Only in Israel, On the Road

The yishuv email list has a lot of interesting things on it. In addition to community news, requests for rides and favors (anyone have children’s tylenol to lend us? can we borrow someone’s mei-cham for Shabbat?) there are intersting announcements.

One of these struck me as the perfect “only in Israel” moment – this time on the road. It seems that someone is organizing spontaneous mincha minyanim (the afternoon prayer which needs a quorum of men) on Route 6. At every rest stop there will be a minyan 15 minutes before sundown, for those who have not prayed yet. They want to spread the word far and wide so that these minyanim take hold.

So the next time you are traveling late afternoon on Israel’s only toll road, stop for gas and a cup of coffee, and add a daily prayer too.

    You are so right. Only in Israel. G-d willing it will increase the kedusha and decrease the negative along the way.

    “meicham”? Hot-water urn?

    A roadside minyan–I love it!
