    Welcome back
    good morning @dazzle@banasy@bobcat@kelly@JI-F. and all fellow bloggers. Hope your weekend ids going well.
    And yes@ dazzle that film took courage to produce. The very reason I tried to bring attention of fellow bloggers to this remarkable work. Isn't it amazing that its mostly brave Jewish women who are in the forefront of this movement to stand with Peace,Truth and Justice.
