  1. Also, if you haven’t see the video called “Former Israeli President Shimon Peres Goes Job Hunting”, you should definitely watch it now. Aside from being hilarious, it’s so nice to see a person who really dedicated his life to avodas hakodesh, and took his work so seriously, didn’t take himself too seriously. It is nice to see someone of his caliber have the good sense of humor to make a video like that…

  2. Very nice gesture for such a great leader who was admired throughout the world (except of course by the terrorists and a tiny sliver of extremists in EY).

  3. Peres did dream big (,but it put him in the clouds, and made him something of a “useful idiot” )

    We could/should develop his dreams for the Good
