When Erdogan tried to ban Twitter and spectacularly failed, it reminded me of everyone (no names please) who put pressure on PM Netanyahu to apologize to Turkey for killing their terrorist that came our way.

A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014. But Bette Midler is not really an actor, she’s a singer who made movies for the LGBT community and […]

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]

Photographer Yaakov Naumi went up to a rooftop in Jerusalem to shoot these amazing images of Haredim dancing at the massive draft protest of hundred of thousands in Jerusalem. It so reminded me of the Busby Berkeley movies from the 1930s, with elaborate musical production numbers that often involved complex geometric patterns. Berkeley used large […]

Dr. Ella Kanner (Ph.D.) is an Orthodox member of the Women of the Wall. Her Ph.D. is in Gender Studies.

The Tel Aviv University Gender Studies program combines […]

Hundreds of thousands of Haredi Jews attended a protest in Jerusalem, against a proposed Knesset plan to impose the military service to their young people. How about this deal: Haredim don’t have to serve, but each time an IDF soldier gives up his young life to defend them, they have to send this size crowd […]

I’m looking at this picture of Muslim worshipers on their hands and knees in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Ma’ale ha-Zeitim (Ras al Amud) last Friday. In order to prevent riots on Temple Mount, police limited entry to Muslim men over 50, so everyone you see here must be younger. But still, I find the […]

A few weeks before we left America, I got up on our building’s rooftop at the corner of Grand and Madison Streets in NY City and shot a full hour video of the rising sun. I did it because I had wanted to do it since the day we moved into the co-ops. I’m not […]
