Ben Gurion Airport to Shut Down for Yom Kippur
For the First Time, Kinneret Beaches to be Closed for Yom Kippur
These are steps in the right direction.
Eretz Yisrael is spiritually sensitive and cannot tolerate desecration, which is why she is described as a Land that can vomit out her inhabitants.
Particularly with the shut-down of a major airport, I'd think that the logistics of doing so are quite complex.
And of course, there are those who rage against these advances (although the beaches were also closed for Memorial Day and that was fine with these same inconsistent protesters).
But the truth is that observing halacha ultimately saves lives and only brings blessing in the end, especially when mesirut nefesh is involved.
This is a big zechut for Am Yisrael and may it only increase.
Kol hakavod to all those involved.
May everyone have an easy fast and may we all merit to do complete teshuvah & have our teshuvah accepted by Hashem.
