Gaza Updates

Erev Shabbath Qodesh Parshath Wayigash 5769

Live-blogging of the war can be found by Jameel at The Muqata and by Aussie Dave at Israelly Cool.

Meanwhile, Jack at Random Thoughts has been compiling posts on the war, and posting periodic round-ups, so that you don't have to going searching around for the stories behind the story. Just check out Jack's place.

For on the spot reporting of the war from S'deroth, I recommend No'am Bedein and crew at the S'deroth Media Center. You can't get much more "first-hand" than that. Check out SMC's YouTube page as well.

My buddy Danny also lives down south, and I'm getting a little nervous that I haven't heard from him in a while. So, please check out The Jewish Fist for updates on the war. Leave him a comment of encouragement.

Debbie Schlussel
also keeps us updated with reports from her cousins in Be'er Sheva. The Kindergarten hit by a rocket is at their kids' school.

Rafi at Life In Israel posted the IDF map of the rocket range from Azza moving outward. (Sorry, it's only in Hebrew.) It's looks like Beth Shemesh (light blue) is the next area to be in range. After that it's Ben-Gurion International Airport (green). Part of this map is posted in English by Ariel Zellman., a fellow blogger (of course!), and a Ph.D. student in political science at Northwestern University.

Also, check out the Occidental Israeli's commentary on the war.

Lastly, Gaza War Refugees Forums is a place to find some support, if you're within the current range of rocket fire, or to provide some support to those who need it.

Stay safe, everyone, and Shabbath Shalom.

I also have posts from Netivot and Nitzan. That's in addition to my own writing.

I am so dense, I just noticed you linked to me in this post! Thanks Ya'aqov.

Ariel,

You're not dense. Give yourself a break.
