Both Tal and Talia are popular Hebrew girls name frequently given at the start as well as closing of Israel's rainy season.

Ilan Rosen's photo of Mount Chermon, the highest summit in Israel. Because of its height, Chermon captures a great deal of precipitation in this dry part of the world and is covered by snow for most of the year - and is even home to an Israeli ski resort! The melted snow forms streams which flow into the Jordan River.
Thank you for posting these beautifully inspiring photos. I am praying for Israel during these trying times and I have complete confidence in the Almighty to deliver his people once again. Blessings. Priscilla V. CA, USA
