Jerusalem Day, Iyar 28, is also a date observed by Ethiopian Israelis in memory of some 4,000 of their brethren who perished on the way to Israel, in Sudanese refugee camps, before Operation Moses (1984), and Operation Solomon (1991). The official government memorial on Mount Hertzl was established in 2007. Thousands participated in a special prayer […]

Ammunition Hill built by the British and seized by the Jordanian Arab Legion sin 1948, thus severing the link between the Israeli enclave on Mount Scopus (with Hadassah Hospital and the campus of the Hebrew University) and Jewish West Jerusalem. The hill was surrounded by dozens of bunkers connected by trenches, with fortified gun emplacements […]

Soldiers of the IDF Skylark I-LE unit spent a week earlier this year in the Negev Desert, learning how to operate the Skylark drone. The drone is lightweight and unnoticeable up above. It boasts 3 hours of flight-time while streaming a live video feed day and night. It has a range of 6 miles. Recovery […]

Here’s a picture of President Barack Obama and President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico sharing a toast prior to a working dinner at Los Pinos, Mexico City, Mexico, May 2, 2013. The Qur’an prohibits alcoholic beverages in several separate verses. But President Obama is clearly drinking wine—looks like Chardonnay. He couldn’t possibly be Muslim! He […]

A Jewish villager (in the tzitzis) facing a stone hurling Arab outside Ofra, near the village of Deir Jarir, Friday, May 3, 2013. As the IDF has been reluctant to arrest and punish Arabs who have been routinely terrorizing Jewish motorists with rocks and firebombs—as well as a stabbing murder a week ago—Jewish civilians have […]

Imagine some unknown college team beating the Lakers in a game that counts. That’s how it felt last Sunday, when Hapoel Eilat, who has just gained entry into Israel’s top basketball league, defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv 89-82 in overtime. Since I was a child, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, Maccabi Tel Aviv was a team apart, […]

This is the new U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, visiting troops at an undisclosed location in Southeast Asia, April 25, 2013. I’m looking at him, standing with the mike in his hand, loose, erudite, comfortable inside his skin, and I’m thinking—politicians didn’t used to look like this. I mean, put an exposed brick wall behind […]

The Silbersteins' Picnic

This is the Silberstein family picnicking at Turtle Lake, in the summer of 1918. I wonder how long they had to sit like that, with a frozen smile, on the family Model T. But then they got to run down the slope to the lake and splash in the cool water. I hope Mr. Silberstein […]

An Israeli father and his daughter are collecting wood in preparation for Lag Ba’omer, the 33rd day of the Omer count (that began the night after the Passover seder). In Israel, this holiday is observed religiously by everyone, or, at least, the bonfire part of it. This Saturday night, expect to see the sky across […]

This Haredi gentleman serves at an IAF base, and if you ask me, he is the living image of everything that’s right with this country. This, I believe, is why he’s beaming so amazingly, and why I become filled with a sense of hope for the possibility of a loving relationship between secular and religious […]

In Jerusalem, wherever you add something modern, you inevitably create conflict between it and the ancient environment. Sometimes it’s amusing, as in the case of this ad for sunglasses. Other times it can start a war, as in the case of ads with semi-clad models pasted on bus shelters in Haredi neighborhoods. The medium is […]

Kibbutz Women

Here are a bunch of kibbutz women filling up saltshakers, sometime between 1920 and 1940. The original caption for this image read: “Kibbutz women canning sardines.” But I don’ think these are sardines they’re pouring into those saltshakers, or the whole kibbutz would be up in arms. I spent a few minutes looking online for […]

Here’s a photograph of a sketch that was performed by the members of the Mount Sinai Auxiliary. They were volunteers who waited tables at the hospital coffee shop, and made gifts for the hospital gift shop. The year was 1951. I’ll bet you those women had a fantastic time together.

Independence Day, 1949

Yom Haatzmaut is so rife with nostalgia for most Israelis, mostly because many of us can still remember the time before we had any. Independence, that is. Most other days of the year I’m immune to this stuff, but today I find myself staring at these heroic posters through moist eyes. Can you imagine, having […]
