We are in middle of a snowstorm in Israel. The country isn't equipped for snow, as we only get one a year, at best. It is -1 degrees Celsius outside and is supposed to keep snowing through Shabbat. Many areas have lost electricity. We have had our electricity flicker a few times. 

For a baby like Tehilla, whose heart functionality is limited, this poses a problem. If we lose heat, her heart will have a difficult time circulating blood and maintaining warmth. 

We have bought a lot of 48 hour candles and plan on using them in ceramic pans to heat a room. As well, we will keep our gas stove on with baking sheets over and pots of water. Need be, I will keep her on my body wrapped in sweatshirts and blankets. If that doesn't do the trick, we will have to leave the neighborhood and hang out at the hospital.  G-d willing, all of it will be unnecessary and everyone will get their electricity back on. 


  1. Keeping you all in prayers.
    All will be well with Hashem's protection. Amen

  2. Tehilla is getting so big and beautiful! Keeping you all in my prayers. Thank you for sharing her journey with us all. Hashem's blessings! :-)
