    Yom tov.. .yom tov…yom tov…va’yem barkoo… Re,eh, Beresheet rachoq naca yareach v’naga at’yom.
    Sorry for my poor Hebrew; the resurrected language of us Jews, but I hope you goyem catch the gist of my message. It is praise for my fellow Jews who, as non-professionals (not funded by any government) achieved this private-sector accomplishment.
    Now to leave aside the serious praise, I give you a Jewish joke: “Beresheet? Beresheet? Why are you hanging around the moon? (answer) I want to get as far away from the (Israeli) elections as possible. 🙂
