The size of Israel

I was asked by many of my friends that live in the USA,Canada and Europe about the size of Israel and the geographical location,so with out many words I will let the pictures tell the story.







So as you can see it is small BUT beautiful take a look Imax fly over Jerusalem

Now you can also understand what goes through our heads when we RV in the USA or around lake Michigan that is the size of the whole country.

We used to say that we have everything - small and only ONE,one lake,one Mountain,One river ,one desert and one Dead Sea.

On one of our RV trips in the US  I saw a vehicle plate from  Minnesota that says “10000 lake State” (they have more than 16000 lakes) so I asked the person to give us ONE lake so it will Double the number of lakes we have and Minnesota will not even notice ….It did not work somehow…

Thank you for your interest.

Purim-Jewish festival

Purim is a Holyday where we all wear costumes  ,have street parades and have fun.

The events that led to the holiday of Purim can be found in Megillat Esther ,

Megillat Esther is the only book in the Scriptures that never mentions Hashem's name even once. The miracle of Purim is a hidden one, (with the hand of Hashem only revealed through the incredible events). But when you 'read between the lines' you see the Hand of Hashem. There are no coincidences in the story.

If you want to read more about it please hit this link PURIM.

This is one of the holidays the kids love the most because of the following reasons:




Here are some pictures of this exhausting day (For us).

It is not a Holyday without some snacks.

Spring is in the air

The 2 months that I  less like weather wise are January and February ,it is always cold,windy,grey and colorless.

This year we had an extremely cold February and for the first time after many years we had heavy snow on mountain tops and in Jerusalem what brought some joy especially to kids that had a chance to skip school and play in the snow.

At the first week of March the weather changed ,some blue skies are seen again ,temperatures are rising and effects everyone and everything-yes the weather is dictating our lives, we seem more joyful when it is sunny and warm and become more open and welcoming.

The first that feels the turnover from Winter to Spring are the animals,the trees and the flowers,so we took a drive up north to Mount Tavor and this is what we saw….

One picture worth a 1000 words.

Till we meet again..
