  • Cosmic X waxes poetic - Mr. Baiter - about a recent visitor to Israel
  • Speaking about Cosmic, he once had a series of posts on "The Holy City Of Tel Aviv". Now, the Jerusalem Post has followed suit. 544 active synagogues and few, if any, non-Jewish places of worship.
  • Geulah Perspectives has an awesome post on what we need to do:
    And while it is nice, and I'm sure Hashem is happy that we are looking forward to Moshiach, Hashem wants action. I'm sorry to say this, but it's not worth too much when we sit around for an hour and check every news source to see if Obama is going to be Gog. It's just not. What is worth something is actually doing something.
  • The Shelah's Tefilla for our children is a Mukdam this year. Although usually said on Erev Rosh Hodesh Sivan, it should rather be said the day before (Friday). So says Rav Shmueli in the first 10 minutes of this week's shiur and also the Mashiach Is Coming blog, quoting Rabbi Eli Mansour.
  • Speaking of Rosh Hodesh Sivan, Nava's doomsday date is fast approaching. Shirat Devorah puts it into perspective.
  • Akiva's friend considers Netanyahu to be MBY

I have come to really like Tel Aviv, and I see it as more religious than its reputation.
In addition, Hamodia recently ran a fascinating series over three weeks about the history of frum Jewry (specifically from a chassidic viewpoint - shteiblech and rebbes who used to live in TA) in tel Aviv
