“Everyone here is constantly traveling back and forth. And we've been here for almost three months and we still haven't moved from here," recounts Judy Mozes at the beginning of the sixth episode of her web series Judy in the Big City, after Israeli friends she and her partner Avi Rotenberg met have once again left. “Sometimes it pinches my heart when one of the friends travels back to Israel and suddenly I have this little pang of longing for the friends.”
The couple has been living in New York for three months now, and still, when a video from her friends in Israel is sent to her, it hits a small nerve, and with a trembling voice, she tells about the birthday celebrations of her close friend - celebrations she is missing.
Nevertheless, she wants to make it clear to anyone who thought she would easily break: "I spoke to Karen, and she told me, 'Well, you're definitely coming back in a week, two weeks, a month. It's not unreasonable.' And I told her that I don't think I'm coming back. I'm having a great time here; I've decided to stay."
The media personality has found herself in a new routine, has found a gym she is satisfied with and even managed to teach her trainer a few words in Hebrew. "I feel at home here. In the gym, they already greet me with 'Good morning, Judy,' and Matt, my trainer, is also cute. He already knows how to say Sababa. In the end, I might even convert him." And what is it like to be in the New York Pride Parade? Watch the full episode at the beginning of the article!
