27 Nisan 5778Twelve Days of the Omer
Mayor Yonah Yahav of Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, Thursday decided not to wait for an official alert, but to issue orders to the town’s residents to prepare for any fallout from a US military operation in Syria. The municipal authorities were instructed to open up public shelters and place emergency services on the ready. Yahav advised families to prepare shelters and fortified rooms for occupation and lay in supplies of essential items for the duration.I have been witness to very unusual military activity in my area today. Nothing about this strikes me as the usual. On the contrary, it feels very different this time. We are getting very close to the month of messianic wars and military miracles.
