Tzeva Adom – Hangar 11

6:00pm – We just had  Tzeva Adom in Tel Aviv! We couldn’t even hear the siron. There are so many people. It was announced on the loud speaker. We had to lay down on the floor. Do you have any idea how hard it is for a 61 year old Savta like me to lay down on the floor? Once I got down there, I decided to rest for a while. We heard 3 booms. I will assume they were iron dome. Hangar 11 is packed with people. This is what it looks like Am Yisrael comes out and supports Am Yisrael! Share this:TweetMoreEmailPocketShare on...
