"Al Chet Shechatati Lefanecha*..."
I spoke to my younger (married) son yesterday and wished him and his lovely wife a gmar hatimah tovah; my middle daughter (normally in Israel) is here for Yom Kippur and Sukkot, thank G-d; my youngest daughter (the one in serving in Tzahal in Handassa Kravit-see my post from 19 July entitled "My Baby's Unit) called me after midnight my time (!) while she was on the bus going home to G---- for the Chag, so I was able to wish her a Gmar Tov, and my older son called this morning, just before the Chag came in, where he was staying in A---- , so I succeeded in talking to him as well.
Now, all we need to do is pray to G-d for a true peace in Israel, and for the well-being of the Jews, and all the peoples of the world. With an insane government and a police-like State in Israel (read what happened to Nadia Matar at the demonstration in Jerusalem on Wednesday), surrounded by enemies - especially lately Syria and Iran who unabashedly vow to destroy us - we really need Hashem's help.
I am (-doing my E-pentance by) hereby asking for forgiveness from all my real and virtual friends and readers, if I hurt you or offended you in any way. Please forgive me.
May we all be written in the Book of Life for a good year, Amen, ken yehi ratzon.
