Yehuda Gubani & Hebrew
Eliana, a chanicha (camper) in Machon, explained her Hebrew name to a hushed crowd at aruchat tzaharayim (lunch). Her parents chose this name because they waited for 5 years to bear a child, and felt that “God Answered” their prayers. Hence, Eliana. Eliana was introduced to those present by Yehuda Gubani, our long-time member of tzevet Tarbut Yisraelit (Israeli Culture staff). He brings his special interest in and passion for all things related to Israel and Hebrew to our Palmer community every precious minute he is here.
