Independence Day, 1949
 

Posted on: April 16th, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

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 […]

The Kiss

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

I don’t know if other cultures have this custom of kissing the land upon arrival. I know the pope does it wherever he goes, but those folks took everything good they have from us. We have a sensual relationship with this land. It changes us. I wish it changed us even more. It’s almost six […]

Parental Skills

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

When our kid was little, I used to remark on all the skills I was acquiring, which probably had no application whatsoever outside the child-rearing tasks. I could hold the baby in the crook of one arm, feed her with the same hand, and at the same time open the fridge and uncork a bottle […]

Did you count the Omer last night? This is what it looks like. It’s harvest time in a field near the central Israeli town of Modi’in. For almost 30 years, I used to experience the conflict between the second day of Passover and the first day of the Passover Chol Hamo’ed (intermediary days between the holiday’s first […]

Guard Cats and Crows

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

The streets of many Israeli cities are monitored by large clowders of cats, who receive their daily appointed meals from little old ladies. Those ladies are known for communicating much better with felines than with humans. Israeli cats are renowned for their acapella singing, especially these days, in springtime, when the singing becomes even more […]

In 1987 someone rummaging in a second hand bookstore in Vienna came across a set of about 400 color slides. Upon examination, they turned out to be images of the Lodz ghetto, taken by Walter Genewein, the Nazis’ chief accountant. After Genewein died, his companion sold the pictures to the bookstore in Vienna. From there, […]

This is a menorah of remembrance which will be lit inside the Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base chapel in Alaska during Holocaust Remembrance Day. According to the Pentagon website, Holocaust Remembrance Day commemorates the Jews who perished in internment camps under the hand of Nazi Germany. Internment camps? Really? Makes you think they died from the […]

President Barack Obama talks with Rachel Robinson, a former nurse and the widow of baseball player Jackie Robinson. Jack Roosevelt Robinson was to baseball what Barack Hussein Obama was to politics, so it made sense that the president watch the movie “42,” named after the number on the back of the man who changed baseball, […]

On March 28, 2013, Chol Hamoed Pesach (the intermediary days of Passover), thousands assembled in front of the Western Wall to receive a mega-blessing from a very large group of cohanim (Jewish priests). One of the lovely discoveries a religious Jewish person makes when arriving in Israel, is that the priestly blessing, which in the […]

It takes a photographer’s eye to catch this kind of image. This Haredi man was walking on the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City near Damascus Gate on Chol Hamoed, March 27, 2013, and for an instant looked like a two-dimensional cardboard figure. Inspired.

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

This picture was taken either during the Popkin family Seder in Duluth, in 1910, or right before the holiday. It’s difficult to imagine someone just snapping a photograph at the seder back then, because it probably required a very large apparatus, as well as a strong source of light, which probably didn’t go well with […]
