It has been raining all week. And it is getting colder and colder. Those intrepid ones in the mountainous areas of Israel who leave home very early in the morning report ice on the sidewalks and streets. Yes, it's getting dangerous. I didn't notice any ice when I left home this morning at 6am, but it really has been raining.
When we pray for rain, we ask that it be in quantities that would make it a blessing, not a curse.

Now the Israeli Chief Rabbis have instructed us to thank G-d for His generosity and stop the special prayer for rain. I hope they haven't jumped the gun and made the decision prematurely. We need lots more than one humongous gevaldik rainstorm.
According to the local Shiloh rainfall expert, Rabbi Dov Berkovits, davka Shiloh has received relatively a lot of rain. I just checked the Israeli meteorological site and we (Israel/Jerusalem) are not ahead of a normal year.
