From the Four Corners of the Earth!

For those of you who have been asking me why I don't blog as much as I used to the truth is I do. But I've been blogging on my new blog Point of Pinchas. In any case every once in a while I still find something to share with Kumah as well. Here's is blog about a fascinating story that was all over the news last week.

1948 Jewish population: Approximately 150,000
Today: Approximately 11

1978: Jewish population: Approximately 40,000
Today: 1

United States of America
1998 Jewish population: Approximately 5,800,000
Soon: ?

1998 Jewish Population: Approximately 4,847,000
Soon: Everybody, including you!

Yes, yes, it's already been all over the blogsphere.

There were two Jews left in Afghanistan and shul politics - but of course - came between them. One has just died.

But no one seems to have mentioned this angle. What it means is that the ingathering of the exiles is complete from Afghanistan. (This last Jew's wife and family are already living in Israel and they want him Home!) Two years ago there were reports that there were just 11 Jews left in Iraq - also known as Bavel, which 1500 years ago looked like 13th Avenue and Avenue J in terms of the sheer number of Jews living there! The clock has been ticking for some time already. How much longer will there still be more Jews in the Diaspora than in our homeland? Not very much longer I dare say...

Why Dance? We Know Our Gush Katif Trees Will Not Be Uprooted

(AP Photo)

The A7 Tu B'Shvat tree planting in Gush Katif was awesome. Jewish Gaza is alive, kicking, and inspiring our people to move forward with the Jewish Project.

My wife and I brought our 3-year-old avocado sapling that we raised in our Jerusalem windowsill since it was a seed and planted it firmly in the outlying neighborhood of Tiferet Yisrael - near N'vei Dekalim.

I invite every Jew to come visit us yearly when we spend Tu B'Shvat in the serene shade of this Avocado tree, in Gush Katif. Maybe we will even share some guacamole with you (bring your own nachos).

Tu B'Shvat Sameach!

Oh, one more thing. has been nominated for several blog-awards. Polls are open until Sunday (click here to vote).

Update: More pictures

Simply put if you're thinking about Aliyah or if you've already made it, is the place to network with others, find friends, view and post to an events calendar, and there's even an awesome dating section. There's something for everyone.
