    Nothing to do with stress and fatigue; everything to do with the rope sliding off the top of my boot regardless of how tight I tried to lock one boot on the other; and always within a hand's reach of the top. Everything else including the 2 meter wall was a breeze.

    Aren't you like 2 meters tall, or something? you just had to start the rope with a little jump and you're almost at the top.

    I knew him when he was on a NFTY summer program in Israel. He's childhood friends with my wife's family, supposedly going to host my brother-in-law on a visit.

    IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz okayed a decision to grant an honorary citation to First Sergeant Major Moshe Naftali, a Golani combatant who was killed by friendly fire in a terror attack near Eilat last August.
