Right then and there, in New York City on September 11, 2001, on what was supposed to be just another boring election day Tuesday, vaguely around Rosh Hashanah, we entered the third millenium in earnest. We moved from the era of post-WW2 to the era of Science Fiction. Since then, in cities all over the […]

Is this a Norman Rockwell painting of Kaparot, ready for the cover of the Yom Kippur special of the Saturday Evening Post or what? The kids fell in love with the chicken, I imagine. They nicknamed him Tzvika and played with him the whole day before the somber ceremony during which they assigned Tzvika the […]

This Israeli Arab is demonstrating in front of the Russian embassy, calling for the ouster of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. The balloons he’s holding bear the image of the butcher from Damascus, with the slogan in Hebrew: Me’ifim et Assad. The line translates as “Kicking Assad out,” but the verb used is “to fly,” as […]

I’ve no idea what’s the purpose of the pink bucket of water standing next to this Jewish man who appears engaged in the Tashlich prayer, first day of Rosh Hashanah, in Jerusalem. Maybe, if your sins are rejected, you get to take them home with you in the bucket? How many sins fit in an […]

Netanya, my new, adopted home town, has miles of beautiful coastline along the Mediterranean, and a reputation in Israel for being the crime capital of this small and volatile country.

Our photojournalism provider Flash90 says this image is of “Ultra orthodox men who wear covers on their faces to avoid seeing woman as they make their way to Uman for the Jewish high holiday. Sep 2 2013.” As silly as it appears, I have much more respect for these two men, who don’t want to […]

This lady is fishing in the Ramat Gan National Park manmade lake. Her line is far from traditional, but when there enough fish stocked in the artificial lake by city employees, they’ll bite on anything. The picture, offered by our photojournalism service Flash90, was apparently rejected by the Haredi publications. Not because the woman in […]

I saw this image on Flash90, our photojournalism agency, and became curious about the sign – four raised fingers. The caption did not help: “Palestinians gather during a demonstration in support of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah on August 23, 2013.” So I went looking online and […]

My friend David Goldberger sent me this image of an sea turtle that was washed ashore Monday on the Netnaya beach, just south of the Carmel Hotel. Is the water polluted? he wanted to know.
