🎉 20 years Johannes Rau Fellowship Program 🎈
The scholarship programme goes back to a suggestion by then Federal President Johannes Rau during his state visit to Israel in February, 2000. Since then, every year 20 Israeli students are invited to Germany. They qualify by way of an essay contest and a personal interview organised by the German Embassy in Tel Aviv. This way, over the past 20 years about 400 young people have been given the opportunity to get their own impression
of Germany today – and to get talking to young Germans.

My favorite Jewish-Kurdish-Iraqi dish in Israel is Kubbeh Chamusta soup. It’s a soup containing little semolina-balls filled with meat or a vegetarian alternative. They come either in an Beet soup or in a green soup with leek, zucchini and lemon. It’s the tastiest thing in the world and easy to find in Jerusalem. In Tel Aviv though, I found it harder to find it. Last time I’ve been there I ate it at the Hatikva Market. Do you know other places in Tel Aviv for a good Kubbeh soup?Read and discuss on MyGIX
