As I work on this posting there is a funeral going on downstairs for the head Rabbi of a Yeshiva (school) across the street from my daughter’s apartment. A heinous attack took place in the western part of Jerusalem this morning as people were leaving morning prayers. Four were killed and nine are in the hospital. It’s very subdued here in the city today and we have heavy hearts wondering how peace will ever come to this part of the world.
End of last week we spent some time in my favorite part of Israel, the Galilee and explored a bit of the Golan, the area bordering between Israel and Syria that became part of Israel in 1967.
