Rockets force school closings in Beersheva, Ashdod

The number of rockets fired at southern Israel now stands at more than 130, forcing cities in the region to take drastic measures:

The southern Israeli cities of Ashdod and Beersheba fell under a barrage of rockets Saturday evening as the second day of violence between Israel and the Gaza Strip – the worst in a year – continued.

Alarms and explosions were heard in Ashdod and Beersheba early Saturday evening, resulting in a decision by both cities’ municipalities to keep schools closed on Sunday. As of Saturday night, schools were to remain closed in Beersheba, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Netivot, Kiryat Gat, Ofakim, Beer Tuvia, Yavne and Gedera.

Meanwhile, Israel continues to fight back. Again, keep your eye on the IDF’s blog for real-time updates from the front.

Rabbi’s Commentary
Answering His Call, Faithfully and Joyfully

2014 has certainly been a year of struggles. But those challenges have been answered by God, and by His faithful followers. The Fellowship and our generous friends have been able to offer assistance to those who need it most, from the Holy Land to the former Soviet Union, and we look hopefully to the coming year as one of peace, prosperity, and repairing the world.
