Welcome back to Gilis Good Newsletter #7 Another complicated week. It’s been another strange week.  While things have been quiet at least where I am, down south and not only they’ve spent the whole week in bomb shelters as the sirens have been wailing constantly.  A comforting thought is that Tzahal is really doing serious damage to Hamas on many fronts.  Let’s hope the result is a lasting return to… Read More »Week 2 of Operation “Guardian of the Walls”, Shavuot, and More in Gili’s Good Newsletter #7
