Today marks 20 years since the "Columbia" space ferry disaster, in which Colonel Ilan Ramon died

Rabbi Zvi Konikov recalled how Israel’s first astronaut, Ilan Ramon, asked him before the flight how to observe the Sabbath during two weeks in orbit with multiple sunsets a day.

"Who would have believed that I would be the first Israeli astronaut of Israel? To be the first Israeli to look while floating over to our wonderful Earth and our small, but big country."  This is how Ilan <RIP> described the feeling of pride when he was chosen for the mission!
