Ziva keeps two calendars on her wall and in her heart.
Her colleagues are indulging in borderline obscene tales of the turkeys, gravy and stuffing of their childhoods, along with tales of which relative was most likely to commit an inebriated faux pas at the Thanksgiving table.
As they should. It is November 23, after all.
But for Ziva, it’s also the 16th of Kislev. In a week, she will welcome Channukah. She will celebrate as a Jew, but for the first time in her life, not as an Israeli.
She loves her people, but she has made her choice.
