64th birthday and 38 years Aliyah anniversary

 Hi Everyone!

Today, August 29, is my English birthday.

My Hebrew birthday is the 13th of Elul.

I created a page to mark the occasion:

The page includes a link to a sermon about my parsha "Ki Tetze"

It also includes 9 videos of the Beatles song: When I'm 64

Something for everyone!

Tomorrow, August 30, is my 38th Aliyahversary.

On August 30, 1984, I made aliyah from Brooklyn to Israel.

It was the best decision of my life. I highly recommend it!

You can view my aliyah anniversary video at:

This year, I added to the page a humorous and meaningful video, 

by Rabbi Dovid Orlofsky, about moving to Israel.

Worth watching!

May the aliyah from all over the world grow and

bring more Jews back to their homeland, Eretz Yisrael.

Drink water and keep cool!

Have a great day,

 Hi Everyone!

Today, I went to see the drone racing in the Ma'ale Adumim stadium.

I was very surprised how fast these drones can fly.

Besides watching the drones being controlled by the

participants, we were able to see the onboard camera view 

of specific drones on a big screen.

These teenagers have a big future ahead of them.

The youngest among them is 11 years old. 

He started flying drones when he was 9 years old.

I posted photos and a video of the event at:

Enjoy the photos and video.

Please share. Thank you!

Happy Tu B'Av!

Shabbat Shalom!
