Let us be grateful for the miracles HaShem has wrought!

8 Heshvan 5779
Erev Shabbat Vayetze'

Four hundred and seventy (470) rockets were fired into Israel in just over 24 hours this last round — a record — and only one person was killed! Amazing! Only HQB"H!!!

I commented on another blog:

 Let's appeal to HQB"H through tehillim for mercy on our nation! And then let us thank Him after it's all over, and give Him the credit He deserves.

 And so, I'm following up now. We all need to take some time to be thankful for the good as well as seeing the bad.

Hanukkah is nigh and we need to prepare! Study what you can about Hanukkah חנוכה now, my brothers and sisters!


DISCLAIMER: Some of the items in the links about Hanukkah are not exactly in its spirit. For instance, I'd never heard "Light One Candle" before today, even though I liked Peter, Paul and Mary when I was young (yes, I am in 'that age' range!). It resembles "Kumbaya" more than it does the story of the Maccabees, who would never recognize themselves in it.

Also, the videos have women singing, just in case you might want to avoid that. If you have better suggestions, please comment!

Lastly for today, we need to be extra vigilant since our government apparently has chosen dishonor and humiliation over victory and deterrence. Next post (be"H - I'm not sure when it will be), I'll present the best reason to make aliyah. I don't think you will have heard it quite this way before.

UPDATE 2018/12/05: still preparing that post...meanwhile, it's Hanukkah.

The video below has no women singing; it's R' Ephraim Sprecher explaining why revival of the dead is essential to Judaism.

Shabbat shalom umevorah!

What deserves attention the most is the saving of 50 soldiers who were let off of a bus a minute before a missile hit the bus!!! Even the Xian media publicized our miracle, quoting the Arab driver who said "God loves you. I just let off 50 soldiers from the bus. A minute later the bus was hit. 60 seconds earlier and you would have had 50 dead soldiers."

Do you guys hear what you're saying and quoting?

From what I understand, even the Arab driver and the Israeli soldier who was standing by the bus are recovering from their injuries. Thank G-d!!!!!!

Oh yes, and just because it's been all over the news lately, including this one from JPost: The one person who was killed in Ashkelon...was an Arab "Palestinian" from Halhul. Let's not forget that Halhul is the nearest town to where OUR 3 BOYS were found murdered after they had been kidnapped on 12 June 2014. Note its JEWISH ORIGINS!!! Its very NAME is from Sefer Yehoshua (book of JOSHUA)(therefore not during the times when Arabs inhabited it - our prophets Gad and Natan are buried there)!!!

This reminds me of the story i read not so long time ago:


Our Tzadikim here in Eretz Israel.
Soon, B'H they will be back with us!
In the mean time Hashem will protect our sanity between all what is happening by Shemen Zayit. This year we did the Mitzva of ourself collect Zeytim, bringing them into press, having Shemen Zayit after hard work, and Zeytim to pickle, after doing trumot and maaserot, now having SHEMEN ZAYIT ZACH USING FOR OR HA GANUZ.
What a delight to reside in Eretz Israel!!! And hard work... :) (Extra Virgin Olive Oil to prevent deseases, 2 spoons in the mornning, to drink...)
An ingredient well used in the Mediteranian diet, that keep the spirit strong and witty...
Fats protect the brain. Walnuts, avocado, OLIVE OIL, fat fish, Sunflower seed....real butter or fat Sheep/Goat Cheese.
Most of the brain is fat. Figure it out.
Now in Likutey Halachot of Rabbi Natan is much written about the link between MOAH AND SHEMEN.
Likutey Halachot about Chanuka. Amazing to see all the superlogical connections.
Take care.

Chanuka Sameah and Shabbat Shalom!
Don't forget to poure some olive oil on your Zeytim!! To keep the Daat of the Torah!
Green olives=Vitamin E! With Lemons, garlic, Laurel, in water and salt.
Black olives Vitamin K. In salt.
Kalamata olives=pure delight! with salt water with Vinegar and Rozemary or fresh Zaatar....all of them with the fresh oil.
Pickled after one week being in water the get the MAR out!
