Ministry of Information
Washington DC

Thank you for the many prayers, calls and letters of support in the wake of the recent suicide bombing attack in the city of Dimona, Israel. Please know that all members of the African Hebrew Israelite Community, the Village of Peace are safe and accounted for.

On Feb. 4, a suicide bomber entered the commercial center in the middle of town and detonated a belt of explosives. Another attacker was killed by security police on the scene before he could do the same. As a result, one person was killed in addition to the assailants and 10 were wounded. Our hearts go out to the families of those harmed. While some were in the area, none of the brothers and sisters from our community, were harmed in this, the first ever incident of its kind in Dimona’s 50 year-history.

Dimona remains home to a diverse population - Jews, Arabs, Moroccans, Indians, Russians, Ethiopians and more -- who have lived without violence over the years. With the Village of Peace at its center, Dimona will remain the beacon of hope and light to so many, around the world who long to see peace and sensitivity prevail in a troubled world.

Thank you

"Euros Accepted" signs pop up in New York City

The latest example that the U.S. dollar just ain't what it used to be
Reuters News Service

NEW YORK (Reuters) - In the latest example that the U.S. dollar just ain't what it used to be, some shops in New York City have begun accepting euros and other foreign currency as payment for merchandise.

"We had decided that money is money and we'll take it and just do the exchange whenever we can with our bank," Robert Chu, owner of East Village Wines, told Reuters television.

The increasingly weak U.S. dollar, once considered the king among currencies, has brought waves of European tourists to New York with money to burn and looking to take advantage of hugely favorable exchange rates.

"We didn't realize we would take so much in and there were that many people traveling or having euros to bring in. But some days, you'd be surprised at how many euros you get," Chu said.

"Now we have to get familiar with other currencies and the (British) pound and the Canadian dollars we take," he said.

While shops in many U.S. towns on the Canadian border have long accepted Canadian currency and some stores on the Texas-Mexico border take pesos, the acceptance of foreign money in Manhattan was unheard of until recently.

Not far from Chu's downtown wine emporium, Billy Leroy of Billy's Antiques & Props said the vast numbers of Europeans shopping in the neighborhood got him thinking, "My God, I should take euros in at the store."

Leroy doesn't even bother to exchange them.

"I'm happy if I take in 200 euros, because what I do is keep them," he said. "So when I go back to Paris, I don't have to go through the nightmare of going to an exchange place."
