The 17-year-old soldier

The DailyWire reports, "Last week, Israeli teenager Rina Shnerb celebrated her 17th birthday."

MaanNews reports:



According to MaanNews, Rina was an 18-year-old soldier. Conscription begins at age 18. How is a teenager who celebrated her 17th birthday last week an Israeli soldier?

In the footprints

If you rearrange the letters of Mashiach, you come out with yismach, “to be happy,” the necessary ingredient now needed to bring Mashiach.

Another FBI failure involving the Clintons surfaces

KikarHashabat reports that Rina Shnerb, the terror victim murdered as she was hiking with her brother and father, celebrated her 17th birthday last week. Israel does not draft soldiers at that age. Yet, when I hit the translate button of a Maan News Agency article, I got the following:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he would strengthen settlements in retaliation for the killing of an 18-year-old Israeli soldier near the West Bank city of Ramallah and wounding her father and brother.
There is also a picture of a female Israeli soldier accompanying the article.

Yearning

The Sefer Chareidim says that one of the 17 parts of a mitzva that you must do in order to fulfill a mitzva completely is to yearn to do the mitzva even if you cannot do at this moment. For example we should long for the Bais HaMikdash in order to be able to bring korbanos. We should want to live in Eretz Yisroel to be Mikayem mitzvos that are only relevant when planting in Eretz Yisroel.

Rav Levi Yitzchok MiBerditchev in the Kedushas Levi says that is pshat in the pasuk (8:1) "Kol HaMitzva Asher Anochi Mitzavecha Hayom Tishmirun La'asos" all the mitzvos that I command, you should watch to fulfill. Sometimes the word "shamar"; watch, means wait in anticipation like when Yaakov "watched" to see what would happen with Yosef's dreams. Similarly here the pasuk says every mitzva that I command, you should yearn to keep even if you are in Chutz La'Aretz and cannot do it. Then in that merit, continues the pasuk, you will be zocheh to "V'yirashtem Es HA'Aretz"; Hashem will eventually bring you to Eretz Yisroel to realize your aspirations.
