Water Distribution

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

It’s Jerusalem, July 1948. The city is under Arab siege. To get water you go downstairs to the water truck and get your portion. It’s the summer of 1948, only a few months after the declaration of independence and the establishment of the Jewish State, and things don’t look great up here. The photograph was […]

Kikar Hashabbat published the original manuscript of rav Ovadia Yosef’s decision certifying the Jewish status of the Ethipian newcomers. He wrote that they were from the tribe of Dan, who went south to Africa after the destruction of the first Temple. His handwriting is so beautiful. I’m not a graphologist, but I can recognize beauty […]

I was born today, 59 years ago, in the Assuta hospital in Tel Aviv. They moved the hospital since, but not on my account. Turning 59 is probably the least meaningful date thing in anyone’s life. But wait one year and watch me uncorking the champagne bottles. I asked my family specifically not to buy […]

This image of the Modelevsky family and the interior of the Modelevsky Grocery store in St. Paul, Minnesota, was taken in 1926. Pictured, left to right, are Hilda Singer, Charles Modelevsky, and Zelda Modelevsky. The store was located at 559 Charles Street. This is what 559 Charles Street looks like today (on Google “Street View”): […]

The followers of the ailing Rav Ovadia Yosef hung up gigantic posters reading “We love you, Maran (Master)” on skyscrapers in Jerusalem. And the proof is in the pudding – shortly after they hung them up, Maran started breathing on his own and appears to be recovering. The power of advertising. Back in 1993-4 I […]

Last night, Prime Minister Netanyahu told the UN general assembly that “Rouhani thinks he can have his yellowcake and eat it, too.” For the record, Yellowcake (also called urania) is a kind of uranium concentrate powder obtained from leach solutions, in an intermediate step in the processing of uranium ores. Yellowcake concentrates are prepared by […]

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 […]

Rejoicing at the Place of Drawing Water

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 […]
