Nanach comes home - HY has the ride there for him
B"H very early this morning I arrived at Ben Gurion airport, and I was trying to hitch to Jerusalem. After about half an hour a guy pulls up in a small rental - Eli Shyne, and he asks me if I'm looking to go to Jerusalem, so I tell him yes, but for a very low fare, so he calls his friend - Chaim Cohn - who's scouting inside the airport for takers, Chaim tells him that the fare is 150 shekel, so I say I am prepared to pay about a tenth of that - 15 shekel, so he tells that to Chaim, that he has a guy willing to pay 15 shekel, so Chaim asks him - is it Simcha Hochman? - !!!!! Chaim claims he doesn't have any special Divine Inspiration, he just couldn't imagine anyone else looking to pay 15 shekel for a ride to Jerusalem from the airport. So after a little scouting, no one else turned up, and they drove me to the holy tomb of Shimon Hatzadik. May H"Y bless them with all the blessings of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman!
