The Cool President

I’m not crazy about President Obama’s policy decisions, in fact, on a few of them I’m totally livid. I didn’t like it when he saved the banks instead of saving the American people and the American economy (saving banks didn’t do that). And I didn’t like it, I still don’t, when he sings the praises […]

They came down to an intersection just off Route 1, the main highway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, burned tires and demonstrated against the demolition of six homes in Ma’ale Rehavam.

The problem with the rain in areas that are dry most of the year, is that the water usually comes down all at once, creating flashfloods, and the soil hardens during the long dry period, preventing the rushing water from sinking in. The end result is that after a few days of hard rain, very […]

This is Yafo Street in downtown Jerusalem, on a winter Shabbat morning. The street is nearly empty. No light-rail cars are riding the bare tracks. A kind of white light rules the world, and the world is washed and sparkling. Jerusalem is the kind of Israeli city where secular Jews (whatever that term means) sleep […]

This is so cool (our friend Yishai Fleischer would probably say): LCDR John Rosenblatt conducts Jewish Sabbath services in the chapel aboard the aircraft carrier USS Independence (CV-62), July 28, 1979. LCDR is abbr. for lieutenant commander. The fifth USS Independence (CV/CVA-62) is a Forrestal-class aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. It was the fourth and […]

Here’s MK Moshe Feiglin of the Likud-Beiteinu faction, sittin’ pretty in the Knesset plenum hall during a new-member introduction day. Feiglin has popularized the concept of religious Jews taking over the Likud leadership. He noted that in every Likud assembly, the benches are full of knitted yarmulkes and head scarves (seated separately, of course!), but […]

This picture is titled: “Rabbi Kleinman with students from the Temple of Aaron Religious School.” It was shot in 1918, in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Just look at it – snow, not the kind you get in Israel’s cities, which is basically a little bit of frost the evaporates in a couple of hours. This is New Jersey suburban type snow, that stays in your driveway until you get someone to shovel it off. Whenever any of us expats gets […]
