ON THE BACK BURNER

Dec.9

I did something so cool tonight. I stood at the Western Wall , in Jerusalem, and watched the Chanukah Menorah being lite . Historically, this should blow your mind. This is the actual, very same wall that protected the Second Temple over 2000 years ago. The very place that the Chanukah battle took place, and the miracle of the oil lasting for eight days. And I was standing there , in 2015. The security was tight. There was more than just a police presence. The police were there in force. Also, the newbie IDF kids were there for a ceremony, so there was plenty of security. I have not felt any anxiety about the stabbing infitida, as it is called here. I just don't go into the wrong neighborhoods. I wouldn't do that in New York or Chicago either.
