More Reasons to Live in Eretz Yisrael

Yom revi'i, 7 Cheshvan 5769.
(To my Israeli readers:  Don't forget to add "tal u'matar" today!)





Many of our holy sites, accessible and surrounded by great beauty...

Kedusha, out in the open, seemingly everywhere...

A vending machine in Jerusalem's Central Bus Station for a little "light learning" on the trip...





It's okay to say Tehillim on the bus.






 
Throughout the year, preparations for our holy days are evident everywhere...

Where else does the head come with the gefilte fish for the Rosh Hashanah simanim, for example?

In a country that puts family first, it's not unusual for the kids to help out in the store at a surprisingly young age.
  
Where else do we Jews have our own army?
There are holy Jews all over this Land...

 
And Hashem Himself seems to come down to do the gardening.

Hashem made a beautiful world.  But I can't imagine a better place fully to live as a Jew than this amazing Land He gave to us.  May He grant that we should be permitted to weather the political storms, and to keep this precious inheritance.  And may He bring all of our dear, holy sisters and brothers Home soon!
