Here are a bunch of kibbutz women filling up saltshakers, sometime between 1920 and 1940. The original caption for this image read: “Kibbutz women canning sardines.” But I don’ think these are sardines they’re pouring into those saltshakers, or the whole kibbutz would be up in arms. I spent a few minutes looking online for […]

Here’s a photograph of a sketch that was performed by the members of the Mount Sinai Auxiliary. They were volunteers who waited tables at the hospital coffee shop, and made gifts for the hospital gift shop. The year was 1951. I’ll bet you those women had a fantastic time together. I don’t know what other […]

Yom Haatzmaut is so rife with nostalgia for most Israelis, mostly because many of us can still remember the time before we had any. Independence, that is. Most other days of the year I’m immune to this stuff, but today I find myself staring at these heroic posters through moist eyes. Can you imagine, having […]

I don’t know if other cultures have this custom of kissing the land upon arrival. I know the pope does it wherever he goes, but those folks took everything good they have from us. We have a sensual relationship with this land. It changes us. I wish it changed us even more. It’s almost six […]

When our kid was little, I used to remark on all the skills I was acquiring, which probably had no application whatsoever outside the child-rearing tasks. I could hold the baby in the crook of one arm, feed her with the same hand, and at the same time open the fridge and uncork a bottle […]

Did you count the Omer last night? This is what it looks like. It’s harvest time in a field near the central Israeli town of Modi’in.

The streets of many Israeli cities are monitored by large clowders of cats, who receive their daily appointed meals from little old ladies. Those ladies are known for communicating much better with felines than with humans. Israeli cats are renowned for their acapella singing, especially these days, in springtime, when the singing becomes even more […]

In 1987 someone rummaging in a second hand bookstore in Vienna came across a set of about 400 color slides. Upon examination, they turned out to be images of the Lodz ghetto, taken by Walter Genewein, the Nazis’ chief accountant. After Genewein died, his companion sold the pictures to the bookstore in Vienna. From there, […]

Makes you think they died from the […]

On March 28, 2013, Chol Hamoed Pesach (the intermediary days of Passover), thousands assembled in front of the Western Wall to receive a mega-blessing from a very large group of cohanim (Jewish priests).

This picture was taken either during the Popkin family Seder in Duluth, in 1910, or right before the holiday. It’s difficult to imagine someone just snapping a photograph at the seder back then, because it probably required a very large apparatus, as well as a strong source of light, which probably didn’t go well with […]
