Where Is The Rain?

For those of you who do not know, it usually doesn't rain in Israel during the summer. We are totally dependent on the rain that falls in the winter for the water that use. If rain does not fall during the winter, we are in trouble!

This winter has been very dry so far. Ironically rain did fall during the holiday of Sukkot, which is not considered a good sign. It is compared to a servant bring a drink to his master, only to have the master spill it on the servant's face!

This morning the shaliach tzibur in the minyan that I davenned at added a special prayer for rain in the "shma koleinu" blessing. May we soon be blessed with rain.

I will remember to pray also. Maybe we can send to you some rain from Seattle. We've got it in abundance.

yeah, here in texas we don't get much rain either... the weather is very similar to israel.

none-the-less, we just got rain 10-minutes ago which is quite a blessing...

i davened for rain for eretz yisrael as well, but i think it was misdirected to texas instead.

i shall try again.

My neighbor was commenting that perhaps the reason there is no rain is due to the fact that there are still many of those expelled from GK without a roof over their head, or that are properly prepared for a cold, wet winter....

I didn't know there was no summer rains there. I will pray too.

Mountain Momma,

I already pinned your map (although the image there is of a woman, which I am not).
