I started this blog as a place to post pictures and little stories from my eleven months in Israel. Yalla is Hebrew for Let's go! and i thought it was appropriate for this blog because I have no idea what I will be doing or what will happen to me. The first 5 months I will spend on a kibbutz right on the Mediterranean. The second 5 months I'll be living in a city comprised mostly of immigrants and will be doing community service. Enjoy!
