fix," you're flying high, feeling no pain. But when you crash, w...

"No one loves bureaucracy or bureaucrats. But sometimes if you treat them like people with lives and children and stories outside their little cubicles and annoying rules, they can surprise you by returning the favor."

A Special Birthday Party
Yom shishi, 5 Iyar 5775. I just don't remember this kind of enthusiasm for the significance of the Fourth of July! Perhaps that is because we Americans are generations-removed from gaining our freedom as a nation. Perhaps it is because Memorial Day is a cou...

May Mama's wisdom. Should have paid attention when I was young. I'd be a lot richer now!

"Talkback Terrorism" is probably too tough a term. But I've heard from far too many writers who afraid to speak their minds on even relatively benign subjects, because the comments are so harsh and downright mean. Here's a plea for kinder, gentler discourse. Yes, Virginia, we can disagree without being nasty.

Work
Occupation
I blog at http://rutimizrachi.blogspot.co.il. My blog is called "Ki Yachol Nuchal!" It's all about our life in Israel, what makes Israel special, and about my guys. I also blog at the Times of Israel: http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/author/ruti-eastman/

Story
Tagline
Raises crops of boys. Lives in and loves Israel.
Introduction
I am anxious for everyone to get along, starting with the Jews.  Scratch that.  Starting with religious Jews.  Hmmmm...  probably still a lot to strive for.  How about religious Jews in Israel?  In Gush Etzion?  In my yishuv?  How about let's just start with my family.  Okay, guys.  As Abba says, "World peace starts at this table."  Let's get our act together, and bring Moshiach.

 In small ways, every day, I try to to do my part to rectify the error in judgment of my zaydies, the meraglim. "See these big grapes? We can make really big wine!"
Bragging rights
I've been a waitress, a disc jockey, a cartoonist, a soldier, a secretary, a teacher, proof-reader, editor... But my favorite jobs are: wife, mother, photographer, artist, writer... friend.
