American Girl June 2009 Rebecca Rubin, 1st historically correct Jewish doll - Hilton Head Island Packet

She's what little girls and rabbis have been waiting for: Rebecca Rubin is the first historically correct Jewish-American doll.
American Girl, a Wisconsin-based company that is part of toy giant Mattel, just released the newest doll in its historical character line. The 18-inch Rebecca Rubin comes with a storybook that describes her life as a 9-year-old in 1914, the daughter of Russian-Jewish immigrants, growing up on Manhattan's Lower East Side.
The cost: $95. Add another $23 for the other five books in the collection, and more for accessories such as kittens ($22), pajamas ($54) and a bedding ensemble ($118). Rebecca comes with a Sabbath set of candlesticks and challah bread for $68.

The idea of a Jewish doll was already popular, said Julie Parks, a company spokeswoman. 'It's really one of the top requests we've had for a long time.'
The doll shows 'the complete Americanization of the Jews,' said Rabbi David Mark of Temple Sholom in Pompano Beach, Fla. 'We have a cultural icon we can call our own.'

Japan Dec 2007 Vacationing at the beach - shigaki Island
After visiting Okinawa for the first time last year, we made the decision to go back every year. This time however, we decided to spend our time on Ishigaki Island - or Ishigaki Jima [石垣島> in Japanese.
Ishigaki <b>Island</b> (click to enlarge)
 
Stayed at the ANA resort hotel not too far from the airport. Pretty decent facilities. The water in the beach area gets really shallow depending on the tide.

Example of the food they served at the hotel.

This time round managed to get a more decent car. If you are visiting then you really need a car to get around the island.
Ishigaki <b>Island</b> (click to enlarge)
 
The schedule was pretty much the same as last year. Drive > discover nice beach > jump in > dry off > drive > discover nice beach...

Many warning signs on the beaches telling folks to lookout for poisonous jellyfish.
However, didn't spot any signs asking folks to look out for bikini girls.
