The flag of Israel was designed by a man called David Wolffsohn.

He chose two elements for the flag.
The first was the colours of blue and white, to represent the tallit (Jewish prayer shawl)
and the second was the Magen David (Star of David) which had been used as a Jewish symbol for a long time.

Hi Everyone!

Hi Everyone!
Thanks for the concern, and I'm sorry to have worried everyone.

Most of the time I was in the US I didn't have access to a computer, and from just a few hours after I arrived home a week and a half ago I have been running non-stop:
work, family, semester exams, parent-teacher night, 2 major Israeli holidays, church, and a friend who is dying of cancer (just diagnosed a week ago with bone, colon and lung cancer - probably won't make it through the month-fell and broke his shoulder yesterday - spent several hours at the hospital with him today after church - just got home at 11:30 pm).

And I still have jet lag!

It will be at least another two weeks until I can write, but in the meantime I'm okay.
My next cystascope exam is May 31 and I will know more then.

Thanks for your love and concern!
