Imagine some unknown college team beating the Lakers in a game that counts. That’s how it felt last Sunday, when Hapoel Eilat, who has just gained entry into Israel’s top basketball league, defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv 89-82 in overtime. Since I was a child, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, Maccabi Tel Aviv was a team apart, […]

Standup Politics

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

This is the new U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, visiting troops at an undisclosed location in Southeast Asia, April 25, 2013. I’m looking at him, standing with the mike in his hand, loose, erudite, comfortable inside his skin, and I’m thinking—politicians didn’t used to look like this. I mean, put an exposed brick wall behind […]

The Silbersteins' Picnic

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

This is the Silberstein family picnicking at Turtle Lake, in the summer of 1918. I wonder how long they had to sit like that, with a frozen smile, on the family Model T. But then they got to run down the slope to the lake and splash in the cool water. I hope Mr. Silberstein […]

Lag Ba'omer Is for Everyone

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

An Israeli father and his daughter are collecting wood in preparation for Lag Ba’omer, the 33rd day of the Omer count (that began the night after the Passover seder). In Israel, this holiday is observed religiously by everyone, or, at least, the bonfire part of it. This Saturday night, expect to see the sky across […]

This Haredi gentleman serves at an IAF base, and if you ask me, he is the living image of everything that’s right with this country. This, I believe, is why he’s beaming so amazingly, and why I become filled with a sense of hope for the possibility of a loving relationship between secular and religious […]

In Jerusalem, wherever you add something modern, you inevitably create conflict between it and the ancient environment. Sometimes it’s amusing, as in the case of this ad for sunglasses. Other times it can start a war, as in the case of ads with semi-clad models pasted on bus shelters in Haredi neighborhoods. The medium is […]

Kibbutz Women

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Here are a bunch of kibbutz women filling up saltshakers, sometime between 1920 and 1940. The original caption for this image read: “Kibbutz women canning sardines.” But I don’ think these are sardines they’re pouring into those saltshakers, or the whole kibbutz would be up in arms. I spent a few minutes looking online for […]

Here’s a photograph of a sketch that was performed by the members of the Mount Sinai Auxiliary. They were volunteers who waited tables at the hospital coffee shop, and made gifts for the hospital gift shop. The year was 1951. I’ll bet you those women had a fantastic time together. I don’t know what other […]

This is the pilot control joystick, positioned on the drone aircraft control panel inside the drone radar approach control van. The van is handling take-off, flight, and landing for the QF-100 Super Sabre drone aircraft. An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot on board. Its […]

This is a Haredi young man with his Mauser rifle (popularly known as the Czech rifle, after the country that produced it). The picture was taken on April 13, 1948, in Jerusalem by renowned photographer Yehuda Eisenstark. Nuff said.

Independence Day, 1949

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Yom Haatzmaut is so rife with nostalgia for most Israelis, mostly because many of us can still remember the time before we had any. Independence, that is. Most other days of the year I’m immune to this stuff, but today I find myself staring at these heroic posters through moist eyes. Can you imagine, having […]

The Kiss

I don’t know if other cultures have this custom of kissing the land upon arrival. I know the pope does it wherever he goes, but those folks took everything good they have from us. We have a sensual relationship with this land. It changes us. I wish it changed us even more. It’s almost six […]

Parental Skills

When our kid was little, I used to remark on all the skills I was acquiring, which probably had no application whatsoever outside the child-rearing tasks. I could hold the baby in the crook of one arm, feed her with the same hand, and at the same time open the fridge and uncork a bottle […]

Did you count the Omer last night? This is what it looks like. It’s harvest time in a field near the central Israeli town of Modi’in. For almost 30 years, I used to experience the conflict between the second day of Passover and the first day of the Passover Chol Hamo’ed (intermediary days between the holiday’s first […]

Guard Cats and Crows

The streets of many Israeli cities are monitored by large clowders of cats, who receive their daily appointed meals from little old ladies. Those ladies are known for communicating much better with felines than with humans. Israeli cats are renowned for their acapella singing, especially these days, in springtime, when the singing becomes even more […]
