Ah, chocolate.

מָתוֹק-מָרִיר Though the mood was great yesterday here as the political nation of Israel celebrated 65 years of existence and prosperity, there’s a bittersweet element as well, as we remember the people of Boston who have experienced an event this week that we in Israel know all too well.
