"Here, surrounded by these walls,

I live with my most beloved friend..."

" loneliness"

"My loneliness and I, we hold hands

in the dark and watch the tele"

"Time is our worst enemy Boaz.

It has no mercy!"

"Some day you too will realize that"

"...Or maybe not"

"You'll soon leave from the post office"

"You'll drive to the University with

your car, a Subaru of 1981"

"In the break, between classes,

you'll have a coffee with applecake"

"And you'll smile to all the girls"

"Afterwards, you'll drive home,

to your girlfriend, who loves you"

"But me Boaz? Who'll love me?"

"At night, you hold her in your arms.

But who will hold me in his arms?"

"I've already written too much!

I can't keep my secrets from you"

"I think of you all the time!"

In Egypt, at Tel-el-Amarna, on the banks

of the Nile and in the winter of 1887...

...there were discovered clay tablets

written in cuneiform Akkadian language

The Akkadian was the international

spoken language, the lingua franca...

...for the Egyptian Empire of that time

and for many Middle Eastern nations.

Something like english today

Therefore, how can these letters sent

from Canaan help us today?

How can they help us understand hebrew

the language that we speak today?

Who will bring to light the

secrets of the Amarna letters?

- Professor Richlin?

- Ah, Boaz!

Have you received any reply

about the scholarship?

That's why I wanted to talk to you

I thought that maybe you could

help me with this matter?

I make recommendations only. You must

be patient. It always takes time.

We've no house in Jerusalem and I wanted

to know if I should start looking for one

Patience! It takes time!

- Coffee sir?

- Yes

Black, one sugar please.

Thank you prof. Richlin

Remember this song?

"There was a dream by the window"
