‘This Too Shall Pass:’ Jewish Astronaut Shares Message of Hope From Space

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.”

Meir, whose family name means ‘light-bringer’, was answered in kind by the IDF.

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.
