Though the mood is great today here as the political nation of Israel celebrates 65 years of existence and prosperity, there's a bittersweet element as well, as we remember the people of Boston who have experienced an event this week that we in Israel know all too well.

The Hebrew term for bittersweet combines the words for sweet - מָתוֹק 
and bitter - מָרִיר- yielding מָתוֹק-מָרִיר.
