sabra

The Sabra (the Prickly Pear Cactuss fruit – thorny on the outside, sweet and soft on the inside) is the manifestation of the new Jew. This would be a person who would stand up for him/herself, defend themselves and others against enemies and would live on and by the land.

The ideal Sabra was an Israeli born, preferably from a Kibbutz (see above), tall, strong, young and handsome man or woman who plowed the fields by day, and wrote poetry by night. Today, the term Sabra is used to denote having been born in Israel. The slide on left shows the values upheld by Israels founders and still apart today.

Fears of history repeating itself come to play in politics, in business life, in Israels international stand. It impacts issues of security and the Arab-Israeli conflict. It shows up in personal and public approaches towards peace. For the Jewish sector – the Holocaust has an omnipresence; showing up in current events fairly frequently as does the ancient past when Jews had a nation in the land of Israel. For the Arab sector the Nekba (the mass departure of Arabs from Israel in 1948) is the pivotal narrative…

Excerpts from: Socializing

Shalom, which means peace, is used for both hello and good-bye. Greetings are casual and friendly, and handshakes have the same significance as in the U.S. Israel is very informal; titles are less important than in the U.S, and first names, often nicknames, are commonly used, even for higher ranking individuals.
