Zocheir Habrit

As some of you know, we spent this past Shabbat in the beautiful northern Shomron.

Special thanks to our gracious hosts – longtime Our Shiputzim readers - for their incredible hospitality! We really had a great time!

On the way there, we ran into some wonderfully wet winter weather (try saying that five times fast…) and even had the privilege of reciting the brachah (blessing) on seeing a rainbow.

As always, feel free to click on the pictures for a closer view:

Blessed are You, Hashem, our God, King of the universe, Who remembers the covenant and is faithful to His covenant and fulfills His word.


  1. Lovely! Glad the weather lent itself to rainbows.

  2. Leora - Yes, B"H, we've had quite a bit of rain these past few days. (However, the Kinneret is still too low and we need to keep davening for more rain.)

  3. Gorgeous! I'm on a constant lookout for rainbows, but have yet to find any. Great to see yours, though - thanks for sharing it!

  4. Toby - Thanks. As we were driving, the weather kept alternating between heavy downpours and brief glimpses of the sun - i.e. ideal rainbow conditions.
