The magic of Mitzpe Ramon: a complete guide to the desert town

While the White City has its own charm, there’s something magical about slipping away from the hustle and bustle to a quieter, more peaceful environment that Israel has to offer. With its gargantuan erosion crater offering kilometer upon kilometer of arid land just waiting to be explored at the wake of dawn, to the crystal clear night skies free from urban pollution at dusk, Mitzpe Ramon offers just the nature-infused cure to relax, reflect, and recharge before returning to the nonstop city.

In Her Own Hands: an interview with Marina Maximilian Blumin

Israeli singer and actress Marina Maximilian Blumin opens up in a personal interview about why she decided to take the role in the hot Israeli show "Fauda" after a seven-year break from acting and what her life is now with two children / by Rotem Izak Photo by Rotem Lebel for ArtBook, creative by Tal Kleinbort, styling by Yulli Sagarda Marina Maximilian is a woman who plays with the world and its expectations, wears and undresses different identities, and refuses to be compressed into one definition. It has been 13 years since she broke out on "A Star is Born" (Israel's reality singing competition akin to American Idol), and since, the singer-creator-actress-model hasn't kept quiet and insists on changing all the time. The last transition in her life seems more dramatic than any hairstyle or diet; the decision to go independent and become her own manager. Three months after her daughter, Dominique Tene, came into the world, a second girl after her 4-year-old Lichi Lucia, who she shares with her boyfriend, musician Guy Mensch, Maximilian has also taken on a dramatic role in the third season of “Fauda". If that’s not enough, she also performs her own music across the country. Not exactly a routine maternity leave, as befits this unique mother and woman. From 'Fauda', courtesy of Yes Out of the comfort zone  What made you want to go independent? "It burned in me for a long time. The music world has changed and I felt that I wanted to work in a different way, study the field
