Har Homa

Har Homa is the home of many families now, it was once in the news as an "obstacle to peace" but people have calmed down now.  The prices have also gone up, so try to find an affordable apartment, "Good Luck"

Blessings on the Trees!

There are many blessings that we say every day, some more than others.
Here is a blessing that we only say once a year during the month of Nissan.
We bless two flowering trees, that will grow fruit.  Since this is a leap year,
it is best to say the blessing early in the month while the three still has flowers.

We have a very nice neighbor who has planted such trees, and they even
put up the blessing so everyone can come and do this mitzvah!

New Terrorist Attack in Jerusalem


A new act of Islamic barbary, 41 innocent people wounded.
One person has already died.  In front of Benyane Haumah, 
a suspicious object abandoned at the bus stop 74 exploded,
and  wounded 51 people, 4 seriously.
The explosive charge was placed at a public telephone 
booth and was detonated as two packed buses passed by.

This is a new provocation from the Islamic barbarians 
after the launching of 54 missiles in one day, 
and the massacre of a Jewish family in Itamar, with 
2 children and a 2 month baby butchered.

Muslims are feasting and distributing candies for 
this new barbaric act.

Since I was next to the scene of the terrorist 
attack, here are some pictures.

NOUVEL ACTE DE BARBARIE ISLAMIQUE

Un nouvel acte de la barbarie islamique- 
41 innocents blessés.Une personne agee est 
decedee de ses blessures.La charge explosive 
etait sur un telephone public, et le terroriste 
l'a fait exploser alors que 2 bus passaient.




C'etait en face du Palais des Nations a Jérusalem 
le contenu d'un sac a explosé, faisant 41 victimes,
donc quatre sérieusement et un mort.


Le quartier a immédiatement été bouclé par 
la police qui recherche les auteurs de cette 
monstrueuse barbarie, qui intervient dans un 
climat de recrudescence de tirs de roquettes, 
54 missiles en un jour, depuis la bande 
de Gaza sur les zones d'habitation israéliennes,
et le massacre, par un islamiste, d'une famille 
juive, dont un bébé de trois mois et deux 
autres enfants, la semaine dernière à Itamar. 
Summum de la monstruosité, les musulmans fetent 
cette boucherie dans la joie.


Comme j’etais pres de la scene de l’attaque 
terroriste, voici quelques photos.

PurimAs we read in the Megilla, Purim is on the 14th for all places that are not walled, and in Shushan and other walled cities, Jerusalem which is one of them, Shushan Purim is held the next day. So everyone in Jerusalem had a 4 day "weekend"  and spread out the Purim fun!
