Sometimes you feel like the battering ram, and other times you just feel battered.
An air raid siren blared for the first time in my town in the Negev this morning at 6:00.
Now we had a second alert at 6:00 pm.
We sat for ten minutes in the house's bomb shelter and waited for the boom that--thank God--never came.
If you want to keep up with the news from Israel and Gaza as it happens, this live update is a good resource.
The monumental sculpture "Battering Ram" is by Dror Eshed, 2004, in the Ben Shemen Forest.
