Is that you start all these short notes and never post them and then you realize you want to - so here they come. Sorry for having been absent for a while. We took a vacation and then when we came back, between school and kids and this UN thing, my mind has been running in circles.
So while I clear through these posts, let me wish everyone a happy new year - Shana tova - may it be a year of health and prosperity, of happiness and peace. May it be a year of justice, of security, of truth. May our enemies be frustrated and unable to achieve even their most simple plans.
May our land be blessed with rain in the coming months and may every child be cherished and safe. May our children not be traumatized, may their nightmares end, their fears diminish. May our sons be safe as they make us safe. May they be blessed and know that all they do, is so appreciated and returned by our love.
May Elie find happiness in the coming year. May Shmulik be blessed in his new marriage. May Davidi grow this year and somehow may peace come so that his army days are safe. May my sons know no more war, no more terrorist attacks, no more rockets.
May Chaim come home - soon! And may Yaakov bring his family home as well. May my daughters - Amira and Aliza, Ariella and Lauren be blessed in the coming year. May the two who have joined our family in marriage know they are in our hearts and may my grandson...just wow...know only love and health and good things.
May it be a year of life for all of the House of Israel and all those who cherish freedom. May God bless Israel and those who love her and may we know the glory of our days and of the promises He has made to His people. May God bless the United States of America - and may it continue to light the world.
And may God grant His eternal justice to the murderers of Asher Palmer and his baby son Yehonatan. May this be a cursed year to our enemies and to those not willing to make peace with Israel. May they know the Wrath of the Most Exalted One.
