Hol HaMo'ed Sukkoth - 2nd Day 5769
While tremping to work on Sunday, I received a strange phone call. A lady calling from a hidden number, and speaking in Hebrew very quickly, said something about having an "emergency." I think she said she needing a teacher to cover a class. I caught the word mekhinah (preparation), as in pre-freshmen year college preparatory program.
I said I had to work at the time she needed me, and good luck finding someone.
My resume is floating around the English teachers' network in Israel, but still, I found it kind of odd, and thought that it could have been a ploy to get me to come in for another meeting with the Shabba"k (General Security Service - Israeli Secret Police).
Am I too suspicious? Has the Shabba"k won, because they have must us feeling like we're constantly being watched, even though we're not, and can't trust anyone, even though we really can?
That's pretty much the attitude in several circles in Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria).
Who knows. I'm just taking it one day at a time.
