Spy Cam

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

These are undated photographs, released by Israel’s security service, from Belgian-Iranian businessman Ali Mansouri’s camera. The Shin Bet (GSS) said it arrested Mansouri—who entered Israel with a Belgian passport under the name Alex Mans—because he was sent by Iran to spy on Israel, pretending to be a windows and roofing salesman. So, this is what […]

The Chinese delegation in the annual Jerusalem Parade, September 24, 2013, during the holiday of Sukkot. The parade attracts thousands of visitors and participants from all over the country and from overseas. The parade offered three separate tracks, depending on your motivation: Track A, Long route – For fit walkers, approximately 15 km, 7 – […]

Rejoicing at the Place of Drawing Water

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Acrobats from the Caucasus Mountains last night delighted the residents of Modi’in on Simchat Beit Hashoeiva. Every night, in the Temple courtyard (where Arab kids play soccer nowadays), tens of thousands of Jews would gather to watch the Simchat Beit HaShoeivah (Rejoicing at the place of drawing the water for the Sukkot water libation ceremony).

Lodz Ghetto Sukkah
 

Posted on: September 23rd, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

The Shem Olam Institutte released this holiday images of the way Jews in the Lodz ghetto celebrated Sukkot in 1941—shortly before the train rides to the death camps were to begin. The Gur Chassidim in the Lodz ghetto, among them my family, sent a special thank you note to the head of the Judenrat (German […]

Desert Sukkah
 

Posted on: September 22nd, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

I found this image on flicker, and the photographer, Tom Giebel, filed it as a sukkah in the Negev desert. He titled it “Negev Sukkot,” which could only mean it was a permanent structure in the Negev which he, Giebel, happened to shoot during Sukkot. In any event, look hoqw ell it blends with the […]

Sukkot Shantytown
 

Posted on: September 18th, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Some neighborhoods in Israel sprout so many sukkahs, they start looking a little surreal. Especially since this model, with solid planks of wood, really looks like someone’s idea of illegal construction. On rooftops, on porches, between buildings they pop up… We built our sukkah in the parking lot, outside the kitchen. This year we decided […]

Everybody Picking
 

Posted on: September 17th, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Our image provider, Flash90, has told us yesterday that they are aware of the need for more pictures of Jews who aren’t necessarily wearing black suits and black hats keeping mitzvot. So here you go: ordinary Jews choosing lulav (palm branch) and etrog (citrus fruit) for Sukkot. You’ll note that some of the people in […]

Time to Pick an Etrog
 

Posted on: September 16th, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Why do they always show Jews in black suits and hats doing these things? Millions of Jews in polo shirts and sneakers are picking etrogim as we speak – but there’s no record of it. If a Jew without a black hat prays in the woods – does anyone hear him?

Yom Kippur Highway
 

Posted on: September 15th, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Absolutely no one drive their cars on Yom Kippur in Israel, at least not in major Jewish population centers, such as Netanya, Tel Aviv, and in the picture above Jerusalem. So Secular Israelis take advantage of the holy day’s unintended consequences and ride their bikes and skateboards on the streets and even on the highways. […]

Sometime in the second week of the war we crossed over to the other side of the Suez Canal on these floating bridges. I can still taste in my mouth my sense of elation and exuberance from 40 years ago. I didn’t cross over in a tank but in a VW bus, impounded from some […]

Spiritual Lessons from Tunnel Diggers

We can learn a lot from these Palestinian men, who are re-digging this smuggling tunnel, after the Egyptian army had brought in bulldozers that caved them all under. One of the primary lessons of the founder of Chassidism, the Baal Shem Tov was to learn a lesson from everything you encounter in life. Here’s what […]

When the 21st Century Began

Right then and there, in New York City on September 11, 2001, on what was supposed to be just another boring election day Tuesday, vaguely around Rosh Hashanah, we entered the third millenium in earnest. We moved from the era of post-WW2 to the era of Science Fiction. Since then, in cities all over the […]

Kaparot

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Is this a Norman Rockwell painting of Kaparot, ready for the cover of the Yom Kippur special of the Saturday Evening Post or what? The kids fell in love with the chicken, I imagine. They nicknamed him Tzvika and played with him the whole day before the somber ceremony during which they assigned Tzvika the […]

Ktzat Ivrit: Flying Assad Out

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

This Israeli Arab is demonstrating in front of the Russian embassy, calling for the ouster of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. The balloons he’s holding bear the image of the butcher from Damascus, with the slogan in Hebrew: Me’ifim et Assad. The line translates as “Kicking Assad out,” but the verb used is “to fly,” as […]

Can You Do Tashlich in a Bucket?

I’ve no idea what’s the purpose of the pink bucket of water standing next to this Jewish man who appears engaged in the Tashlich prayer, first day of Rosh Hashanah, in Jerusalem. Maybe, if your sins are rejected, you get to take them home with you in the bucket? How many sins fit in an […]

Netanya: Tashlich Capital of the World

Netanya, my new, adopted home town, has miles of beautiful coastline along the Mediterranean, and a reputation in Israel for being the crime capital of this small and volatile country. So, my friend David Goldberger agreed this morning in shul, while waiting for the Hatarat Nedarim (revocation of vows) court to assemble and hear our […]

Our photojournalism provider Flash90 says this image is of “Ultra orthodox men who wear covers on their faces to avoid seeing woman as they make their way to Uman for the Jewish high holiday. Sep 2 2013.” As silly as it appears, I have much more respect for these two men, who don’t want to […]

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

This lady is fishing in the Ramat Gan National Park manmade lake. Her line is far from traditional, but when there enough fish stocked in the artificial lake by city employees, they’ll bite on anything. The picture, offered by our photojournalism service Flash90, was apparently rejected by the Haredi publications. Not because the woman in […]
