After months of waiting, Israel is finally getting geared up for its first rain of the season. The excitement is palpable. Check out this post from one of my favorite groups on Facebook, ציידי שטפונות והטבע, Flash Flood Nature Hunters. I hope google translate can do it justice.
Friday it begins, it’ll strengthen on Shabbat, and it will hang out with us until Wednesday. So it’s going to be a great Shabbat for a cholent. 🍲
The whole country has been caught up in the horrible arrest of an Israeli couple in Turkey. Thankfully, the drama ended with their release, and they returned to Israel this morning. You can read about it below. Yay for happy endings!
Every Chanukah, we partner with The Michael Levin Base and an organization known as Achi Achi, which delivers sufganiyot to IDF soldiers all over the country. It’s a beautiful initiative, as Chanukah is often cold and rainy. While everyone is going to parties and having fun, these soldiers stand on the front lines, protecting that right. So it’s even more special when we show up with fresh sufganiyot for our Chayalim. You can help support this initiative here.
As always, I hope to make you smile with some articles and nuggets from the past week.
