Thank G'd it's been a wonderful start to the Jewish New Year.
Our youngest daughter got engaged, we have been blessed with a new grandson, we had a first Bar Mitzvah of the next generation..............and of course
Gilad Shalit came home.
Although we all prayed with all our hearts that he should come home safely to his family, I know that I never really believed that we'd see him alive again.
Thank G'd I was wrong.
We pray that we and all of our People should continue to hear only good news throughout the coming year.
