Standing here screaming

Sometimes people annoy me. Other times I am stuck in a really funny situation. All in all, I just got to share it!

The good and the bad, I love Israel!

The disgusting news is, I was walking with Estee the other day and I saw signs all over the place with a picture of a dead man that read in big letters"STOP ISRAELI TERRORISTS! STOP ISRAELI OCCUPATION OF PALESTINE! STOP US FUNDING TO ISRAELI TERRORISTS" needless to say, I was sickened! I had my neighbors tear down as many signs as they can find. Here is the information on the rally they are having for this stopping of israeli terrorists....
It really disgusts me. Ignorant people will see signs such as this and believe it. What disgusts me even more are these pictures The second one in particular really boils my blood. Don't even get me started on that so-called group of Jews!

I came home today with an email filled with beautiful pictures of Israeli soldiers. After watching Jack's videos on the filth that we are fighting against, it made me happy to see Hashem's side of the fight. Look at the kiddush hashem these soliders are making. But, unfortunately we will never see a single one of these pictures in the news....

GO ISRAEL GO!!

I apologize that the wrong pictures were in here, here is a real picture of an Israeli soldier. Check out Balaboosteh for more war images

My trip to Poland


I recently came across the journal I kept when I went to Poland on Heritage my year in Israel. We spent a few days in Praugue before taking a 12 hour bus ride through the night to Poland. I wrote about a lot of things. What I saw. What the historian on the trip told us, and of course, my feelings. Some of the emotion that I experienced may be a bit intense but it is so real.
I decided that I am interested in forming a blog where each post will be a different day's entry. I am interested in doing this because I want to share my experience. All of it. Even the raw emotions. I will not change any of the grammar errors. because I want it to be the same as when I wrote it at 18 years old.
With everything going on in the world today, I think it is important to remember a little more often what Amalek is capable of.

Please let me know if you are interested.
Thank you

Yashar Koach

Despite the current situation, these people among many others did not change their plans to make aliyah.
I admire these people.

What we can do..

I got the following email that lists what we can do for our brothers and sisters in Israel:

The public is asked to pray for 4 children, some unconscience,
critically injured in Tsfat:
Michal bat Revital
Bat-tzion bat Revital
Avraham Natan bat Revital
Odel Hannah bat Revital

Rabbis are calling on Jews around the world to recite a special prayer
for those Israelis in danger, in areas within rocket range, both in
northern and southern Israel.

In addition, as women light Sabbath candles, they are requested to
recite a special prayer for the hostage soldiers;
Gilad ben Aviva (Shalit)
Eldad ben Tova (Regev)
Ehud ben Malka (Goldwasser)

One of our members asked me to forward this to you:

Please tell your list that it is important to:
- Make all your brachos OUT LOUD and say AMEN.
- Daven for Eretz Yisrael when taking challah and hadlakas neros.
- Get as many people to say tehillim as possible especially people who
don't usually say them, or people without an observant background.
- Work on our middos, especially judging favorably, because that can
draw Hashem's mercy and He will then judge us favorably. We should
overlook slights and wrongdoing and then Hashem will overlook our
wrongdoing.
- Any one mitzva you do could tip the balance to merit our winning over
enemy.
- TV and news won't help you, but tehillim, tfilla. Chessed and Torah
learning will.

And remember: trust Hashem, think good and it will be good. Speak
positively about the future and don't focus on the negative.

Jameel has a full list of people to daven for in case my list is missing any.

All in a day's work

Just some pictures of some of the fun activities at work! I blocked out the children to respect their privacy. The first picture is of me at the kid's graduation. The second picture is when the fire men came to visit school during community helper's week (I had a crush on the one on the left...My assistant embaressed me and made them take pictures with me!!) The next one is when the police man visited. The last two are from when the lizard guy came to visit. He brought tons of reptiles and for some reason I must have a "pick one me please" sign on my head because the reptile guy kept chasing me around the room with his animals. I was trying to get the kids to touch the snake so I had to touch it.
