More rain today for the third time this week! and the Negev desert is wearing green!
Last night I tried to sleep through a thunderstorm overhead, while Israeli families not so far to the west were trying to sleep in or near their fortified room as Gaza fired rockets (over 70 in the last two days).
In yesterday's post we learned the blessing said when seeing a rainbow.
The blessing upon hearing thunder is:
Baruch Ata Adonai eloheinu melech ha-olam, sheh-kocho ugevurato malei olam.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, whose strength and might fills the world.
The blessing upon seeing lightning is:
Baruch Ata Adonai eloheinu melech ha-olam, oseh maaseh bereishit.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who makes the work of creation.
