Shalom from Israel

A friend of mine who is currently studying in Israel mailed me this update the other day:

There are about 230 or so international students on my program--mostly north american, but a few scattered others: german, french, belgian, polish, georgian, russian, AND, believe it or not, a few asians! Japanese, Korean, and Chinese! The Japanese guy is Jewish, he is a 42 year old physically disabled man who is constantly shouting in broken Hebrew/English about how he comes from a Jewish community in of the lost tribes or something? Not too sure, but I must say he is quite an interesting addition to my Hebrew class!

The Lost Tribes of Israel in Japan? Maybe that should be the new title for my blog.
