Earthquake Felt in Israel
An earthquake measuring 5.5 whose epicenter was around the Cyprus area was felt from Be'er Sheva to Tzefat.
In Israel, the Perasha read this week is Behar. The second verse of Behar contains:
The earthquake doesn't seem like much of a sabbath by the land until you see that the gematria of this phrase equals that of:וְשָׁבְתָה הָאָרֶץ, שַׁבָּת לַיהוָהthen shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD
I'm not sure how meaningful this is. I'm just thinking out loud...היה רעידת אדמה כ' אייר תשע"בThere was an earthquake 20 Iyar, 5772
