Old Adloyadas Don't Die

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

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. Each year, the Darom Adom Festival follows the rainy season, when the drab landscape of the northern Negev is covered with a magnificent carpet of scarlet red anemones. Too bad the folks […]

On Thursday, hundreds of Haredim demonstrated in Jerusalem, declaring that they do not recognize the Zionist State and why did the state stop their SS payments just because they refuse to be drafted. It takes years of devoted learning to come up with an answer to this complicated sugia-issue. Meanwhile they fought the cops, the […]

The Ginosar Agro team says they come from a deep understanding of the challenges banana growers are facing worldwide.

What Should Hershel Schreiber Stop?

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

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 […]

Here’s President Barack Obama talking with Chief of Staff Denis McDonough; Kathryn Ruemmler, Counsel to the President; and Katie Beirne Fallon, Director of Legislative Affairs, in the Oval Office, Jan. 9, 2014. They were probably talking about very important things. And it doesn’t look like the president was in a hurry to get up and […]

Jerusalem's Newest Lion Is Swedish

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

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 […]

I deconstructed the latest notice from Women of the Wall (they’ve taken me off their email blast list, so I had to go to their website to find it – the things I do for you…). The headline was “Double Bat Mitzvah at the Kotel- No Protests and No Torah.” The word “Mitzvah” was mentioned […]

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? Are they expecting the music to be divinely inspired and therefore one must take it in with the respect expressed by standing […]

Here’s Thomas L. Friedman at the 7th Annual International INSS Conference in Tel Aviv, on January 29, 2014.

I’m staring at this image of the current president speaking to the combined houses and to the rest of the nation, and I’m thinking back to the last time a president was able to do good things on a large scale for America, things I agreed with, things that made me proud and grateful. Now, […]

My late father, Monik Yanover, was a sweet and loving man, an eternal optimist and an all around good guy. He was my connection to the world before WW2, to a Poland where Jews constituted an entire civilization, thriving, vibrant, productive, imaginative. I would call him often to ask about this and that part about […]

Here’s the traditional Mitzvah Tanz (dance) at the wedding of the granddaughter of the Sassover Rebbe in Bnei Brak earlier this week. Don’t you agree this would have been much more fun to watch if everyone were wearing roller-skates? Imagine them gliding around the rink, the orchestra playing a Sassover niggun, joyous but still contemplative. […]

There’s no doubt that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has made a lot of fans during his official state visit to Israel, Monday.
