This is Kikar Hamedina – State Circle, in north Tel Aviv, yesterday, Wednesday, December 11, after the major winter storm that hit Israel Tuesday evening.

The Israelis around me are spreading the rumors about winter being the current season here. As someone who spent 37 winters in New York City, I fail to recognize this as fact. At most, what we’re having is a cool August. The young woman walking along the shore at Mikhmoret beach, a few miles from […]

Here’s Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte laying a wreath at the Hall of Remembrance on Sunday, during a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial museum in Jerusalem. But why is he wearing a yarmulke? It doesn’t look like he’s about to bench or say Shma Yisrael. Will he take the yarmulke along to Ramallah, […]

Doesn’t it look like the bus in the photograph is pushing the bearded guy along the slick pavement? Is the guy drinking a cup of coffee calmly? No, it’s just a Haredi demonstrator in Mea Shearim, Jerusalem, blocking the bus during a protest against the government proposal to draft Haredim into the military. It’s a […]

Our expectations of a pride of lions is that they would be lying down lazily on the scorched savanna ground and once in a while get up and kill something for lunch. That’s why we named them a “pride.” Turns out the pride is also very curious, at least in Israel, at the Ramat Gan […]

Here’s a man riding a donkey in Gush Etzion. The NY Times recently reported that “after decades of neglect and, some argue, misunderstanding, the fate of the donkey has come to resemble that of its human counterparts in hard-pressed European hinterlands: threatened by declining population and dependent for its survival on, yes, subsidies from the […]

This is Sylvester, our Tuxedo cat, sitting on our panorama window overlooking the front yard, with our menorah. This may be a good time to confess that we’re using regular, Shabbat candles for our menorah. After years of messing with the oil and the wicks and the floaters, we returned to my family’s tradition, although […]

The funniest thing this tearful morning was to hear Arik Einstein’s eulogy on the radio, first by President Shimon Peres and then by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, followed by singer’s last interview, where he’s screaming about the abuses of the country’s permanent establishment, how we have a beautiful country and sweet people and such a horrible […]

Are you really a dog walker if you’re using a bicycle? Well, according to Whole Dog Journal, riding your bike to exercise your dog is much preferable.

It’s probably the combination of the early 20th century buildings, the café tables reaching practically to the pavement and blocking the sidewalk, the train tracks and the Haredi guys walking in the middle of Yaffo Street. It’s Jerusalem in winter the way an artist like Pieter Bruegel would have painted it.
