Shabbat Shalom from Eretz Yisrael

It looks like winter has arrived. The weather is colder, in Jerusalem it was raining today. Yes, the Kineret's water level is important. Actually, I dont know the latest measurement, but the last I found states that the water level of the Kinert is - 213.67m, -67cm below the lower red line.

If one considers that a ruler is 30 cm, the amount of water below the red line is over two rulers worth. Multiply that my the full surface area of the Kineret and that is quite a lot of water required.

You got it, keep up the davening, we want that water level rising this year.

Weather reports state thunder storms are expected for Shabbos, so make sure to have your Siddur with you with the Brachah for thunder and recite the Brachah when hearing the thunder.

Well, it's Thursday again so time to begin Shabbos preparations if you have not already begun.

We hope you have had a good and blessed week and are feeling settled in this precious Land.

Remember candle lighting is earlier again this week. In Jerusalem, candle lighting times will be:

Friday, November 18, 2011Light Candles at: 3:59 pm
Shabbat, November 19, 2011Shabbat Ends: 5:17 pm

If you are in another area of Eretz Yisrael, please make sure you have the correct time to light your Shabbat Candles. For other areas of the world, you need the correct time for there too.

Shabbat Times can be found on  follow the link and select the city for where you will be.

Shabbat Shalom
