[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.
Micha Berger I have great faith in optimism as a philosophy,
micha at aishdas.org if only because it offers us the opportunity of
