Thank you everyone for your emails and phone calls about Noah. Here is what I know so far. On Friday she was called up before a judge but his decision was postponed until Tuesday. In the meantime she is still in jail in Bombay. On Tuesday she will know if she is to remain in jail until her trial or if she will be let out on bail and be under house arrest in a hotel until her trial.

Her mother flew out Saturday and has seen her. The father still hasn't a visa so her mother and mother's brother flew out. The son was warned not to go as he could be arrested as an accomplice!!! So he is home...beyond upset...eating his heart out. And my son's friend remained home also.

There are a lot of rumours floating around. She did NOT have a gun or pistol, but the full magazine of bullets were for a gun not a rifle. Sixteen bullets. Because the magazine was so small no one noticed it.

Noah was tagged as a very low security risk at El Al and her luggage was sent through. The bag was not a carry-on. When she arrived in Bombay she was cleared. It was when she went to get on a plane for New Delhi that her luggage was scanned and the bullets were discovered.

The scariest thing is that an Israeli tour guide was recently caught in India with ONE bullet and spent THREE MONTHS in jail. Noah had 16 bullets.

Now everyone knows it was a mistake. But she had those bullets.

Her mother has papers signed and translated into English which she took with her.

Her mother spent two hours with her yesterday and Noah seems to be holding up all right. I'm sure she is much better now that her mom is there with her.

Everyone in Israel who knows Noah and who doesn't know her is sick over this.

I will keep you informed as I learn more.

So we add Noah bat Chagit to our prayers.

P.S.The lottery last night was for 25 million shekels. Cousin Sheldon and Bubbie Channah were NOT the two happy winners.

Today they are off to buy another ticket. Go Bubbie!!!

P.P.S.Since I really don't know what to do with myself now that I am among the unemployed, I'm off to the city to buy some wool. Back to knitting those baby blankets and sweaters.

P.P.P.S. We had a wonderful Rosh Ha Shannah! We had 18 for dinner Friday night and a good time was had by all. Must have been as the last people left at about two in the morning. How lovely!!! I hope your holiday was as nice.

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.
