Five for Friday

It was a week of lows (Yom HaZikaron) and highs (Yom Haatzmaut).  But now we have reached the weekend, and it is time to draw breath, maybe reflect a little, recharge the batteries and get ready for next week.

In this house, there will also be a wee emphasis on recovery after a  rather punishing ride on the single tracks at Beri. Or rather, after falling off too many times there!

So, time for the usual selection of links, and a bonus (belatedly) that deserves a place in every Zionist’s heart.

Bonus. For this week’s extra, I have no hesitation in pointing you at this wonderful, and inspiring Yom Haatzmaut post by Yair Lapid: I am a Zionist.
