False charges from Palestinians that Israel had opened southern dams, flooding Gaza, appeared in a number of media outlets including AFP, Al-Jazeera, RT, Maan and Xinhua. The story was proven to be an outright lie by virtue of the fact that there are no dams in Israel’s south. http://honestreporting.com/dam-busted-pt-2-more-dam-lies/
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and his security guard helped subdue a Palestinian terrorist who stabbed a Jewish man in the city. Security footage of the event shows Barkat lunging at the terrorist. The Mayor served as an officer in the paratroopers. http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4629577,00.html
Kingston Synagogue Hosts a “Mirv”-ellous Melave Malka
by Hazel Green
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis paid his first visit to Kingston, Surbiton & District Synagogue, the largest United Synagogue shul in South West London, on Motze Shabbat.
Over 100 synagogue members and guests were welcomed by Kingston’s Rabbi Samuel Landau with a Havdalah ceremony, and drosha including traditional Chasidic stories, before enjoying a three-course dinner organized by the Ladies Guild.
The Chief Rabbi congratulated the shul, saying that they were blessed to have the incredible leadership duo of Rabbi Samuel and Rebbetzen Shoshana Landau, and he enthused about the varied synagogue activities ranging from an impressive Holocaust Memorial Day programme for local schools to interfaith work and myriad of social events.
