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 peace and quiet.

Shavuot was this week and we thank all our wonderful customers that ordered for the chag.  We really hope everything was enjoyed.

So with that backdrop, we’ll try to find some sweet nuggets or at least meaningful nuggets.  Sweet is hard to find on weeks like this.

Here we go.

The iron dome has been amazing. From many bedroom windows, we were able to watch and hear in amazement and fear as the intercepters blew up the Hamas missiles.  It was reminiscent of star wars and then someone made this.

The electric company workers announced they won’t fix the electric lines to Gaza that were damaged by Hamas rockets until the Israeli captives are returned.

The first 15-year-olds got their covid vaccines.

We have a few more nuggets below.  I hope you check em out. 

Wishing you all a Shabbat Shalom. 

We’d love to hear from you and all you need to do is to:

Just. Hit. Reply.
