Coffee Superiority
 

Posted on: October 24th, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

From the day I came back, almost two years ago, I’ve been wondering how come every gas station concession stand in Israel produces delicious coffee that’s so much tastier than the most expensive coffee joints in New York. The cost is about the same—between 2 and 3 dollars—but while in New York the coffee is […]

Eat, Love, Pray, Vote Shas

I have no idea whether the folks who designed this Shas campaign poster have read or seen Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love. But their copy definitely follows that general idea: Praying, Loving, Keeping [Promises? Mitzvot?]. Great minds think alike…

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, who’s running for reelection today, stood on a porch overlooking the City of David archaeological site yesterday. It’s innocent enough a photo op, but, let’s face it, every time a Zionist politician stands on a porch, it brings to mind Theodor Hertzl in Basel. Here’s a depiction of that same photo […]

Bibi Is 64

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu turned 64 yesterday. I’ve no idea what’s the significance of this number—I adhere to the Patton Oswalt doctrine of birthdays that after you turn 21 you really only get to celebrate the 0 years, once a decade, and that’s it. But Bibi seems to like it the long way. So, […]

The area under the government of the Palestinian Authority has long been known as a place of miracles. For instance, during the first and second intifadas, no one in the PA ever died from illness or other natural causes. Everyone, one hundred percent of the people who died there were killed, often brutally, by the […]

These are new recruits of the Herev Battalion who are completing their initiation “beret trek.” Battalion 299, aka the “minorities unit,” aka the “Druze battalion,” aka the Herve-Sword Battalion, is an IDF infantry battalion which is made up almost entirely of Druze soldiers. There are many members of the same families serving in this unit, […]

A bee sucking up the nectar from citrus flowers. Later, he takes it back to the hive and vomits out the nectar into wax cells, creating honey. The entire process is done without government intervention. It’s an excellent example of how a community can function problem-free when you leave it alone…

Czech Republic President Milos Zeman visited the Dead Sea last week, on October 9. It’s one of the deepest and hence the hottest places on the planet, but if you stay outdoors for just a couple of hours you’ll have fun. He seems to be having fun. I mean, taking off your shoes, rolling up […]

Last night several thousand Israelis showed up to commemorate the murder of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and you just couldn’t help but compare these humble numbers to the stunning show of force a week ago, at Rav Ovadia Yosef’s funeral. It’s true that one event was born by the fresh, hot feelings of the man’s […]

It’s Jerusalem, July 1948. The city is under Arab siege. To get water you go downstairs to the water truck and get your portion. It’s the summer of 1948, only a few months after the declaration of independence and the establishment of the Jewish State, and things don’t look great up here. The photograph was […]

Kikar Hashabbat published the original manuscript of rav Ovadia Yosef’s decision certifying the Jewish status of the Ethipian newcomers. He wrote that they were from the tribe of Dan, who went south to Africa after the destruction of the first Temple. His handwriting is so beautiful. I’m not a graphologist, but I can recognize beauty […]

The followers of the ailing Rav Ovadia Yosef hung up gigantic posters reading “We love you, Maran (Master)” on skyscrapers in Jerusalem. And the proof is in the pudding – shortly after they hung them up, Maran started breathing on his own and appears to be recovering. The power of advertising. Back in 1993-4 I […]

Last night, Prime Minister Netanyahu told the UN general assembly that “Rouhani thinks he can have his yellowcake and eat it, too.” For the record, Yellowcake (also called urania) is a kind of uranium concentrate powder obtained from leach solutions, in an intermediate step in the processing of uranium ores. Yellowcake concentrates are prepared by […]
