The Mount Is Ours!

The Temple Mount in Jerusalem is, without a doubt, sensitive. Holy to so many people, Jews and Muslims, it is a place where every stone contains generations upon generations of history. But, sometimes the desire to glorify the history of one side may violate what is most holy to the other side. That was the […]

Lichi, Douze Points

Allow me to begin with a small, personal anecdote. You’ll get the connection in a second. For anyone who still doesn’t know, Ronnie, my husband, is the author and illustrator of six children’s books, . His first book, “Chambaloo’s Treasure,” was made into a play produced and directed by our tremendously talented niece, Keren.  Keren […]

No need to travel abroad

Sometimes I ask myself- “What do I need this for?” Travelling next to a screaming baby, eating some microscopic unidentified food, spending hours waiting for a connection flight in Istanbul next to a cheerful family from Kyrgyzstan, trying to communicate with people who have the nerve not to speak a word of English, running for […]

Who’s Afraid of a Bit of Technology?

Anybody want to hire me? I work hard, I give all I’ve got, I’m loyal, a quick study, and ask only minimum wage. Well, maybe not that… No. Lichi Translations hasn’t fired me yet. After all, I am the boss. But, given all the signs, it seems that I might, in the near future, need […]

So, you hire simultaneous translators and an acoustic booth for them to sit in and translate the lectures to those present, right?  Now, let’s say you want to stream the conference online to the entire […]

A fly on the wall

Waiting for a phone call from the Mossad

Whether you like Bibi (Benjamin Netanyahu) or not, here in Israel we felt a sense of pride as our prime minister exposed what was hidden behind the curtains – folders and discs that contain hundreds of thousands of documents of invaluable information on Iran’s nuclear industry. “An unprecedented intelligence achievement” said the white-haired man in […]

And the Oscar goes to…

Once again, the limo doors open and glamorous Hollywood stars in their tuxedos and designer dresses walk between the lights along the red carpet, and time after time the words: “And the Oscar goes to…” are repeated, and the winner thanks his grandmother Barbara and her uncle Henry in an excited voice and eyes filled […]
