Fireworks and klieg lights framed the Grand Peterhof Palace during the cultural program following the leaders’ dinner at the Grand Peterhof Palace, during the G20 Summit in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Sept. 5, 2013. And this is the Walt Disney logo… The question is, of course, which outfit sells us more illusions…

Sudanese illegal migrants marching towards Jerusalem (they actually ended up in Beer Sheva) in protest of the new Holot (sands) detention camp, Monday, December 16. The new anti-infiltration law that was passed in the Knesset a week ago permits residents of the camps—mostly Sudanese and Eritreans—to leave the site until 10 PM each day, provided […]

Yesterday we published a picture by our own Yishai Fleisher, of a man insisting on having his morning coffee at his favorite Jerusalem café, and the elements be damned. Apparently this is becoming a trend, as you can see from the top picture on this page. Although I’m not so sure about how relaxed these […]

Our image provider, Flash90, had a lot of Jerusalem snow images of kids and dogs and snowmen that didn’t really say Jerusalem. Only a few were like these: Jerusalem famous location under a heavy blanket of snow. I’m not a big fan of snow, frankly, which is why we settled in Netanya. It’s pretty cold […]

This is Kikar Hamedina – State Circle, in north Tel Aviv, yesterday, Wednesday, December 11, after the major winter storm that hit Israel Tuesday evening. When I was a kid, in April, the great Italian Medrano Circus would pitch its tent in Kikar Hamedina for a few months (I doubt they do it any more, […]

The Israelis around me are spreading the rumors about winter being the current season here. As someone who spent 37 winters in New York City, I fail to recognize this as fact. At most, what we’re having is a cool August. The young woman walking along the shore at Mikhmoret beach, a few miles from […]

Here’s Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte laying a wreath at the Hall of Remembrance on Sunday, during a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial museum in Jerusalem. But why is he wearing a yarmulke? It doesn’t look like he’s about to bench or say Shma Yisrael. Will he take the yarmulke along to Ramallah, […]

Doesn’t it look like the bus in the photograph is pushing the bearded guy along the slick pavement? Is the guy drinking a cup of coffee calmly? No, it’s just a Haredi demonstrator in Mea Shearim, Jerusalem, blocking the bus during a protest against the government proposal to draft Haredim into the military. It’s a […]

Some 100 Jews gathered last night to light the 8th candles of Chanukah at the Mevaseret Adumim area, also known as E1. The area, directly between the Jewish town of Ma’aleh Adumim and the outskirts of Jerusalem, will decide the future of Jewish life in Judea and Samaria: if it’ settled by Jews, this will […]

Some 200 Ethiopian Jews living in absorption centers throughout Israel demonstrated in front of the Knesset Tuesday to protest their living conditions. They wish to leave the centers and to receive normal apartments. They said being stuck in absorption facilities for a long time actually interferes with their absorption. At some point, the demonstration got […]

The Intifada Youth Coalition announced that it launched on Monday a “Convoy of Steadfastness and Justice,” to challenge the Israeli siege on Gaza, by sailing towards international waters. The coalition stated that the Palestinians will not allow Israel’s “illegitimate and unjust siege” to continue, and will break it. It said it would be sailing beyond […]

Our expectations of a pride of lions is that they would be lying down lazily on the scorched savanna ground and once in a while get up and kill something for lunch. That’s why we named them a “pride.” Turns out the pride is also very curious, at least in Israel, at the Ramat Gan […]

Here’s a man riding a donkey in Gush Etzion. The NY Times recently reported that “after decades of neglect and, some argue, misunderstanding, the fate of the donkey has come to resemble that of its human counterparts in hard-pressed European hinterlands: threatened by declining population and dependent for its survival on, yes, subsidies from the […]

This is Sylvester, our Tuxedo cat, sitting on our panorama window overlooking the front yard, with our menorah. This may be a good time to confess that we’re using regular, Shabbat candles for our menorah. After years of messing with the oil and the wicks and the floaters, we returned to my family’s tradition, although […]

Two members of the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce present Edith Linhoff with a prize for her Chanukah decorations, in 1953. Must be elements from a storefront presentation. Hence the Chamber of Commerce prize. Edith Linhoff was born on May 23, 1905, and died on September, 1974, at the age of 69.

The funniest thing this tearful morning was to hear Arik Einstein’s eulogy on the radio, first by President Shimon Peres and then by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, followed by singer’s last interview, where he’s screaming about the abuses of the country’s permanent establishment, how we have a beautiful country and sweet people and such a horrible […]
