The Warm Heart in All

My snapshot would be a crowded Meah Shearim street, with a traffic jammed road, and an Egged bus with it's doors opened, and the bus driver giving money to a collector on the street. This is what Our People in Our Land are about. How Mashiach should come VERY soon in mour days. Amen and may there be achdus in a reuited Eretz Yisrael.

Bet HaMikdash

I got this picture in an e-mail this week of a small child's arm on her great-grandmother's arm that bore the number from a Concentration Camp with an Israeli flag above it. At the time I thought this picture is worth a thousand words.
