Last night there was a welcoming reception in Tel Aviv for gay fathers who recently returned from Thailand where local surrogate women gave birth to their babies.

Look at this haunting image of illegal African immigrants, mostly from Eritrea and the Sudan, protesting outside the Holot detention center, not far from Ktziot, in the Negev, southern Israel. They insist Israel grant them refugee status and let them settle peacefully in the land, invite their families in and share in our success. We’ve […]

The caption attached to this image by Flash90, our image provider, reads: “Israel’s Minister of Finance Yair Lapid (R) laughs as he talks to an unidentified man during the Conference Of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations in Jerusalem, on February 17, 2014.” I was thinking that it shouldn’t be so difficult to identify, at […]

Here’s First Lady Michelle Obama taking a selfie with Baltimore student Lawrence Lawson’s phone at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va., Feb. 5, 2014.

After a month of so of drought, on Friday night our prayers were answered and rain started coming down. According to our tradition, the definition of gishmay Bracha, rains of blessing, is rain that comes down Friday night, when everybody is home after shul and there’s nowhere to go. So these were truly blessed rains, […]

I know we’re not supposed to do Valentine’s Day, because it’s a goyish thing, but social phenomena are important, and this holiday, when an entire culture pretends with all its might to feel romantic on cue, is possibly the most important of all. So here are U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Caroline Keller and Chaplain (Maj.) […]

The Adloyada, which in Hebrew is broken down into ad lo yada, meaning “he no longer knows,” which is the traditional yardstick for how drunk must one be to be keeping the mitzvah of drinking on Purim: until he no longer knows the difference between “blessed be Mordecai” and “cursed be Haman.” The Adloyada parade […]

Four Arab kids were looking at the remains of a burnt motorcycle belonging to Abdullah Harti, 29, a jihadist who was targeted and taken out by an Israeli drone. He is now in critical condition in the hospital. Harti was a bad man, who shot rockets at civilians. But I doubt that this is how […]

Last Shabbat, half of Israel was in Shul, the other half drove down to the Negev, for the Red South (Darom Adom) Festival.

I found this picture on the T.O.T. blog, with no context: Hershel Schreiber B&H owner STOP. I would be delighted to get your feedback. I kinda suspect that, being a Satmat Chassid, the demand may have to do with the Internet—seeing as B&H is one of the most successful electronics stores in America. But I […]

A new Asiatic Lion from a zoo in Sweden made his first public appearance at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo on January 30, 2014. He was a bit confused after the long travel and a little shocked by the Jerusalem sun. You don’t get much of that in Sweden. Back in December 2013, the Asian lion […]

Here’s the Kretshnif Rebbe playing the violin for his Chassidim. I know he’s having a good time. He looks content and inspired. But are his listeners enjoying themselves? Why are they standing up?
