Days of Smiles, Days of Tears
We know that Adar is a month of great joy. But there is one day, the 7th of Adar, which falls this year on March 18, when we take a small break from joy. On this day, Moses was born; he died on this day exactly 120 years later, but his burial place is unknown. Some Jews fast on this day.
Linking Jewish present to past, Israel has instituted a public memorial ceremony on this day for soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces who have not yet been brought to burial (the unknown soldier). This annual memorial takes place at Mount Herzl Military Cemetery in Jerusalem.
March 8, was International Women's Day. Who are these famous Jewish women?
|1. She was born in Jerusalem in 1981 and moved to New York, but paid a visit to the planet Naboo.||2. She was born Oct. 29, 1971, with the last name of Horowitz.||3. She was born in Russia, moved to Wisconsin and then made the Holy Land her home.|
Purim is just around the corner!
Send Purim baskets this Sunday, March 20, at 2pm, at the Zimmer Museum.
