Ki Yachol Nuchal!

New olah; mom and wife. In small ways, every day, trying to rectify the error in judgement of my zaydies, the meraglim. "See these big grapes? We can make really big wine!"

Shana Tova u’Metuka, l’Kulam!

Posted by rutimizrachi on 28/09/2008

Yom rishon, 28 Elul 5768.    

May the cooling, gentle Shabbat rain be a siman that Hashem has so much bracha for the year 5769 that He is giving us an early taste of overflowing blessings to come.  May this year be a year of simcha, spiritual growth, success, and good health for Klal Yisrael, here in this Holiest of Lands, and everywhere in His world.


To our new friends —

We have now lived here for nearly a year. If we were to make a slogan about the Neve Daniel kehilla, based upon our experiences here, it would be “Always Ready to Help a Jew.”

People to whom we give rides say that Neve Daniel residents are famous for offering rides more frequently than any other community.

Whether you need a date, a beer (not for your date), an Ace bandage or a mini-trampoline — you can usually receive offers for several within minutes of posting to one of the on-line lists.

And if you need to know the wind speed, where to get a Canadian passport, or how to say “chicken pox” in Tamil or Sinhala, you can get the answer from one of the residents.

We love this town!  

May each and every resident have a 5769 filled with simcha, bracha, spiritual growth, and success — in good health! (Next year, bs”d, we’ll be able to say this b’Ivrit.)

With love, from Ruti, Avi, Aryeh and Dani

    Schvach: Well, YOU know how to make a lady’s day! Thanks for the headline. We were semi-attached to NBN, as we came during “Student Week.” A pleasure to meet you. (Though after your Palin commentary, we’ll be meeting in groups.) Shana tova to you and yours!
