What were her two meetings all about?
Who really is the Queen?
And who really is the King?
What’s all the excitement about touching the sceptre?
Was this a once-off meeting, or is it perhaps a meeting each of us encounters on a daily basis?
To find out more, you’ll have to come to the Shiur.
Alternatively set up a learning session with Rav Eliyahu to learn with him one-on-one.
As the Mikvah Funding Project progresses, we will, iy"H, add the information regarding which mikvah is assisted next and an estimate of how many women require this assistance each month.
Recently I was asked what life is like in the war zone or during the war currently taking place in
My husband and I are Olim Chadashim, currently living in Beitar Illit. We often hear planes flying overhead, but usually, Shabbos is quiet, except of course for the children and Shabbos Zemiros. Just two weeks ago, we were woken on Friday night by a strange sound. The planes were flying overhead, very low, very loud and at an unusual hour. Unable to switch on lights, we wondered what best to do.
We recited a few Tehillim, learnt a little Torah, and returned to sleep. The rest of Shabbos for us seemed like just another Shabbos, but no sooner had we completed Havdala than we discovered those planes were for a reason. The war in
Yes, we are in Beitar Illit and the war is in
Although my cousin returned her soul to Hashem a few years ago, her widower still lives there and hears every sound of missiles and other events taking place. Thank G-d their three children are currently elsewhere in

Winter had begun. It is really cold, and yet my aunt and uncle, pensioners who need to keep warm, were suddenly without electricity. True to the Jewish attitude, my aunt responded, “We will put on an extra jersey and wait for the electricity to be restored.”
A day later, again there was something in
Being prevented from visiting family is just one area that affected us. However, our work too has been affected. Since I am in the process of setting up a private practice, a colleague suggested that I meet with someone who is needing an experienced OT for an expanding private practice in
In addition to occupational therapy and alternative therapy, my husband and I are also involved in photography of Smachot. Just a few months ago, I gave a massage to a Kallah the day before her wedding. This Kallah happens to live in Beer Sheva and we have been working on how to meet up so that she can have another massage and consult with us regarding setting up a beautiful album of her wedding photographs. When the war in
We know others in the area too. To each of them we offer that they can come to stay with us if they wish to have a break from the war zone. Thus far their response is, “Thanks for caring, but life continues. We are OK. Yes there are a few rockets going off each day, but life continues.”
A few days ago, I had occasion to go into Yerushalayim. Travelling on the Egged Bus, two scenes caught my attention. The bus driver had the radio on, and the news began with a report of something taking place in Beer Sheva. Someone called out for everyone to keep quiet, and everyone did. There was absolute silence as a bus load of Jews listened to what was happening to our brethren in another part of
Later that day, on another bus, a comment caught my attention. The bus was crowded and one person shouted at another for wanting to get by to sit down. The response was not an argument, but rather an observation and request. “There is already a war in Eretz Yisrael, let us be peaceful.”
Each day I am sent names to add to my international Tehillim-group list – names of soldiers who have been injured together with names of others who need our prayers during this situation in
A very beautiful project began to partner with a soldier and do Tehillim and Torah learning in their merit, davening to Hashem to keep them safe. We too, have joined this project and set aside a little time each day to daven for our soldier.
Each day I am sent stories of something taking place. Just yesterday a friend in Tzfas shared a story from an Oleh Chadash who made Aliya to
The war might physically be taking place in the South of Israel and that is typically regarded as the war zone. However, a war in
