The bustling metropolis pictured above is Tel Aviv!
Not sure if it’s something to boast about, but Tel Aviv jumped five spots to grab the number one spot on the list of the world’s most expensive cities. When you consider that Damascus is the cheapest, it helps put it in perspective. #BoomingEconomyProblems
Happy Chanukah to all our customers and a special thank you to the 500+ customers that placed orders and sent a ‘sweet hug’ over Chanukah. If you didn’t order yet, you can order for the last days of Chanukah on Sunday and Monday!
Thank you to everyone that donated and supported our campaign to bring Chanukah to our soldiers on the front lines. Here are some of the pictures we were able to capture. Look at the faces!
Omicron! Omicron showed up just in time for Chanukah. Just when we were feeling confident. Thankfully, the government acted quickly, and there are only two confirmed cases in Israel so far. Unfortunately, the government’s quick actions caused many people who had planned a trip to Israel for Chanukah to reschedule. Travel to Israel is restricted for the next two weeks, and mandatory quarantines for travelers are being enforced.
Iran is in the news again as it seems the world’s attempts to create a new nuclear deal are not producing any fruit. Unfortunately, it appears as if a conflict with Iran is inevitable.
Chanukah has been busy with kids on vacation throughout the week. Israelis flocked to national parks, Jerusalem, and activities. Groups are doing night tours to view the chanukiyas all over Jerusalem. There is a lot going on and it’s beautiful to see. We got a little bit of wet weather Wednesday morning but the rest of the week should be dry and pleasant.
Shabbat and Sunday is Rosh Chodesh Tevet so we wish you all a beautiful, warm, happy, and meaningful Chanukah and a Chodesh Tov, and great month ahead.
As always, I hope to make you smile with some articles and nuggets from the past week.
