My name is Gabi. I learn in Neveh Chana in 10th grade. I am fifteen years old and live in Jerusalem.I have 2 sisters and 1 brother.

I came on Aliya in 2000 when I was eight years old. Before that I lived in London, England. I love living in Israel because the atmosphere is much more open than it was in England and I have great friends.

I enjoy creative and artistic things and also going on trips with my friends, to the beach or on hikes. I spend a lot of time with my friends just having fun.

I go to Bnei Akiva and I will soon become a madricha (counselor). In Israel most kids go to a youth movement and it is a very important part of our lives. We go to Bnei Akiva at least every Tuesday and Shabbat.

We have just gone back to school after Succot. I sleep in school once or twice a week and also on the occasional Shabbat. It is really fun because I am sleeping with all my friends in a room but sometimes it is a little tiring. Anyway, we have just heard that there is about to be a teachers' strike so we may well not have school for a long time.

I also volunteer with a friend once a week to help a handicapped woman.

Right now I am about to go out to Bnei Akiva as it is Tuesday. So have a great week!
