The father of one of the victims of the Monday night Shomron drive-by terrorist shooting attack asks the tzibur to be mispallel for his son “with a full heart”. The victims in the attack are all residents of Kochav HaShachar, a yishuv in the Binyamin Regional Council district of Shomron. They were returning home from a basketball game in the sports center in Yishuv Eli when gunfire rang out from a passing vehicle on the Alon Road, near Shvut Rachel.
Four victims were treated by EMS on the scene and transported to Shaare Zedek Medical Center and Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, both in the capital. The two victims in Hadassah are in moderate condition. One of the victims in Shaare Zedek is in moderate condition and the second critical.
Critically injured is Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld, who lost his older brother, an air force pilot, during a hike in Nachal Tzeilim in 2002.

From Shirat Devorah, a letter from Aryeh Feingold of London:
An open letter and Request to all of my non Jewish Friends and Jewish friends outside of the UK.
July 4th, whilst essentially an American holiday, has long been associated with Independence, Freedom, celebrated in the USA by all regardless of religion, class, creed or race. However, 4th July 2015, here, in London, and indeed more specifically my neighborhood, just a 10 minute walk from my front door. We will play host to probably the most deeply distressing event in recent times to specifically target Jews living in the UK, and yes that includes me. As most of you know, I never play the minority card and rarely do talk about my specific religious beliefs, they are after all my own, and I respect everybody else’s choices. I’m truly humbled by how accommodating many of you have been when it has come to my odd dietary requirements or missed social events due to clashes with Jewish holidays. However, to say I’m troubled by what’s coming, is a huge understatement.
A far right group is planning a rally in the heartland of the London Jewish community against what it calls "Jewification of Britain", they will march through my neighborhood, and intend to burn copies of the Talmud (Jewish holy book) because of its anti-white teaching, ironic as Ashkenazi Jews like myself are white. Believe it or not despite 1000s of requests the Home Office and Metropolitan Police can do nothing to stop the 4 July protest from happening. The rally is not about free speech but a deliberate attempt to provoke tension and anti-Semitism. Indeed, July 4th is a Saturday, and it’s been specifically chosen as Saturday is the Jewish day of rest, when most Jews will be walking to synagogues in the very same area.
I kid you not this is the agenda for the rally in two weeks’ time:
1) The illegality of the Shomrim Police
2) What is Jewification?
3) International Jewry, the devils own hand
4) Why the holocaust didn’t happen
5) George Galloways 30 minute slot on Israel
6) A recorded audio speech by Joshua Bonehill
You can see the link on their website, outlining their intentions, and attached are couple of flyers for the event, to give you an idea of the seriousness of the situation.
This is not some random Facebook post or chain email, it’s a personal message from me. Can I please urge you to share the email / post with your friends and family to raise awareness of the dark situation that is developing on my doorstep. This isn’t Berlin 1938, its London 2015!! I end by quoting JFK, who was actually quoting Edmund Burke: for evil men to accomplish their purpose it is only necessary that good men should do nothing.
Love Aryeh Feingold

Tefilos are requested for the wounded border policeman in Eretz Yisroel, Roz ben Carmela, who was seriously wounded in a stabbing attack at Shar Shechem earlier Sunday, 4 Tammuz. He sustained stab wounds to his neck, chest and heart. He fired at the attacker before collapsing into cardiac arrest. The terrorist, a resident of the PA (Palestinian Authority), remains in serious condition.
For five generations of the Talmudic era, the great Sages of the Land of Israel flourished in the Galil. There, like the Sages of Babylonia, they debated, expounded, and applied the laws and principles of the Mishnah that were received at Sinai .The sacred learning of those years was gathered in the Talmud Yerushalmi ù The Jerusalem Tamud.
They lived with Roman pogroms and persecution ù but the flame of Torah burned bright despite it all. Until about 350 C. E., when brutal Roman anti-Semitism decimated the Holy LandÆs yeshivos and silenced its voice of Torah. But the SagesÆ teachings live on in the Talmud Yerushalmi, just as the teachings of Babylonia live one in the Talmud Bavli ù The Babylonian Talmud.
But while the Sages of Babylonia had another 150 years to redact, clarify and organize the text of the Babylonian Talmud, Roman persecution in the Holy Land made that impossible. Thus, the Jerusalem Talmud is exceedingly difficult, and ù despite its great significance û it has been a closed book to all but select, elite scholars.
Now, thanks to the outstanding scholars who produced the classic Schottenstein Edition of Talmud Bavli, the lock is being removed on yet another treasure-house of Torah ShebÆal Peh, the Oral Law.
This project has been enthusiastically welcomed and endorsed by Torah leaders in Israel and America.
