29 Nisan 5774
Day 14 of the Omer
Here in Israel, we are now in the closing minutes of the final hour of US Secretary of State John Kerry's nine-month time-frame for concluding the "peace process." Although I suppose they'll probably run the clock on out til midnight when their date changes over.
For me though, it's Erev Rosh Chodesh Iyar Alef - another day on the Hebrew calendar full of the possibility and expectation of the ultimate redemption.
