A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

Here’s the Israeli Navy boat INS Hanit arriving in Eilat on Saturday, March 8, 2014, after capturing the Klos C, which was carrying dozens of advanced Iranian-supplied weapons made in Syria and intended for Palestinian guerrillas in the Gaza Strip. Here’s Israeli Navy Commander Vice Admiral Ram Rotberg speaking with the INS Hanit soldiers in […]

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014. But Bette Midler is not really an actor, she’s a singer who made movies for the LGBT community and […]

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Photographer Yaakov Naumi went up to a rooftop in Jerusalem to shoot these amazing images of Haredim dancing at the massive draft protest of hundred of thousands in Jerusalem. It so reminded me of the Busby Berkeley movies from the 1930s, with elaborate musical production numbers that often involved complex geometric patterns. Berkeley used large […]

Dr. Ella Kanner (Ph.D.) is an Orthodox member of the Women of the Wall. Her Ph.D. is in Gender Studies. Personally, I hate it when people use the word “gender” because they think it’s nicer than the simple word “sex,” but who listens? I looked it up. The Tel Aviv University Gender Studies program combines […]

Hundreds of thousands of Haredi Jews attended a protest in Jerusalem, against a proposed Knesset plan to impose the military service to their young people. How about this deal: Haredim don’t have to serve, but each time an IDF soldier gives up his young life to defend them, they have to send this size crowd […]

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

I’m looking at this picture of Muslim worshipers on their hands and knees in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Ma’ale ha-Zeitim (Ras al Amud) last Friday. In order to prevent riots on Temple Mount, police limited entry to Muslim men over 50, so everyone you see here must be younger. But still, I find the […]

A few weeks before we left America, I got up on our building’s rooftop at the corner of Grand and Madison Streets in NY City and shot a full hour video of the rising sun. I did it because I had wanted to do it since the day we moved into the co-ops. I’m not […]

The IDF Herev-Sword Battalion (السيف الكتيبة‎), formerly known as the IDF Minorities Unit, is an Arabic-speaking unit of the Israel Defense Forces. Non-Jewish minorities also serve in the Druze Reconnaissance Unit and the Bedouin Trackers Unit. Part of the basic training for new recruits in every IDF unit is the beret hike, a grueling track […]

I grew up a few blocks from the Ramat Gan National Park, a man made urban park, which isn’t really national, with a nice, little man made lake. It’s only 0.7 square miles, but when I was growing up it was plenty. On summer afternoons, my dad would come home early from work and we’d […]

Mohammed El-Omrani Urban, an Arab painter living in Gaza, has been painting three-dimensional pictures on rooftops. I suppose this is the first Palestinian artist catering specifically to the artistic pleasures of Israeli Airforce pilots. Send a drone with a good camera, somebody, there’s a major show waiting to happen!

Here’s Secretary of State John Kerry speaking with Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah at his desert encampment Rawdat Khuraim on January 5, 2014. It reminded me of this picture, depicting the meeting between King Abdulaziz ibn Saud, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. At the time, the United States and Britain disagreed over the future of the […]

Na’ama was born in 2006 to Tzipi, who suffered from postpartum depression and wouldn’t take care of her newborn girl. Tzipi’s first son died mysteriously and another was neglected until he, too, finally died. Tzipi was given birth control medication, but still managed to get pregnant and carry to term. To prevent yet another tragedy, […]

Last night there was a welcoming reception in Tel Aviv for gay fathers who recently returned from Thailand where local surrogate women gave birth to their babies. Now their babies received Israeli passports, after a Supreme Court January decision, by a 5-2 vote, had ordered the state to recognize the gay adoption of a child […]

I wish I could write these melodramatic things with some ominous background music. In fact, why don’t you click the music file below to enhance your reading pleasure. Ready? Here’s a group of Jewish teenage girls in pants, posing outside a storefront on Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It’s the summer of 1929. Herbert Hoover […]

Look at this haunting image of illegal African immigrants, mostly from Eritrea and the Sudan, protesting outside the Holot detention center, not far from Ktziot, in the Negev, southern Israel. They insist Israel grant them refugee status and let them settle peacefully in the land, invite their families in and share in our success. We’ve […]

Here’s First Lady Michelle Obama taking a selfie with Baltimore student Lawrence Lawson’s phone at T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Va., Feb. 5, 2014. Many folks have been putting down the selfie as evidence of our ever increasing vanity. After all, in medieval literature there are hardly any references to mirrors, and then, during […]

After a month of so of drought, on Friday night our prayers were answered and rain started coming down. According to our tradition, the definition of gishmay Bracha, rains of blessing, is rain that comes down Friday night, when everybody is home after shul and there’s nowhere to go. So these were truly blessed rains, […]
