On Monday night, I attended a mass Tehilim at KINS for the Jewish people in Israel. We recited five or six chapters of Tehillim and then Rabbi Pesach Lerner of the National Council of Young Israel spoke about the matzav (situation) in Israel with the Annapolis peace conference. The more we speak out, write letters to the editors, etc. the better.
Also, I regret that I missed a nice shiur on Shemittah given by Rabbi Yuval Cherlow. I think he's a Rabbi of a Yeshiva in Israel. He is the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Hesder Petach Tikvah in Israel.
