T'hilim in Shiloh

Today, Ta'anit Ester, the Fast of Ester, a T'hilim campaign was established. Women all over the world were asked to gather together at 10:30 their time, to say t'hilim for Gush Katif and Eretz Yisrael. We, in Shiloh, participated.

There was a very moving T'hilim "saying" in Shiloh this morning at 10:30am. We were a group of grandmothers, mothers, toddlers and infants in the Beit Medrash L'Noar established in memory of Avi Siton, HaY"D and Shmuel Yerushalmi, HaY"D. First we shared two sets of T'hilim booklets and read them. Then in the "after bracha" we added names for "refuah shleimah" including a little girl who was very seriously injured in a car accident here on the yishuv this week, Sima bat Rita Golda Raizel. Following that, the special "Gush Katif Prayers" were said. Afterwards we had a discussion led by Piki Apter.

In many ways this year feels more like Yom HaKippurim than Taanit Esther.
