07 AV 5773: TISHA B'AV OCCURS IN TWO DAYS, COMPLETING MORE THAN SIX-YEARS SINCE I STARTED THIS BLOG. ISRAEL IS YET AGAIN NECESSARILY AT WAR AGAIN IN GAZA.
ORIGINAL DEDICATION OF THIS BLOG: "The Three Weeks" commences today 17 Tammuz 5767. May "The Three Weeks" be marked by the birth of Mashiach. In the mundane sense of "mashiach" this Blog is dedicated to peace in Israel and the World -- may peace begin this year -- may we see Peace and Rest in Sderot, and the safe return home of Gilad Shalit, Ehud Goldwasser, Eldad Regev, Guy Hever, Ron Arad, Yehuda Katz, Tzvi Feldman, and Zachary Baumel."
TODAY 07 AV 5773: Miraculously, Gilad Shalit is safely home alive after his five-year captivity by Hamas (only HaShem knows, what may have befallen him during his captivity). Ehud Goldwasser, Eldad Regev, Guy Hever, Ron Arad, Yehuda Katz, Tzvi Feldman, and Zachary Baumel are either missing or known to be dead. As to the present conflict in Gaza, there is no peace in sight; at best there may be a ceasefire -- may there soon be a just ceasefire!
