    We here in Israel have been saying V’Sein Tal Umatar for two months now. Not a drop of rain fell, and in fact November was the driest on record in the last 50 years. Yet on December 5th, when Acheinu Bnei Yisroel in Chutz La’aretz started saying it, Yerushalayim received the first downpour of the year (and significant amounts in the rest of the country too.) In fact someone mentioned to me on Shabbos that it started raining exactly when they started saying it in Australia….

    I guess Eretz Yisroel needs the zechusim of ALL of Klal Yisroel together…especially pre-Shemittah

    So thank you Hashem for answering the Tefillos of Klal Yisroel.

    Even chutz l’aretz we really should have been praying for rain for two weeks, as the Julian Calendar has fallen behind by that long. I know that Julius Caesar was good to Jews, but even he would be smart enough to know not to follow it any more!

    Don’t be ridiculous. Chazal knew the 365 1/4 day calendar was slightly incorrect, and chose to use it anyway because it is simpler.

    And so did Julius Caeser.

    Popa,

    Really. He is a professor.

    Wow. A snow storm of epic proportion in Yerushalaim, 70 degrees in New York. (are they saying morid hatal for us?)

    PBA: I’m not sure of that. Chazal said 60 days after the T’kufa. Presumably if they were around nowadays they would adjust the Tekufa once every 100 years to stay accurate. We just don’t because we’re worried that we don’t have that Koach.

    Funny, I thought that when Israel experienced a drought, it was due to all of the tourists praying for good weather.
