Miracle On The First Day of Summer

It NEVER rains at this time of year...

Israel’s summer start dampened by freak rainfall

As Israel kicks off its first official day of the summer in anticipation of its usually scorching hot temperatures, residents were surprised by a freak phenomenon on Wednesday morning as rain began to briefly fall on a number of central and southern cities including Tel Aviv, Holon, Petah Tikva, Kiryat Ono, Ashdod and Sderot.

Meteorologist Tzachi Waxman of Meteo Tech said that “Ironically, today is the first official day of the summer with light rains falling from the north to the outskirts of the Negev desert.”


  1. It was delicious! I was also wondering what earned us such a lovely blessing?...

    1. I was thinking perhaps a sign to us of more good things to come - to hold on tightly to HKB"H, the end of suffering is almost here. Hold on just a little bit longer. Everything is coming to its conclusion. Wonderful times are just ahead. Because this is the most dangerous period - the time when the desire to stop and rest or give up is strongest.

  2. Amen, Devash. May the good come speedily for all of Bnai Yisrael!

    Last year around this time, Rav Brody mentioned a prophecy of the days leading up to Moshiach, that the season would overlap, or invert or something. I cant find the quote.

  4. Gee, you didn’t post my comment? Something amiss?

  5. I posted all the comments I received.
