That's Some Sponger

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 […]

Candle 2: Watch, Don't Use
 

Posted on: December 10th, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

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 […]

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, […]

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, […]

Israeli Prime Minister and head of the Likud party Benjamin Netanyahu cast his vote yesterday, November 24, 2012, together with his wife, Sara, at the Likud primary elections. I suppose he voted in the box marked 1 and she in the box marked 2. The primaries ended up being such a holy mess, the Likud […]

Israeli soldiers were packing up their gear as they leave their staging area near the Gaza border, on the first day of the ceasefire, Friday, November 22, 2012. This morning the Likud is holding its primaries, to select a list of candidates for the Knesset. I sincerely hope that at least those Likud members who […]

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 […]

I’m looking at the picture of this IDF soldier davening Shmoneh esreh in the fields outside Gaza, and I’m thinking: what’s going on here?

Israeli citizens are instructed to take shelter in the hallways and stairways of their apartment buildings after warning sirens sound, signaling an incoming rocket. We in the Tel Aviv area have not experienced this kind of thing since 1990. Our animals are particularly perplexed: it looks like we’re out on a walkie, but then no […]
