POSTS OF THE WEEK
The best posts from the Best Group on Facebook
Wow, what a crazy week! Luckily Secret Tel Aviv was a great source for information, and also a humorous distraction. Here are some of our favorite posts from the week… were Israelis involved in the naming of the big cyclone to hit India, Jerusalem’s expansion is unbelievable, and a great Israeli sale. This week the Iryah received its usual abuse – check out funny posts from Daniel, Omer, and Roy. There were two amazing videos from the sirens by Dima (scary) and Ishai (hilarious). Plus loads more great photos and videos… thanks Yosi, Gilad, Samuel, Eda, Alex, and Mor. Last but not last, my favorite geeky post from Chen showing SpaceX’s latest satellite launch. Thanks everyone for sharing!
