Three Israelis were killed and an 8 month old baby was critically injured in a Gaza rocket attack on the Israeli city of Kiryat Malachi. The rocket struck the top floor of a four story residential building. Ynet reports that a 4-year-old boy was moderately hurt as well “and was taken to the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon for treatment. A 1-year-old girl and another infant sustained light injuries and were taken to the Kaplan Medical Center. The girl’s father was lightly hurt as well. Ten people suffered panic attacks.”

Throughout the night Gaza rocket fire was aimed at a number of civilian areas in southern Israel’s cities and towns. Ynet reports:

“A rocket barrage targeted Ashdod, with one projectile hitting a home but failing to cause casualties. A school in Ofakim was also hit. Salvos targeted Beersheba, Ashkelon and Gan Yavne as well. Some of the rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system.”

Additionally rockets struck Beersheba, and the Eshkol Regional Council, as Israel targeted terror sites in Gaza overnight with the launch of operation Pillar of Defense by the IDF.

According to the IDF spokesperson Twitter account, 135 rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel in the last 11 hours alone.

    These are the predicted korbanut which Israel was forced to make to satisfy world opinion. And yet, by allowing these sacrifices to be made, Netanyahu is destroying the world. This is because it says if you save one jewish life it is life saving the entire world. Nobody ever said that the world “wants” to be saved, and as Prime ministers such as Begin and Shamir understood, nobody ever promised Israel a rose garden. The Gaza operation was started a day and three bodies late.

  • Shalom,

    We will always support Isra-El for many, many reasons. Take care of your old and young citizens. Take care of your republic and freedom. It’s being lost over here in America rapidly. We may one day have to flee. I hope you’ll take Christians or Jewish descent and Christians who are not of Jewish descent into Isra-El one day.

    America may soon not have your back. But God does. We know what will happen. He’s for you. He said if no one else will defend Isra-El, He swears by His Own Name that He will. And Isra-El, He will. His Name is Yeshua our Messiah.

    Israeli Soccer Team Faces Prospect of International Ban

    The Israel National soccer team could be facing a World Cup ban, and other soccer sanctions, unless it alleviates travel restrictions and increases field access for Palestinian players and coaches. The head of the Palestinian Football Association is pushing for international soccer’s governing body, the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), to issue a ban on Israel competing internationally, claiming Israel’s restrictive travel for Palestinians is equivalent to a form of oppression. “It’s not only the athletes,” Jibril Rajoub explains.

    Jewish Author of ‘Eat to Live’ Dishes on Health Care, Nutrition, Disease Prevention

    JNS.org – While the national debate on “Obamacare” rages on past the recent March 31 sign-up deadline, bestselling Jewish author Dr. Joel Fuhrman says the “current disease care model of what we call ‘health care’ cannot possibly be sustained.” “There is simply not enough money available to support a system in which the lion’s share of expenditures is devoted to acute care, with virtually nothing being spent on preventive medicine, i.e. health care,” Fuhrman says in an interview. “To make [...]

    ‘Tears of Color’ Art Exhibit Shows Struggles of Israelis With Eating Disorders

    JNS.org – “This is how I want to be—without fear. Independent. I want to be like a bird. I want to spread my wings.” So reads part of the description beneath one of the 30 paintings on display until the end of May at the ZOA House in Tel Aviv. The collection represents the first-ever art exhibit of its kind: an exhibit created entirely by Israelis in treatment for eating disorders. Dubbed “Tears of Color,” based on one of the [...]

    Overprotective or Loving? Daughters Reflect on Jewish Mothers in New Anthology

    JNS.org – Rachel Ament noticed that she and her friends often shared humorous anecdotes that were typically variations on a theme: overprotective, worrying Jewish moms who smothered them with love. That included Ament’s own mother. “My mom is probably every Jewish stereotype scrunched into one,” the Washington, DC, resident tells JNS.org. “At the root of all these stereotypical, worrying, overprotective moms, is love.” A social media writer for Capital One, as well as a freelance writer, Ament decided about three years [...]

    ‎Kosher Lust: Love is Not the Answer (REVIEW)

    Kosher Lust, by Shmuley Boteach (Gefen Publishing House, 2014). You really do want to find something positive to say about Shmuley Boteach. He is a phenomenon; very bright, an articulate bundle of energy and self-promotion. Anyone who has the chutzpah to describe himself as “America’s Rabbi” deserves ten out of ten for effort. I believe that along with most Chabad alumni, official and unofficial, he does a lot of good and is a sort of national treasure. In this world [...]

    JNS.org – In a throwback to the golden age of cinema, Hollywood has declared 2014 the “Year of the Bible.” From Ridley Scott’s Exodus starring Christian Bale as Moses, to Russell Crowe playing Noah, Hollywood is gambling on new innovations in technology and star power to revisit some of the most popular stories ever told. “It’s definitely a throwback to the 1950s and early ’60s,” Dr. Stephen J. Whitfield, an American Studies professor at Brandeis University, told JNS.org. Starting with The [...]
