Israeli Woman Gives Birth to 1 Plus 1 On 11.1.11


babies-nurseryA woman from northern Israel gave birth Tuesday morning to twins at exactly 11:00 and 11:01 a.m., on the eleventh day of January 2011 (11.1.11).

The parents meant to arrive at the hospital earlier, but were delayed by traffic. When hospital staff informed them of the unique hour at which their children were born, the father said, “Who knows? Maybe it will bring them some luck in life.”

The babies, a boy and a girl, were the second and third child to join the family.

The children were born at Rambam hospital in Haifa.

  1. In Israel the date is European, DD/MM/YYYY.

    And Mazel Tov to the couple… though to disappoint them, the English date has no bearing on Mazel.

  2. unfortunatly for those who love knocking usage of the English date, Mazel has everything to do with the English date and nothing to do with the Hebrew date.
    This isnt the place to go into it, but briefly, the mazalos are stars which are linked to the sun,(the secualr calendar is solar) they have absolutly nothing to do with rotations of the moon upon which our lunar calendar is based.
