Jewish astronaut Jessica Meir posted on Twitter an aerial image of Israel, along with an encouraging message for everyone struggling to survive the coronavirus pandemic.

The NASA astronaut shared a picture on Tuesday evening that she took from the International Space Station of her father’s hometown of Tel Aviv and wrote in the photo’s caption: “Gazing down at the city in which my father was raised, I take to heart one of his most uttered expressions, ‘This too shall pass.’ Wise words to remember, in both good times and bad. Goodnight.”

In October, Meir became part of the first-ever female spacewalking team.

She is the fourth Jewish woman and 15th Jewish astronaut ever to be part of a space mission.

JNS is more than just another news website and syndication service. It is an organization devoted to nonstop reporting, and telling the truth about Israel and Jewish issues unburdened by the biases and institutional blinders that distort so much of what we read, hear and see about these topics elsewhere in the secular and even Jewish press.

At JNS, you get the facts about Israel and Jewish issues without the bias that so often tilts the argument against the Jewish state. JNS articles and columns are republished every week by digital outlets and print newspapers across the globe. But in the age of round-the-clock news coverage, advertising and syndication revenues are not enough to support our continued growth. We need your financial help to keep JNS on target as we continue our fair and accurate reporting.

Please help us take JNS to the next level with a tax-deductible sponsorship, either on a recurring monthly basis. Jewish News Syndicate is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
