Shekel Nearly at 11-Year High Against Dollar

Filed under: Current Events — Reb Moshe @ 4:05 am

The reality of this Shekel strengthening at an 11-Year High Against Dollar means for us Americans living in Israel big trouble. In layman’s turns, our bills just jumped about $400-$700 this month after we transfer our money over to pay in Shekels. In Betar, Rabbi’s had to place a price limit as all the landlords raised every ones rent about $200 a month. Betar being the poorest community in Israel, people are already looking to pack up and move. Some how about you American’s get it together, bring some troops home from Iraq, stop putting pressure on Israel, get some real candidates for President and pick out Governors with some credibility. I don’t know, just get something right! Okay, that is all I got for current events.

May Hashem help confort all the boys and families of the Yeshiva of Rav Kook.
