Hard to find Israeli friends, when my I only have prayerbook hebrew.

The book I’m reading right now, Someone to Run With, has given me the desire to find my Israeli boys from London. Why? Two of the main characters in the book are Assaf and Shai–two of my boys in London were Assaf and Shai. I’ve found them but can’t quite find an email. I even found a song they remixed together and listened to it, but without modern hebrew–I can’t read the message boards and figure out if they might be saying where they are, where they have a gig, etc. Then there is Udi–the super tall engineering student. His hotmail account doesn’t exist anymore, so I’m at a loss.

Anyone with modern hebrew skills want to help me out? Udi Segev, Shai Lelchuk and Assaf Blinder. They may or may not be in Israel or London. As I toss the idea of a trip to Israel around in my head, I know I can’t go without trying really hard to find these guys. They are the only people I know in Israel.

Of course, when they knew me, I was serving them ham. I was nowhere near converting and they were nowhere near turning down a free meal–even if it was treif out the wazoo.
