In Eretz Yisroel Today

On Sunday morning, when I left the house I, was surprised to be greeted with glorious sunshine. The weather forecast had predicted that our Indian summer was coming to a close and clouds and rain were predicted for the rest of the week. Clear, bright mornings tend to energize people. As I went on my way, I observed those around me on their way to shul, school and work with a positive attitude.

On Edge

As the unpredictable wave of terror continues to escalate, causing irreversible loss and pain to acheinu Bnei Yisroel, we are doing our best to function. As we bentched licht on Shabbos Parshas Bereishis following the erev Shabbos music and siren, I reflected with my family how many people’s lives have been catastrophically changed since last erev Shabbos. We found comfort in knowing, “ba Shabbos ba menuchah.”

Eyewitness Account Of The Levayos Of The Paris Kedoshim

The painful scene has become shockingly familiar. A convoy of ambulances and emergency vehicles made the slow, quiet ascent to Yerushalayim, approaching Givat Shaul accompanied by the victims’ grieving families and friends and a cross section of thousands of people from all over Eretz Yisroel, including many French olim, who converged on Har Hamenuchos for the heart-wrenching levayos.

Disease Leads to an Awful Discovery

The son of a doctor in London was afflicted with a dermatological condition known as asthma of the skin, a severe type of dermatitis. The doctor took his son several times to Davos, Switzerland, where the unique combination of chlorophyll from the tall trees, air, and elevation combine to form optimum conditions for relieving this painful skin disease. After spending a few weeks in Davos, the child began to feel much better.

Diary from Yerushalayim-Operation Protective Edge

Last Monday night, when sirens wailed through Yerushalayim for the first time, everyone was caught off guard. Although the rising tensions, particularly in the southern regions, were unnerving, Yerushalayim was thought to be out of the line of fire of rocket attacks.

Lag Ba'omer 5773: From Yerushalayim To Meron

I have now been in Eretz Yisroel for close to 11 years, and one way or another, I have had the zechus to spend part of Lag Ba’omer at the kever of Rabi Shimon bar Yochai in Meron for the last 11 years. Each year has its own flavor and this year will definitely be amongst the most memorable ones. On Thursday, reports from Meron described the anticipation in the air as the finishing touches were made to all the hachnosas orchim tents and final preparations were arranged to accommodate the more than 10,000 people who would be coming to spend Shabbos in Meron.

How Will Your Children Remember You?

Chizuk for Neshei Chayil of Klal Yisroel A Pre-Pesach Conversation with Rebbetzin Sara Meisels It was both a pleasure and an honor to have a pre-Pesach conversation with my longtime acquaintance, Rebbetzin Sara Meisels of Bat Yam. Rebbetzin Meisels is the wife of Rav Yaakov Yisroel Meisels, rov and rosh yeshiva of Kiryat Bobov-Bat Yam and daughter of the Bobover Rebbe, Rav Shlomo Halberstam zt”l. A meyucheses of many generations of chassidishe rebbes, she possesses the regal presence of a fartzeitisher rebbetzin with her refreshing life view of a contemporary mother and wife. Once the conversation started, her vibrant personality spilled over and it was a non-stop narrative.

Diary from Yerushalayim: Purim 5771 and its Aftermath

Wednesday afternoon, at 3:02 p.m., just five minutes after I walked through the door, my cell phone started ringing. I followed the sound and rummaged through my pocketbook in time to hear the desperate voice on the other end. “Mommy, where are you?” “At home,” I replied. There was an audible sigh of relief. My oldest daughter then told me to stay put, as there was a terror attack outside Binyanei Ha’umah, a location I frequent at least twice a day and where I had been not an hour earlier. After three years of relative quiet, the tenseness of being in Eretz Yisroel, a nation surrounded by 70 wolves, was back in the air.
