On the sixth day of the 8-day festival, photographer Nati Shohat took this image of the Dor family in the Jewish village of Bat Ayin in Judea and Samaria. For some reason her decided to include a fiddler in the picture. One of the Dor kids probably said, You know, I play the violin, and […]

I suppose we’re no longer surprised by these announcements, that Dan Shapiro, U.S. ambassador to Israel, lit Chanukah candles at Dizengoff Circle, produced and delivered by Chabad Lubavitch, Tel Aviv. I suppose if tomorrow we’d see an item in the news that the Queen of England lit Chanukah candles at Trafalgar Square, courtesy of Chabad […]

Sufganiot… The name supposedly comes from their capacity to absorb whatever amount of cooking oil we push on them (Lispog in Hebrew means to sponge). In our household we called them Ponchikes, and I recall the first time I asked for a ponchike and no one in the room had any idea what I was […]

There’s an inherent problem in the rabbinic commandment that we may only watch the Chanukah candles but not use them. It works fine for stopping oneself from re-lighting a Shamash candle whose flame went out with one of the lit candles – everybody knows you’re not supposed to use the Chanukah candle for that, you […]

Publicize that Miracle!

The first night of Chanukah, in the neighborhood of Nachlaot in the center of Jerusalem, December 8, 2012. The idea of the Chanukah candles is to announce the miracle, make it as public as possible, kind of the visual equivalent of screaming it from the rooftops: We were stuck with only one little jug of […]

Not exactly. What you see here is the Israeli Packer Steel Industries plant in Kiryat Malachi (yes, where the Arab missile hit an apartment a couple weeks ago), which produce steel Chanukah Menorahs for the IDF. Last year, the company forged thirteen steel menorahs. They each weigh a little over 400 pounds and stand about […]

Late Tuesday night, December 4, 2012, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, also iron fisted boss of Yisrael Beiteinu, announced his slate for the January 22 elections, a slate he’ll be cohabitating with PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud. It’s going to be a “ritchratch” (zipper) list, with Likud 1 coming first, followed by Yisrael Beiteinu 1 in second, […]

Why Chanukah Gelt?

Posted on: December 3rd, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Yisrael Rice of Chabad.org explains that the origin of Chanukah gelt (money) is in the fact that the word Chanukah, which means to inaugurate—as in inaugurating the defiled Temple after the Hellenistic Jews were chased out of it—stems from the same root as the word for Chinuch, education. “Appropriately, during Chanukah it is customary to […]

You’re looking at the demolition of five buildings in the Ulpana neighborhood of the Jewish town of Beit-El, north of Jerusalem, November 27, 2012. The High Court has decided that the multi-family dwellings built by Jews were on a privately owned Palestinian land, and so they had to be demolished, in the name of justice, […]

These IDF soldiers decided to express how they felt about their political leadership using their most precious possessions: their uniform-clad bodies. So they got together and formed the words “Bibi Loser” in the sand. It’s grammatically incomplete, and the use of Hebrew letters to write an English statement is questionable, but there’s no doubt about […]
