A major earthquake has again hit the city of Christchurch in New Zealand. All phone lines to the city are down, damage unknown at time of writing - magnitude of quake still being confirmed (6.3 estimate).  Will update when more is known.


  1. Hashem please put to rest those who have passed on, bless those who grieve for their loved ones and send help to those trapped to be free and to survive.

  2. Hello devorah, please read Rabbi lazer Brody's latest on the way things are looking for the Middle East and what we can expect etc...he is usually (in my opinion) not so blunt, yet I think with his last line especially he spells much more... I found the link on Yeranen Yaakov I believe....

  3. 65 people confirmed dead in Christchurch, and 100 to 200 people will be trapped in buildings overnight.
