Please Help Gilad Shalit

Hi Everyone!

Today (Thursday, June 25, 2009) Twitters around the world started a grassroots campaign to push the issue of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit's captivity to the top of the Internet world using the social networking mini-blog site.

Twitters will use the hashtag #Gilad to remind the world that Shalit's condition and whereabouts remain unknown after three years in the hands of the Hamas terrorists who kidnapped him. A hashtag is a label that Tweeters add to their messages to categorize them and make them more accessible and popular.

If you have a Twiiter account (free), please send out a Tweet today about #Gilad Shalit.

If you want examples of how easy it is to do, you can look at my own tweets today at:

You can see how others around the world are tweeting about Gilad by entering #Gilad in the Twitter search box.

“Whoever saves a single life is as if one saves the entire world.” - Talmud

Thank you!

Shabbat Shalom,

TAU Job Fair - June 3, 2009

Hi Everyone!

Tomorrow, June 3, 2009, Tel-Aviv University is having its 29th annual job fair. This is one of the largest annual job fairs in the country.

The job fair is for students and graduates but is also open to the general public (I just verified that on the phone). There are 90 companies registered for booths at the fair.

I would recommend bringing with you a teudat zehut card or other picture id card and getting there early. Bring plenty of copies of your updated resume.

The job fair will take place on the Tel-Aviv university campus.
Date: June 3, 2009
Time: 10:00 to 18:00

Additional details are available on the job fair website (in Hebrew) at:

Have a good day,
