Jewish Devon Avenue

The Chicago Tribune tells how almost all Jewish businesses have left or are leaving Devon Avenue in Chicago.

Rafi also blogged about it.

I saw this article earlier today and sent the article in an email to a few people with the comment that Jews have heeded the call in Devarim 2:3:
רַב-לָכֶם, סֹב אֶת-הָהָר הַזֶּה; פְּנוּ לָכֶם, צָפֹנָה.

'Ye have compassed this mountain long enough; turn you northward.

One of the people I emailed replied that this was only after the Jews heeded the call to go there in the first place in Bamidbar 33:45:
וַיַּחֲנוּ, בְּדִיבֹן [גד]


Now, it's time for the next verse:

וַיִּסְעוּ, מִדִּיבֹן [גד]
