Getting up early to catch the color!

When we changed to Winter Time here in Israel, most people are still asleep when the sun rises. But they miss out on the sky the color turquoise.  This shade of blue is the inspiration for the Tzizit techelet. But if you wait and get up later you miss it. I captured the techelet for you this morning!

Wrather report calls for Rain and Storm today October 25th

The weather report calls today for Rain and storm, but this morning it is a balmy 26 degrees,not a cloud in sight. We have just changed to Winter Time here in Israel, and traditionally we start to say the blessing for rain. Well I did bring a jacket but forgot the umbrella.  We will see later on if we will actually have rain. So enjoy the nice weather while it lasts!
