A banner for Ramadan

.

I came just at the right moment today to witness four Jewish students putting up a banner that says in Arabic 
HAVE A GENEROUS RAMADAN, ACCEPTABLE FASTING, AND A DELICIOUS IFTAR
And the Hebrew parts says
tsom kal -- HAVE AN EASY FAST.  RAMADAN KAREEM


At the Student Union building, Beit HaStudent, at Beer Sheva's Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. 

The month of Ramadan begins today.
Unfortunately for the Muslims this whole next week Israel will be suffering a heat wave.  
Imagine not being able to drink anything from sunrise to sunset when it is is 41 degrees C.  
Kol hakavod, respect, to those who fast.

Oh surely there's exception for drinking water in that heat Dina. I know what it's like in that kind of heat, water at least is essential. Food, eh not so much we can do without but water. I hope you are keeping safe in this dreadful time there ✨

Interesting reflection.

That is a kind set of thoughts. Too bad the rest of the Middle-East could not share these sentiments.
