It started to rain in Israel.......

Hi Everyone!

On Shmini Atzeret we pray for a winter filled with blessed rain.
Within 48 started to rain in Israel.

To read the phrase and hear a native Israeli say it in Hebrew visit:

The season is changing and the weather is changing too.
Prepare yourself for the change with the weather vocabulary study sheets at:

For your amusement, here is the rain scene from one of my favorite movies: The Frisco Kid

Chief Gray Cloud: [in reference to Avram's God]
What does he do?

Avram: He... He can do anything!

Chief Gray Cloud: Then why can't he make rain?

Avram: Because he doesn't make rain. He gives us strength
when we're suffering. He gives us compassion when all that
we feel is hatred. He gives us courage when we're searching
around blindly like little mice in the darkness...
but He does not make rain!

[Thunder and lightning begin, followed by a downpour]

Avram: Of course... sometimes, just like that, he'll change His mind.

Here is the 1 minute Frisco Kid rain scene video:
