Welcome back to Gilis Good Newsletter #4

We had a week here in Israel. ┬áPolitically I’m not sure if anyone knows what’s going on. ┬áThe United Arab Emirates-owned Mubdala Petroleum is purchasing Delek Drilling’s 22% share of the Tamar gas field for 1.1 Billion Dollars so that’s nice. ┬á

We saw a supermoon on Tuesday night but so did the whole world it seems.

People are jumping through hoops and coming to Israel for the first time since the beginning of Covid. 

The weather is getting more spring and summer-like as we prepare for Yom Yerushalayim, and Shavuot in the coming weeks. 

We’d love to hear your thoughts about this newsletter or anything else you’d like to discuss. ┬á
