One of the great joys of going up to Jerusalem for the feasts is to gather on the weekly Shabbats at Independence Park. Some time back, it sort of became an unwritten date on every ephramite’s calendar: 2pm at Independence Park. Everybody will be there in a huge group talking excitedly, meeting new friends, making contacts and trading stories!

August 21st 2017 just a couple months after that thought on the beach, we had an amazing eclipse sweep across the United States from the West Coast to the East Coast. I noticed some very interesting signs which were pointing to Jerusalem when the eclipse shadow
had passed over 7 Salem’s.
