plains proudly. "Usually, we
discuss the news of the
week." But another regular
suggests that the talk in-
cludes personal as well as
political news.
"We like to celebrate,
whether someone here has a
birthday or a new mistress,"
he says with a laugh.
This day's conversation
was a bit more formal than
most Fridays, in deference to
the English-speaking guests.
The topics included the in-
ner turmoil at the Jerusalem
Post and Israeli television,
as well as the huge influx of
Soviet Jews.
And while the laundromat
setting and caliber of the
participants might be
unique, the truth is that
such conversations on
weekends in homes
throughout Israel are an
essential thread in the fabric
of Israeli life.
On a typical Saturday
night in Jerusalem, it is
more likely that couples will
get together at friends'
homes for conversation than
to go to movies, discos or
dinner.
And what is so difficult for
American Jews who have
not been to Israel to under-
stand is that the sense of
normalcy in Israel's daily
life is palpable, despite the
media fixation on the in-
tifada and the peace process.
Tel Aviv, far from the rock
throwing, bustles with
energy. Chic clothing stores
crowd up against fast-food
joints on busy Dizengoff and
the distance between con-
sumerism and Katusha
rockets cannot be measured
in kilometers.
A visit to a Jerusalem
suburb like Gilo offers a
glimpse of normal daily life,
though on the map we have
entered The West Bank.
Americans whose knowledge
of Israel is based on reading
the newspapers rather than
visiting the country would
find it hard to imagine that
The West Bank is far more,
and far less, than a political
phrase. Primarily, it is a
place where many Israelis
live quiet lives.
It is unfair to talk about
The Mood In Israel because
there are so many voices, so
many views. One of the only
constants among Israelis
from so many different
backgrounds is that they are
involved in and care about
issues on a deeply personal
level. They discuss them,
argue about them and live
them — in living rooms and
laundromats — even as they
go about the noble task of
- living ordinary lives in an
extraordinary land. Cl
