Sylvester

For some reason, in Israel they named the secular-sounding New Year’s Eve after the Catholic St. Sylvester. According to legend, Pope Sylvester I healed the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great from leprosy and then baptized him. Two valuable things on New Year’s Eve… The tradition is German, I think. Every year, on Sylvester night, Berlin […]

Clashing with Bobes

Sometimes propaganda is so outlandish, it crumbles under its own weight. A case in point: these three elderly ladies walking away from the Shabbaton that was so crazily disrupted by violent, cursing, nasty security forces, hell bent on sanctifying the tenets of the 2-state (“final”) solution at the Oz Etzion outpost this weekend. The following […]

Rakeffet

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

The Rakeffet (cyclamen) flowers include 23 species of perennials growing from tubers, native to Europe and the Mediterranean Basin east to Iran, with one species in Somalia. Of all the species I saw on cyclamen.org, the one most common in Israel is the one I like the most. It looks frail and intangible, vulnerable, withdrawn. […]

The Suffering of St. Zuabi

On Thursday, Israel’s High Court reviewed the appeal by Arab MK Hanin Zoabi (National Democratic Assembly) of the Knesset Elections Committee’s decision to disqualify her candidacy. Zoabi, a vociferous anti Israeli MK, has made many enemies (many more enemies?) in 2010, when she sailed on board the Mavi Marmara, part of the flotilla that attempted […]

The fellow on the right is Rafi Peled was born in Kibbutz HaZore’a on July 2, 1944. In 1967 he left the IDF with the rank of Major after having fought as part of the paratrooper corps in the battles over Gaza in the Six Day War. He joined the police force and after years […]

You know what’s the back story here, right? The father (pictured pushing the baby carriage) and the mother (walking next to him) had no idea in the world about the cultural significance of the cheap Purim suits they found at the store for their brood (although, you’ll notice, one of the girls insisted on Queen […]

We’ve been having a whole lot of weather this winter. The Kinneret is rising at an unbelievable rate and may reach its highest point in decades this winter. Over here, in Netanya, we’ve experienced some gales at the beachfront, coupled with lightening storms, that almost blew us off our feet. In fact, legend has it […]

That's Some Wet Goat

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 […]

A model presenting a creation by a fashion student from the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, at a show during the Tel Aviv fashion week.

Zahava Is Not the Enemy

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

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, […]

Children and a Dog

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 […]
