We hope you all enjoyed a beautiful Pesach, and we’re happy to be back serving your chametz needs with the finest chametz items in town.
Speaking of yummy chametz, Elite got in some hot water when salmonella was discovered in its factory in Nof Galil, forcing a recall of tons of delicious candy bars, wafers, and cookies. Tons of these delightful products have been pulled from store shelves in the biggest recall in the history of Israel.
Today is Yom HaShoah, and the entire country came to a halt at 10 AM to mark the six million victims of the holocaust. Last night was the national ceremony commemorating the day with dignitaries attending, including president Yitzchak Herzog and PM Naftali Bennett. Both emplored both sides of the political aisle to do more to cooperate and refrain from demonizing the opposition, especially with comparisons to Nazi Germany.
Israel has been making heroic efforts to rescue Holocaust survivors from Ukraine from the current conflict, and 20 survivors made it to Israel last night right in time for Yom Hashoah.
Finally, Israel21c did a story about Pratik Thakker, an Indian in Tel Aviv that has grown his influence by consistently posting on LinkedIn daily and grown to 150,000 followers. It’s a fascinating story about an interesting person. Check it out.
As always, I hope to make you smile with some articles and nuggets from the past week.
