End of the Year Post

We interrupt this Elul-induced blogging break to keep up with some of the latest events happening out there:

Rav Ovadia Yosef, Shlit"a, is recovering from a cardiac catheterization procedure that he underwent on Monday morning. There were posters for Tehillim and a Ta'anit Dibbur (fast from speaking) in addition to a Kotel prayer-rally aimed at his speedy recovery. I saw 2 different versions of his mother's name - either הרב עובדיה יוסף בן גוּרגִ’יָה or הרב עובדיה יוסף בן ג'ורג'יה.

Edom and Yishma'el are going at each other again due to the statements of the Pope. Let's hope the Jews can stay on the sidelines for this raging battle.

2 earthquakes in 8 days. Hmmm...

Those trying to make a To'eva-parade in Yerushalayim don't give up. The new date is scheduled for Nov. 10th. Hashem Yerahem.

Let's hope this coming year of 5767 will truly be a year of ונשאתי לכל המקום בעבורם as Rav Shmueli said.


תכלה שנה וקללותיה
תחל שנה וברכותיה
תזכו לשנים רבות - נעימות וטובות

Yes! Ask around for a Heter for us Hutznikim to start Veten Tal Umatar early - just for 1 day. Maybe an Et La'asot LaHashem type of Heter. :)

Lots of heavy hail, and maybe the streets should shake a bit too.

Shannah tovah!

May 5667 be a year of restoration, materially and physically, for Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael. A year of national reflection. May many make it from the Galut to Zion. May Man of Truth stand up in Zion and may Torah come forth there.
