ISRAEL INCREASES WATER SUPPLY TO WEST BANK.

Israel last Thursday dismissed Palestinian charges that it had cut the water supply to West Bank Palestinians, explaining that a broken water pipe had caused a temporary shortage. For the month of Ramadan Israel has increased the water flow to Palestinians at night, when the usage is particularly high after the fast. Separately, it also increased the flow of water in the Hebron and Bethlehem area by 5,000 cubic meters per hour, COGAT said.

AFTERMATH OF LAST WEEK’S TEL AVIV TERRORIST ATTACK

Israeli security forces on Thursday seized machinery used to make home-made guns in two Arab towns in the West Bank near Jerusalem. The shootings in Tel Aviv were carried out with two homemade guns, created out of water pipes, loosely based on the Swedish Carl Gustav submachine gun. Israeli forces also discovered bullets and components of explosive devices at the two sites. http://www.timesofisrael.com/idf-seizes-gun-making-machinery-ammo-in-west-bank-sweeps/ Read more

Flowers for Shavuot

by Hazel Green

Every year, our two talented amateur florists, Elise Wolfson and Sharon Sulkin, create magnificent floral displays for Shavuot.

This year’s theme – Ezekiel’s Vision – is dramatically described in the Haftorah we read on first day Shavuot. The stunning arrangements portrayed the colours described in the Haftorah: amber, blue sapphire, bronze and flame, while their shapes included references to the storm, the wings and the four wheels. At the conclusion of the service, Elise gave a fascinating drosha explaining the Haftorah inspiration behind the floral displays.

Yomtov celebrations continued with a fantastic four-course lunch for 50 people catered by members of the Ladies’ Guild: butternut squash soup, fish goujons, smoked salmon, tuna and salads, a cheese course and ending with a delicious creamy trifle.
