“Shifting” Into High Gear
The first day of the month of Nissan is the “New Year for Kings”.

And now that the 66th year has started (according to Torah) the earth is shaking. The children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob need fear not. All of this is so that the Almighty’s Chosen People can inherit the land.
“Have no fear, all that I have done I did for you.”
