Welcome back to Gilis Good Newsletter #12


After a ton of screaming and yelling, there is a new government in Israel. 

Is that good?  Time will tell. 

While hecklers were heckling Bennett during his inaugural address, his kids were busy in the balcony sending love. 


Netanyahu was thanked many times by Bennett for all he has done for the country. Only the one above knows if that was his last dance as prime minister, but either way, we’re all indebted to Bibi for doing so much for the country. We’ll only find out more and realize how amazing he was in the years to come.

The march went on. The flag march did happen yesterday largely without incident. The main incidents were balloons from Gaza. The kind that explode. In response, the IDF launched a bombing raid on Gaza. I think that was new PM Bennett’s way of saying. We’re not going to tolerate anything.



We’re officially not wearing masks! Whether inside or outside, we’re officially done with masks except for particular situations, like hospitals.

Picture for illustrative purposes only.

There is so much more to talk about but let’s get to the fun articles.

Wishing you all a gitten shabbos, and a Shabbat Shalom.

Some like it hot, some not. It’s easy, gluten-free, vegetarian, and popular in Israel. Even though it’s GF, it’s best eaten with plenty of gluten.
