- You must know the route to where you're going and where it is.
Now, I do know where Tzomet Yarkon is, because you make a right to get to my cousin's, if you're coming from Ariel. You need to go straight or to the left to get to all those other places.
But since I was off to do a mitzvah, a holy commandment, I was confident that somehow it would all safely work out. And of course, being that I was counting on miracles, yes tremps/rides, I had now idea how much time to give myself. I just had to forge ahead...
My trek started well when a neighbor picked me up. She was on her way to Ashkelon via Ariel and then the Number Six Highway. The question was where to let me off. Two teens were also in the car going to Tel Aviv. They were told to help me out, and we got off at the machsom, border check just before Elkana. They quickly caught a ride and I was on my own. After a bit of a wait, a young woman joined me and she was also on her way to Tzomet Geha. I announced to her that she had arrived to help me and would share n the mitzvah of nichum aveilim, comforting the mourners. She accepted the responsibility the the patience of a long-time trempisitit.
Baruch Hashem, thank G-d, I arrived safe and sound and only seconds after the time we had set to meet.
And yes, I guess there are exceptions to my rule.
