[bombs in israel]

Northern Israel is under attack, and this includes the town of Safed, where my brother is living with a family friend. He tells me he was awakened at 2:30 a.m. by a blast about three blocks away. He's now in the hills out beyond the city, which are hopefully less of a target than the city center. But with bombs raining down and the violence escalating, it's a scary situation. Hopefully he'll get himself to Jerusalem soon, out of range of the rockets, where he can stay with friends. For the moment though, he seems to be stuck. I'm chatting with him now.
