Green, Green, Green

7 Adar 5776 Yerushalayim Chanoch Ne’eman

Arrived back in Israel a week ago today. When our plane (the El Al Tel Aviv-Yafo) was circling into the airport, I looked out the window and was thinking, “This place looks like New Zealand.” The gentleman sitting next to me, by the window, who has led some seventy tours to Israel, thought we must have taken a different approach to the airport than normal. But it wasn’t. It was just that the normally brown hills were all green. From all the rain this winter. Here in Jerusalem too. For example, the hills below Har Zion; all green.

Even at the Kotel this shabbos morning I saw green weeds growing out from the stones in places where there normally aren’t any.
