Yesterday was a very historic day. For the first time ever, we had elections for a Gush Shiloh Bloc Council. There were two slates running, the "establishment" supported by Moetzet YESHA/Amana type people and an original thinker, my "twin" who is just a couple of days younger than me. He's the neighbor I can always count on when I need help, like finding someone (his son) to carry a new washing machine up the stairs, lending me a gas canister when we were "all empty" among other miraculous "saves."
I wish I could say that the underdog won, but he didn't. I did vote for his party, which had the letters מה.
Here's my husband voting. No, I didn't ask him who got his vote. You'll have to ask him that.
