Life in the other Promised Land. Haaretz Books, April Life in the other Promised Land By When the immigration officer of the former penal colony asks if he has any prior convictions, the Israeli innocently responds: Advertisement "[My husband and I] were adamantly against Iyar's decision to study in Australia, of all places," Semel writes candidly.

Why go to a young continent, which still lacks any time-honored culture - what can one learn there? English weather reminds me of Iraq: As for that other Promised Land, Israel - if I may be permitted to make a gross generalization, it's a sad place. Furthermore, Israelis are unfortunately sad no matter where they live. The main causes for this are past grievances "too much history, too little geography," as the late philosopher Sir Isaiah Berlin wrote in In the psyche of the wandering Israeli who travels the world in search of himself, it does not matter whether those grievances are justified.

Australia is "the lucky country," a place of broad expanses and fertile soil, which makes "desperation just a little bit more comfortable," to quote a phrase from Hanoch Levin's well-known song, performed by the exquisite Chava Alberstein.

Still, Australia cannot make a sad and complex people happy and uncomplicated. There may be less corruption of the sort Israeli pop-rock band Tislam sings about in its hit "Face of a Nation" "Wait, Gedaliah, maybe we'll make you our ambassador to Australia" , but how many Israelis can really sound natural when saying, "No worries, mate!

How many restless Israelis will, like Kenneth, the surfer-brother of Iyar Semel's Aussie girlfriend, calmly state that "every wave is unique and is its own experience. Most Israelis in Byron Bay, the antipodean New Age capital, also known simply as Byron, and in the less expensive communities in its vicinity such as Ocean Shores, Mullumbimby and Lismore , are not the kind the late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin once criticized for being "wimpy dropouts," but are rather the salt of the earth.

They don't hate Israel. Luckily, there are many good Israelis whose opinions aren't as extreme as those of Israel-basher George Steiner "Israel has a great future - in New York! These Israelis simultaneously love their homeland and the global shtetl, and are aware of the limitations of both. Is it easy being an Israeli in Israel? Is it easy being an Israeli in the Diaspora?

Antithesis of Israeliness "I vowed not to be judgmental and won't comment on anything," Nava Semel writes. I promised not to fall into the trap of chanting slogans about the irreplaceable homeland, but what am I to do if I am suddenly struck by sadness? They're all young, kind and beautiful, exuding energy and the passion of youth. There's no anger or bitterness in them when they speak of Israel, just a sense of quiet acceptance.

And that's what's so sad about it. But, ironically, in Australia, Semel's son can live in a commune more reminiscent of the old kibbutz than any locale in Israel, where socialist communities have been emptied of content thanks to the Americanized capitalistic environment.

He also works the land like his pioneering grandparents did in Israel. Moreover, with an overbearing lineage - singer Shlomo Artzi is his uncle, and his father is theater director Noam Semel - no wonder Iyar has a much easier time expressing himself and working on his music on the other side of the world.

Iyar Semel lives in Lismore with his fair-complexion girlfriend Lucy, who symbolizes all that is good in Australians: Even on the cover of the book, Iyar evokes an aura of familiarity with the woes of the world, in comparison to Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds standing beside him. She likes their bluntness. Israelis tell it to your face and don't beat about the bush We wanted a pure Hebrew name for our firstborn - a 'pre-Israeli' name, a pedantic person might say.

A name that meant 'light' in ancient times. I tried to explain to Lucy our aversion toward anything tainted by the Diaspora experience and our obsessive yearning to recreate ourselves as 'new Jews. Iyar is, in fact, the direct descendant of the wandering Jew, a peripatetic, not to say pathetic, traveler, who yearns to roam endlessly in the "Go forth from your land" tradition of the Bible, which is encoded in our genes. Nevertheless, few will be able to escape their Israeli shackles, the excess baggage.

An Israeli will always remain an Israeli no matter how much he tries to repress his identity. A part of him will remain Israeli abroad - the same way Israelis have not been able to rid themselves of the Diaspora experience within themselves, even though they have tried hard to do so; the same way Yiddish has survived hidden beneath Israeli "revitalized" Hebrew. Israeliness is a palimpsest embodying many different influences from the Diaspora.

That is not to say it hasn't introduced anything new, only that we must recognize its complexity and try not to whitewash it with one-dimensionalism.

Lux et veritas Nava Semel is an informed Israeli, who cares about and conducts a dialogue with Jewish history, admitting that "the backpack I'm carrying contains a novel by Spanish author Adolfo Garcia Ortega's [whose hero is] 3-year-old Hurbinek, who died at Auschwitz.

Indeed, her love of the beautiful, multilayered Israeli language is apparent, and she is interested in a broad range of linguistic issues.

Indeed, her love of the beautiful, multilayered Israeli language is apparent, and she is interested in a broad range of linguistic issues. Too bad Nava didn't tell Lucy that her name means the same thing as Iyar's: Lux in Latin is "light," and the Hebrew biblical phrase "urim ve tummim" "light and truth" is translated as "Lux et veritas," which happens to be the motto of Yale University.

As Yale students tell their Harvard peers: But will they stay together, or will Iyar end up marrying someone just a little bit more Israeli? Can it be bridged? After all, two partners are never perfectly matched even if they do come from the same background. Will there not come a point where Lucy and Iyar will be inevitably torn apart by some basic misunderstanding arising from their different cultural backgrounds?

My blunt, arrogant and impertinent answer is, first, that the reason she survived Auschwitz is to have great-grandchildren, whether Jewish or not.

Second, she survived so that she can accept people as they are - regardless of their race - and she should thus be happy if Iyar should marry an Australian, Chinese, Argentinean or, God forbid, a German or Palestinian.

Everyone plays the same beat with no conductor or plan," Nava writes. There are moments in life which make an Israeli - even if he is an officer in a commando unit or an enthusiastic supporter of the hawkish Avigdor Lieberman - feel like "nobody has ownership over land" and want to lash out against the idea of "nationality.

Such moments of "hypnotic beauty" remind us of the wastefulness of focusing on the negative. What, then, is the key characteristic of the Israeli community in Byron Bay, which differentiates it from most other expatriate communities, including Israeli ones?

Unlike their compatriots who settle in cities say, Los Angeles and Melbourne , Byron-based Israelis are spiritualists seeking peace, calm and serenity. I know of many Israelis who moved there even though they made more money back home. Some suffer from war-related trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder, either personal or collective: He left confused and heartbroken, but did not slam the door behind him," Semel describes Avshalom, an Israeli living in Byron.

Elsewhere, she comes across Odayah, who split her time between Israel and Australia. After a year's absence, she returned to Byron, where "she can leave a package on a bench without it being blown up because it looks like a bomb.

I'll catch the first flight back and enlist. I will not abandon my friends.
