Fast for Rain

According to IsraelNN, the Chief Sephardic rabbi of Israel, Rabbi Shlomo Amar has called for a fast and prayer for rain on Thursday due to the ongoing drought in Israel.

I’m not Sephardic and I don’t live in Israel but I’m considering fasting because I’m a good faster, and because I like rain–in Israel and everywhere else. It gives me an excuse to post this video, for instance.

I’m not saying that the Chief Sephardic Rabbi of Israel endorses Step Up 2 the Streets. God, no. I’m just saying, if the fast is successful and it starts pouring in Tel Aviv, someone should definitely recreate this.
