10th of Av - Friday in Israel

I'm grilling chicken and blogging at the same time. Hope I don't get anything on the keyboard...

OK people...I'm done with the chicken and done with blogging today - must get ready for shabbat. Shabbat Shalom - a quiet a peaceful shabbat to all (except Nasralla, who I hope gets bombed to hell). Next round up - Motzei Shabbat...

I hate to post something this frivous, but re: grilling and blogging...

it's probably better to get food on your PC than your PC on the grill.

btw, frivous = frivolous

I didn't realize it's the !0th of Av today... :> but the way this "Non-war" is going it might be.. Shabbat Shalom,

P.S - your grilling and you didn't invite me??

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

OY: Sorry about that...its just we have too much company this shabbat to have invited you as well to the grill.


Mike; And its a new laptop as well! (Nothing beats WiFi while grilling :)

Shanah said...

Shabbat Shalom, Jameel! And every day is a good day for Israel-- some are tougher than others-- but as long as we can still call it Israel, it's a good day.

And there will NEVER be a day when we can't call it Israel again.

Grilled Chicken sounds good. I'll bring the wine. See you in about 17 hours or so. ;)

We all grill on friday in Muqataville. You guys should drop by and bring some steaks.

Hey, I'm grilling the bird tomorrow. What's your technique, other than to keep the PC off the grill?

I stayed on Kibbutz Nir Am when I did Volunteers for Israel. Thankfully the only thing close to danger we had were a few scorpians in our bathroom.

It's just breaks my heart to hear all this bad news.

I want to hug the guys who did the Nasrallah song (tzniusly, of course) - I've played it about a thousand times (yes, even during the 3 weeks. I don't consider it frivolous!).

We'd be grilling, too, but we're having vegetarians over for dinner. *snif*

I have to wonder if that chicken is for the shabbat table.

I never barbecue on erev shabbat--and I'm from Texas, original issue, Sephardi from the Spanish expulsion. I can't seem to satisfactorily orchestrate this: barbecue, shower, change for service, kabbalos shabbos, brachot, kiddush, challot and still have the main course hot, juicy and smoky like it's supposed to be. Shabbat shalom.

Alright now, as we get ready to come to Israel for 5-6 weeks (along with trying to learn Hebrew so we can converse at least semi-fluently, too), what's this about scorpians in the bathroom? That wasn't on the list of things we need to consider before heading over to Israel for extended volunteer cycles! ;-)

Someone explain to me how two Gentiles without a drop of Hebrew blood flowing through our collective veins can have hearts which always turn towards Israel and her people! I cannot explain it myself, but Israel and her wonderful people captured our hearts long ago!

We look forward to spending a lot of time volunteering in Israel. I was to come shortly and my hubby will not stop me from coming because of the war, but he only added a stipulation to it: that I must wait until he can free himself from work because he doesn't want me going off in the midst of everything right now without him. So they will reschedule us to come together just a bit later for at least a month as volunteers.

We will plan to travel over a little before our volunteer time schedule and to stay a little after. We will not be afraid to support Israel's tourism industry on our "off" times weekly as well.

I am a little disappointed that my departure will be delayed slightly, but I am pleased my husband is not insisting we wait to come until it quiets down (I am beginning to wonder if it ever will, actually), only that I not go without him coming along, too. He says he never considered keeping me from coming to volunteer now, only that he feels he must come with me, too.

I cannot wait until we come to do whatever we can to help - we will be pleased to do whatever we can wherever we are placed. We have not much monetary resources, but we can give of our time and we will.

In the meanwhile, we will continue to work on our Hebrew lessons and keep Israel and all her people near and especially to pray for the safety of the brave men and women of the IDF. Our hearts ache for those in the north who are being deluged daily with the rockets - particularly the very elderly and frail.

G-d be with you all!
