About Me

We have relocated from Israel to Albuquerque in 2012. Dima is working on his PHD in Indian Philosophy at UNM and participates in Students for Justice in Palestine and Micka is running a Hebrew school. We have a baby, Ella, who loves being outside, has a thing for electric cords and crawls like a guerrilla fighter!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Micka surfed in NYC, Dallas and China, and hosted quite a few people in Jerusalem and Haifa. Together, we surfed Jay's couch in San Francisco, and hosted several times in Albuquerque. Each and every time has been a pleasure and an educational experience.


literature. culture. counter-culture. social activism (mostly when done by others...) education. alternative education. communities. politics. people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

crossing the world to live and study at the US has been pretty amazing so far. Having a baby is quite amazing too, but in a different way...

Teach, Learn, Share

As guests: we would love to go see a school/ learn about a social project you're involved in/ go to a concert of a local group/ find the best place to get whatever the local food is/ take part in any religious ceremony (main sport events included)/ be invited to a family event (weddings are preferred to funerals...)/stay at home and watch a movie.

As hosts: We'd love to come explore with you and share what we know. Or can cook you an Israeli/Russian dinner and hear all about your day!
