WATCH: A Sanctification of G-d’s Name Happened in Scotland


Let’s be honest; Israelis are not generally known for their manners but they’ll surprise you every once in a while (although those of us who live here know just how big their hearts are).

Like last night in Glasgow, before their match against Scotland, when the Israeli players made sure the mascots were warm – as Hatikvah played in the background.

Seems like some of the dust from over there somehow transported itself in to my eye.

By the way, the above video is from ESPN, in case you think the title of this post was hyperbolic. The world was watching.
