Rain, Rain Don’t Go AwayBy Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
...“Large quantities of rain fell on Monday along the coast even as far south as Be’er Sheva,” veteran weather forecaster Uri Batz told Arutz Sheva.
...“Six straight says of rain is rare in our climate. We are on the right path and there is more to come. I think the rainfall this winter will be at least average.”
...A week and a half ago, Jews in Israel began inserting into daily prayers the request that HaShem will “give us dew and rain for a blessing.”
...“He makes the wind blow and the rain fall” is recited from Simchat Torah, which follows the holiday of Sukkot, until the last day of Passover.
This is a clear sign that our tefillah and teshuva was accepted on Yom Kippur. May the blessings extend to bringing Mashiach Tzidkeinu quickly.
