Getting Ready for A Simcha

Baruch Hashem!

A first grandson after two granddaughters!  We had three daughters before our two sons were born.  They should all be healthy.

"Nu?  What?  No politics?" You ask. "But this is Arutz 7!"

Well, here in the eye of the storm, where our every breath is a political statement, adding another Jewish soul to the world, celebrating G-d's miracles is considered political.

The nearby Arabs are building mansions, and we're condemned for planting trees.  Foreign "peace" volunteers and dangerously perverse-thinking Israelis think nothing of destroying anything Jewish.

But we know we will win in the end.  The question is... when will what be?  So we celebrate G-d's miracles.

Shabbat Shalom and Chodesh Tov
