That's Some Wet Goat
 

Posted on: December 24th, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

We’ve been having bucketloads of rain here, in Israel, this winter, so much so that these soaking-wet goats, belonging to Kibbutz Tzova in the Judean Hills, on the outskirts of Jerusalem, had to be herded into an overnight shelter. It’s a little like looking at a bunch of wool sweaters that were left out in […]

This is Zehava Gal-On, leader of the left-wing Meretz party, speaking to students at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, on Tuesday, December 18, 2012. Meretz is a relatively small party, with three MKs in the current Knesset, which could—according to some polls—increase its size to five MKs. Back in the early 1990s, when it had […]

The Homes that Shocked the World

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

A general view of Ramat Shlomo, on December 18 2012, when it was decided that 1,500 new homes will be built. The world, including the U.S. and the E.U. is shocked, because Israel is daring to build homes east of the armistice line of 1949. Israel suggests that the 1949 line was erased in 1967, […]

I watched that terrifying video showing a 12-year-old Syrian child beheading two Army officers. And maybe the most terrifying part about it was that I clicked to the clip while unwrapping a piece of sugar free gum (an ex-smoker, I chew a lot at work). Then I was watching the boy bringing a sword down […]

Here’s a bunch of children heading home at the end of a day of work at the Orot Azion school in Efrat. They look a little tired, but otherwise well and healthy. I just wanted to celebrate the normalcy of this picture. Thank God for normal.

On the sixth day of the 8-day festival, photographer Nati Shohat took this image of the Dor family in the Jewish village of Bat Ayin in Judea and Samaria. For some reason her decided to include a fiddler in the picture. One of the Dor kids probably said, You know, I play the violin, and […]

US Ambassador at Dizengoff Circle

I suppose we’re no longer surprised by these announcements, that Dan Shapiro, U.S. ambassador to Israel, lit Chanukah candles at Dizengoff Circle, produced and delivered by Chabad Lubavitch, Tel Aviv. I suppose if tomorrow we’d see an item in the news that the Queen of England lit Chanukah candles at Trafalgar Square, courtesy of Chabad […]

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, […]

Chanukah_gelt

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 […]
