This year has been a poor one in rainfall.
Out of an average annual rainfall of 550 millimeters - and the past two years have actually averaged only 350 mm. - we have had but 140 mm. until this past week.
We religious/observant Jews have added a special prayer to the morning Silent Devotion prayer these past two months or so.
Well, the farmers, agriculturists and rabbis in the Shiloh bloc area convened a special study/prayer day yesterday on Thursday, including those who undertook to fast.
