Shabbat Shalom June 1, 2012

Dear Friends and Family,

As you are reading this week’s message, we were SUPPOSE to be in St. Petersburg, Russia. But “man plans and G-d (and the Russians) laugh”.  My Russian visa was sabotaged so St. Petersburg (for us) was not meant to be.  We will meet the Technion group (including my mom and Don) on the 2nd half of the trip in Israel.  I was concerned about computer access and free time on this trip so with the magic of technology, this message was written prior to our departure, in the Newark airport and scheduled for delivery (to you) Friday morning at 6:00am (Detroit Time).

I saw this article before we left and wanted to update you. Five years after the Cycling for Peace group emerged with Gilad Shalit as their symbolic guiding light, they, for the first time last month, commenced the bike trip with Gilad actually leading 500 cyclist including 150 Arab Israelis.  This was the first time since his October release that he has made a public appearance. He was greeted with love, respect and support. Here is the article:http://israel21c.org/social-action-2/gilad-shalit-joins-arab-and-jewish-cyclists-for-peace/?utm_source=Newsletter+5%2F23%2F2012&utm_campaign=May+23+2012+&utm_medium=email

Did you see this wonderful and creative youtube of Isaac’s proposal from last week. Apparently, it has logged over a million hits already. It is sweet and fun to watch:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5_v7QrIW0zY#!

Remember to give thanks…

 Cats are SO dramatic!

Wishing you and your loved ones a Sweet and Peaceful Shabbat Shalom,

Lisa
