Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to gather we go…

  • Rockets and mortars from Gaza have been raining down on southern Israel since Tuesday night.  The IDF has already responded with a counter-strike.  This comes after Netanyahu told Tony Blair on Monday that Israel will continue to attack groups that fire on her citizens, referring to an attack on a routine IDF patrol.
  • Activist Anat Hoffman was arrested at the Kotel while leading a women’s prayer service.  It is illegal for women to pray at the Wall while wearing a tallit or tefillin, and for women to read from the Torah at the Wall.  Hoffman’s organization, Women of the Wall, organizes a women’s service once a month for Rosh Chodesh at the Kotel.
  • A new study reports that 97% of US and Canadian college campuses report no anti-Israel or anti-Semitic events…Yay!
