Chag Sameach!

Maale Levona will be hosting residents from Sderot and Netzarim.

* Chag HaGez is a sheep shearing festival celebrated in biblical times, traditionally done in the spring. A portion was then tithed to the Kohanim, as it is written in Dvarim, 18:4 " The first-fruits of your grain, of your wine, and of your oil, and the first of the fleece of your sheep, shall you give him (the Kohanim and Leviim)".

Maale Levona was the first place to resurrect this ancient celebration and a Kohain will be given a portion of the fleece.

Line of Sand

Tuesday morning I came downstairs to see dozens of large black ants moving their anthill from somewhere outside to somewhere inside. After spraying the ants with insecticide, I poured a line of talcum powder by my front door which stopped any more from coming in that way.

I love the 'committee meeting' going on in the right-hand side of the photo... It's like they're trying to decide what to do now...
