Things You See from Over Here

We stare at the images of devastation, both to personal property and to the very shoreline of the Eastern Seaboard, and we are aghast.

Now, Israel could stand to improve a whole lot, no doubt about it. I suspect that a million U.S. Jews could help with those improvements. A million Russians did, in very significant ways.

To be perfectly frank, I rarely bother to read the type of articles I just submitted for your consideration. But I hope that you’ll treat it seriously, because I know and love so many of you, and because I have a pretty good idea just how much better off you would be over here.

It’s 75 degrees in Netanya on an early Sunday morning. We expect 85, with a nice breeze in the afternoon. We get the occasional rain here, but it is rarely the frozen type. When we get two days of snow in Jerusalem the whole country goes nuts. Otherwise our weather is quite predictable: warm with a chance of a little less or a little more warm.

Come home to where it’s safe and pleasant, folks, we miss you.
