To Join "TillesTells", or for
more about the group,
"The Eight Ivys and the Seven Sisters"
"I hear these miraculous stories about you. Can they all be true?
Do you know more medicine than the doctors? Do you know more law than
lawyers? What is this?"
Connection: You tell me!
LAST week's Story
"A Two-Way Surprise at the Tzfat Cemetery"
"Everyone was in great shock, As I ran up the hill with nearly fifty
people behind me, I saw that the ladies who were waiting couldn't stop
crying from joy over what was happening."
Connection: The 7th of Adar (this Friday) is a holiday for the Chevra
Kadisha (Jewish "Burial Societies") worldwide (some also
fast). It is the date of Moshe's passing. Who buried him? G-d Himself!
No need for the Chevra Kadisha. That's how it became their annual vacation
day, and the one date they need not worry about being weakened by fasting.
