What can you do in 15 seconds?

[Warning:  You may never look at pouring a glass of beer, brushing your teeth or going to the loo quite the same way again]

This film is already dated since it refers only to Sderot... but it is equally applicable to any of Israel's communities that are now within rocket range of our enemies.

As long as the rockets are only falling in Israel, the MSM isn't too concerned. It's when Israel fights back that the criticism begins:This is ridiculous. If there were no rockets raining on us the IDF wouldnt have anything to... [Read More]

It took longer than 15 seconds (after selecting English, and all the prompts to get a person) but I finally cancelled my NYTimes. I had come to expect the subtle Pro-terrorist "reporting" as a matter of course, but last weekend's travel section was really the last straw.They actually featured Saudi Arabia, that bastion of progress and equal rights, as a travel destination. Even putting aside the fact that if you have Israel in your passport they won't let you in, this is the country whose second biggest export to the US, after oil, is homicidal maniacs. Any suggestions as to what to replace it with?

Take a look at look at the wonderfully simple way in which teachers and therapists are reducing the fear of Sderot's children during those 15 seconds and their aftermath.

Our Rabbi just returned from Israel and inspired by the Yeshiva and residents of Sederot, he gave a Dvar Torah about their reality and the seconds between siren and strike.

In his words ...
"We called him 15 minutes before arriving and he told us that a rocket had literally just fallen. When we arrived he showed us a picture of how a rocket had fallen only ten feet away from him but had miraculously not exploded. He then showed us how many of the students in his yeshiva slept every night in a bomb shelter.

Here is the amazing thing. Imagine what he was doing in the face of these daily rockets? He was expanding. The more the rockets rained down, the quicker the Yeshiva was building and expanding. The Torah of the Yeshiva would provide the moral strength for the entire city of Sederot.

From the moment the “code red” siren sounds the people of Sederot have 16 seconds to get to shelter. I asked him if we could arrange something so that the “code red” also lights a signal in our synagogue so that during those 16 seconds we can recite special prayers for the people of Sederot."
