Finally, in mid-January, the rain started to pour over the land of Israel. The rain is blessed, no doubt, but it caught us unprepared. After two straight stormy days, the streets were flooded to the point that some people took out their canoes and started sailing. Most of us, however, stayed at home with a hot coco; after all, we are not used to a cold weather of any sort. A few talented photographers dared to step outside and take beautiful photos of the storm-struck Israel…

It was unseasonably cold on the eve of the New Year. The lakes were frozen; the sun retreated from the heavens on erev Rosh Hashanah. A group of porcupines noted for their rugged individualism were caught shivering in wintry storms. They decided to huddle together and thereby find...
September 9, 1999 | 8:00 pmThe only thing Jerusalem's Jewish and Arab shopping malls had in common when news broke last Friday of the Wye II deal was that no one was dancing in the streets.
