Yom Kippur passed quietly again. Our daughter and son drove their bi- and tricycles in our street, together with tens of other kids. We went to synagogue yesterday evening for the Kol Nidrei ( the hazzan could hardly be heard, our neighborhood's synagogue's acoustics are terrible; I prefer the Ashkenazi versions anyway, but the Ashkenazi synagogues are too far away, unless you could take the car of course ) and tonight for the children to hear the shofar. I wonder if the fact that those pious Jews who threw stones at vehicles coming by ( sometimes bringing people to work or to a hospital - or both, if the driver happens to work at a hospital ) probably fasted was enough for them to get a positive qualification in this year's Book of Life, or will they have to wait another year, so that they can try again at next year's Yom Kippur? 19:19 Arab infant lightly hurt after vandals stone car en route to J`lem hospital (Haaretz) 19:17 Jews stone car transporting nurses to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in J`lem (Haaretz) 19:03 Police detain six Jews for allegedly stoning automobiles on Yom Kippur (Haaretz)
