Miles City, Montana-Your aviation history lesson for the day-The only time a city in the United States was Bombed
During the dead of winter, March 21st 1944; Miles City, Montana; local residents woke to their quaint little town being overrun and submerged by the rising frozen waters of the Yellowstone river. Ice jams were building quickly, raising the sub zero river water levels over 16 feet. As the blocks of ice, slush and freezing waters flooded into the city, residents were forced to flee their homes for safer grounds. . . . Miles City Mayor L.S. Keye knew immediate action must be taken, and brought in explosive experts from a nearby town. Two local pilots took a small aircraft over the river and attempted to drop and detonate 50 pound homemade bombs on the Yellowstone ice jam , but unfortunately it had little effect. Mayor L.S. Keye then decided to do the unthinkable, and placed an urgent request to the Governors office. His request was short, and to the point "Send in the Bombers!" . . At a USAAF base in Rapid City S.D., the crew of an Army Air Force B-17 were quick to accept the unusual mission, and preparations to bomb an American city were fast underway. The crew hastily began fusing and loading 250-pound bombs into the bomb bay of their USAAF Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. Shortly thereafter, the loaded bomber with her crew of eight, took to the skies in a harsh blizzard and low ceilings. . . The plan was to deliver the bombs to Miles City where the load would be transferred to a waiting Dive-Bomber to execute the bomb delivery. As the lone B-17 was nearing Miles City, low clouds forced the plans to be changed. Under a blanket of 1000 foot overcast skies, the B-17 was then ordered to handle the bombing run themselves. . Originally planned to release the load at 10,000 feet, the low overcast forced the bomber crew to take their ship lower. At 1930 hours, in heavy snow, winds and cold, the bomber appeared over the river and executed two dummy bombing runs as crowds of locals watched in amazement. On the third pass, the B-17 released a test bomb that exploded precisely on target. Unsure of the effect, the crew brought their bomber around again. . . Making a two more passes, releasing all six of the 250 lb bombs. Hundreds of residents watched motionless, and none speaking a word. The entire town, their homes and their families future hung in the balance as they watched the bombs fall. Seconds later a huge plume of ice, mud and water exploded skyward from the frozen Yellowstone river. . The ice jam quickly broke apart, and the frozen waters slowly receded, saving the small town. The next morning, local residents were thrilled to watch as the water levels had dropped a full 10 feet from the day before. That night the crew of the B-17 were welcomed by the thankful and relieved residents of Miles City Montana. The entire crew were put up at the local hotel, and each received a well deserved steak dinner The next morning, the crew departed, and the B-17 made a final victory pass low over the town at 50 feet over the rooftops, rocking their wings as they flew back home to Rapid City SD … and so the story goes of the only time the continental United States was bombed .

Bet El comes to life once again
The city of Bet El is one of the most famous cities in our history!
Here are just a few examples:
"Hashem appeared to Abram and said, 'To your offspring I will give this land'. So he built an altar to Hashem… from there he relocated to the mountain east of Bet El…" (Genesis 12:7-8)
The famous dream of Yaakov's ladder with angels ascending and descending on it happened in Bet El – When Yaakov awoke; "he took the stone that he placed around his head and set it up as a pillar… and he named that place Bet El" (Genesis 28: 18-19)
In chapter 35 of Genesis, Hashem told Yaakov; "Arise – go up to Bet El and dwell there, and make an altar there to G-d…"
After conquering Jericho, Joshua led the Nation of Israel into battle and conquered the cities of Ai and Bet El (Joshua, chapter 8)
Bet El was one of the first places where the Ark of the Covenant was set up. People used to come there to inquire of Hashem, as it says; "They got up and went to Bet El and inquired of G-d" (Judges 20:18)
Those examples are from as far back as 3,700 years ago… but there's a much more recent history to Bet El than that!
Today, the beautiful city of Bet El – brought back to Jewish life in the 1970's - has 7,000 residents.
While much has been written about the famous Bet El Yeshiva and other institutions such as Tefillin Bet El and Arutz-7, very little has been recorded about the incredible boutique winery called "Bet El Wines."
Established by Hillel and Nina Manne, this award-winning winery produces some of the most incredible wines in Israel!
The grapes are grown in Bet El and the winery is located there as well!!
