Yana tells of a proverb that was passed down in her family from generation to generation "to love to the point of exhaustion, and to shake like a pear." When Yana immigrated to Israel, she had hair that was wild and too long for the Israeli heat, which forced her mother to torture her every morning and make sure her hair was tied down with braids.
