A couple of months ago, it was credibly reported that Madonna was looking for a house in Rosh Pina, a northern Israeli town overlooking the Sea of Galilee where, so we were told, she believes the Messiah will arrive. He’ll walk from Safed to Tiberias, in probably the most gorgeous part of the Holy Land, where he may be tempted to cool his heels in one of those quaint bed and breakfasts — that’s according to the script from which she and other Hollywood Kabbalists are reading. And Rosh Pina offers a gorgeous little front row seat on that divine moment, of course — drinks on the patio and watch the show.
Rosh Pin also happened to be well within range of Hizballah’s Katyusha rockets, and took a bit of a beating these last four weeks. Assuming the messiah can survive any future Hizballah fusillade, the good news for the artist also known (in Kabbalah circles) as Esther, is that Hizballah has managed to bring down property prices in northern Israel. Presumably, there are moneyed Kabbalists everywhere waiting to make a killing.
