הפרויקט של עידן רייכל

What a day yesterday! Following in the spirit of the Israeli Zacks, we signed a lease on a different apartment. Finally, we will get away from all the construction over here!! Our new place is a few streets over, across from the Mercaz HaRav Yeshiva.
Lisa used an expression a few weeks ago that really sums up how I feel. "I want to disengage from the disengagement". I dont think we should sit around being depressed 24/7, so instead, we went to a concert last night. The Project of Idan Reichel. It was amazing!! Idan Reichel is the leader and the keyboardist, who also sings a bit. He has 3 singers, 2 Ethiopian and one something else. Theres a regular guitarist, a guy with a four string guitar, a drummer, and a guy with 3 bongo drums, a tarbuka (a piece of pottery covered in leather) like 3 kinds chimes, two things he was shaking in his hand, a regular drum, a triangle, and probably more things I didnt notice. Half the songs were in Ethiopian. But you got to figure that even concerts in English you can barely understand what they are saying. The music was great, we strongly recommend anyone coming to Israel to go to one of their concerts.
