Beresheet, the Israeli spacecraft, has been circling the moon and sending photos to Earth. How amazing is it that a country has grown and accomplished so much in only 70 years!

I am skipping any remarks about U.S. politics because it’s just the same old thing week in and week out. Leftist Democratic candidates and our three Muslim freshmen in Congress are getting boring. Instead, I read that Melania Trump will be celebrating her birthday. Now that’s something pleasant to read!

I am trying to get some work done in my office. Pesach or not, people are buying and selling, and that keeps my agents busy while still trying to make Pesach. The shopping seems never ending no matter where you shop, but, somehow, we finish and get to the Seder on time. Keep in mind that you must taste slavery in order to appreciate freedom!
