We are back - Sorry About the Delay!

We apologize for the week or so of not posting on this blog. Yes, we do have many more wonderful newsy articles ready to be edited and posted. One very necessary word to learn in coming to Israel is Savlanut סבלנות which means patience.

We ask you to be patient as we get back into the swing of our regular work.

Here are some images that might help to explain what kept us from blogging.

On the 8th December 2009, we held a women's event entitled "The Unique Role of Jewish Women in Hastening the Redemption." Thank G-d we did have a wonderful group of women.

Sara Yocheved Rigler was our first speaker. Sara lives in the Old City of Jerusalem and is a very inspiring person to get to know.

Michele Thaler very kindly shared her personal story of what lead to her being in a wheelchair and how she uses her experience to help others. Some of her work now is in working with the disabled population.
If you have questions related to being disabled in Israel, send them in, if we can not answer, we can try to direct you to Michele or through her to find someone who can assist you.

If you are interested in purchasing one or more of Rabbi Greenbaum's books, please visit our online bookstore

Rabbi Fishel Jacobs greeted us with a wonderful warm smile. He shared a bit about his latest book, Two Kings and how it relates to the strength of Jewish women in Hastening the Redemption.
