Today’s Israel Array

@ VOL 22 ON JUN 02, 2017

You may consider Jennifer Nobel a starving artist, but since she likes to cook so much, she’s more like a yearning artist.  Her writing and photography work is not a secret mission, although it’s hidden in the pages of two inspirational compilations, travel features for AAA’s Home & Away, along with archived photography and profile stories for Etc. for Her a local magazine. As a wife and mother of three, she’s kept her family lively in having three foreign exchange students in the past ten years from China, France, and thankfully also from Japan.  Instead of traveling, they brought travel home. Her PechaKucha contribution is titled “Today’s Israel Array,” where array is defined as “an ordered arrangement, in particular.”
