In first person…U.S. visitor charmed by Israeli people

Another woman, Adina, a teacher of mathematics as well as a wife and mother of three, joined us in Jerusalem daily and delighted us with tales of her experiences with Arabs both at home and abroad. Since Adina learned Arabic from her Arab nanny in childhood, she is able to converse with native speakers of that tongue without an accent and is often mistaken for an Arab.
