A Jewish man is praying next to this construction site in the Gilo neighborhood in southern Jerusalem, August 13, 2013. As you can see, the building is nearly complete. It has been standing like this, in a nearly-complete state, for some time, while the Israeli government was contemplating whether or not to approve its completion. […]

Palestinians boys playing with their new toy guns on the Muslim holiday of Eid al Fitr, August 9, 2013. According to Wikipedia, Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan, and has to do with the communal aspects of the fast, expressing many of the basic values of the Muslim community. Now […]

7-Eleven on Grand Street
 

Posted on: August 9th, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

To most of our readers around the globe, this might not mean much. But the idea of having a 7-Eleven outlet on Grand Street, on the very hallowed ground where Jewish immigrants—workers and scholars, poor and relatively less poor—have set foot for the first time in America… Well, frankly, I’m not sure what it means, […]

Here’s 46-year-old Itzhak Bergel, the anti-Zionist, Neturei Karta member who is accused of spying for Iran, being led through the corridors of the Jerusalem District Court, August 7, 2013. I don’t have anything whimsical, or even thoughtful to say about this man. I know we don’t share anything. Not even a faith in the same […]

This morning we blew shofar in shul after the service. The sound (lucky us) came out bright and clear. Our souls were touched (so so) and we set out on the spiritual path leading from the Selichot to Rosh Hashanah, then Yom Kippur, then Sukkot, then Simchat Torah then a nice, long, uneventful November.

Here’s one child out of 4,000 who received their polio vaccination on Monday, August 5, 2013. Poliomyelitis /poʊlioʊmaɪəlaɪtɪs/, often called polio or infantile paralysis, is an acute, viral, infectious disease spread from person to person, primarily via the fecal-oral route. The term derives from the Greek poliós (πολιός), meaning “grey”, myelós (µυελός “marrow”), referring to […]

Our photojournalism agency, Flash 90, published this image today, with the following cryptic explanation: An Ultra orthodox Jewish youth plays the violin at the Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City, on July 30, 2013. When I see this image, I think Jascha Heifetz. Not because he was born into an ultra-Orthodox Jewish family—he was not—but […]

Here’s a picture of a Jewish couple sit underneath the chuppah during their wedding in a synagogue in Paris, France, July 21, 2013. It’s an Elul kind of picture, even though it was shot in Av. But we know that the name of the month of Av is an acronym for “Ba Elul,” Elul is […]

In the 1940s, Jewish servicemen stationed at Ft. Snelling and from as far away as Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Colorado received a free membership to the JEC during WWII. The center carried on the tradition of free memberships to Jewish soldiers begun in WWI. They gave you a nice cup of tea and you […]

Each cell in the prison is nicknamed “a safe,” weighs 66 tons and is constructed of fortified cement. No one can dig […]

As the Israeli police and Islamic Waqf have forbidden Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount, it is obvious that this man is NOT praying. No sir. No reason to arrest him at all. He is simply standing in quiet contemplation.

On the morning of the day he was elected to lead Israel’s Rabbinate, Rabbi David Lau attended the brit mila of his grandson at the City Tower hotel in Ramat gan. They probably teach you to make a bracha on a really big kiddush cup early on in chief rabbi boot camp. Kidding aside, if […]
