Hendel does Israel

While I may no longer technically be in Israel, I have no intention of stopping who I am or what I am about. We all know the timeless Chabad teaching of "Mach Doh Eretz Yisael" - its very empowering. I'll let you know about my journey, my struggles and my dreams. JaHbless.

the journey...


After having a rather sleepless night, we headed off to Brisbane, ate some chocolate cake, transfered to Hong Kong, and ate some more chocolate cake.

On our Hong Kong to Israel flight we met a Israel born-melbourne living Kabbalist, named Manny (Menachem) - who told us, amoung many other mystical and thought provocing things, that melbourne has the same gematria as choshech - go figure!

Apparently though, in the darkest places, the highest lights can & must be revealed...

The Friedeker Rebbe once said "... you don't fight darkeness with a stick, you simply reveal more light ..."

hendel, do israel...
i got some light to be aspreading down here in Choshechland. when the going gets tough, the tough eat chocolate cake, and we realise, like our predecessor Avraham, that even the worst choshech is still His Most Precious Possession.
KMJ aint gonna happen without ur jahblessed touch, so i'm leaving it to when u get back. in the meanwhile, Priestly Moses will inspire me to love those annoying things for whom i work so hard right now.
With blessings for only amazing tidings in the future,

So if I'm number #3. Who is No. #1 and No. #2??

U see, it's not about headrests, or melbournian scumnonians....nor is it about chocolate cake!!

It's all about a smile.

G-D smiles on Israel all day long....now how about that!?

Are you smiling back?......

Signed......

To all my beuatiful brothers and sisters who wrote to me, thanks so much. This blog is definately here to communicate instead of email. So spread the word, get it out there.

Jesus, keep the vibe - I'm smiling so much that my mouth is hurting, and i'm sending the blessings your way, right down from melbourne to jerusalem!

Ibrahimn Imanuel,
just as a side point, you can replace a member of the unlikely trio with someone else, but if they are not unlikely in every way, then you have just made mainsteam out of irregular, which is criminal.

i think i'm number #2. it just sits well. and subbajabbajewed is def #1, bc it couldn't happen without it. in fact, it ISNT happening without him!!! no replacements to be found. i have tried recruiting but it has been unsuccessful to the point where i think it won't ever be successful. moish, i really feel your soul over there. really!! (where is my post from mary mother of jesus?)

i have a question,

we talk about unlikely's in numbers i.e. unlikely#1 unlikely#2 & unlikely#3

but, are the numbers in order of age? hence me being #1 as the youngest, or in order of unlikelyhood, in which case who decides who is more unlikely than the other? please unlikely's, answer me.

What do you get when you cross, one unlikely with another unlikely......probably a likely!.

Hmm...last Thurs didn't happen. We're going to try it again this week!! I'm hang'n out for it, so unlikely #2, don't forget to SMS me this time, KAY!!

p.s. Unlikely #1 how is the Holy Land?

it goes in order of importance to the trio. #1 is vital. it can't happen without #1. now, the number 2 and 3... well, thats more complicated. it can't really happen without the man with the plan. or the chick with the kick.
