[Avodah] 17 Marcheshvan

Yesterday, the 17th Marcheshvan, was the anniversary of two events:

1- The rain of the mabul began; and
2- 2 Nov 1917, the day the British Foreign Secretary, Lord Alfred
   Balfour, sent the famous letter to Baron Lionel Walter

Anyone want to connect the dots between the two?

Two things I did notice:

- Both were first steps, far from the final yeshu'ah.

- Both were first followed by major destruction before anything positive
  could be seen from them.

Tir'u baTov!
