We live on the first floor of a Netanya apartment building, which means that our living room panorama window overlooking the street below is about 15 feet high. Our girl cat, Lightening, sits in the window much of the day, basking in our Mediterranean sun. She wasn’t for the move to Israel initially, but by […]

Upside-Down Coffee

This is a normal cup of Israeli coffee, the kind you can order practically anywhere. This particular shop, in fact, is usually associated with gas stations. It’s called Kafe Hafuch or Upside-down coffee, the local equivalent of the French café au lait. It goes for between 8 and 14 shekel, or $2 to $3.5. Here’s […]

Believe it or not, this picture of a woman rowing her boat in the river against the background of yellow and red tree foliage was taken in Israel. The river is the Yarkon, which years ago used to be the dumping ground for industrial waste and now it’s relatively clean and doesn’t smell at all. […]

Wall to Wall Hadassah

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Some 2000 women are in Jerusalem this week to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization. See them marching in the street of Jerusalem like a lovely, mobile poppy field. Henrietta Szold founded the organization in 1912, to empower Jewish women, and, indeed, over the century of its existence, Hadassah has empowered […]

This is the babies room at the Bikur Holim hospital in Jerusalem. It’s a picture of the future. It’s a picture of a well functioning society aware of the fact that even after every single of its living members is dead and buried, it will continue to live and even thrive – because of the […]

Here are U.S. soldiers and Afghan policemen conducting Operation Clean Sweep in Kandahar City in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province, Oct. 3, 2012. It’s the only surefire method against a relentless army of terrorists who come in looking a whole lot like innocent civilians and end up blowing up people and things. You have to stop every […]

These are seven rocket launchers, one loaded with a rocket, discovered after the IAF thwarted a terror attack in Gaza. Last week, in response to a morning rocket barrage at southern Israeli communities, the IDF targeted Hamas terror activity sites and terrorist squads responsible for the rocket fire from the Gaza Strip. During 2012, more […]

Hallucinatory Realism
 

Posted on: October 12th, 2012

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

The Nobel Prize in Literature 2012 was awarded yesterday to Chinese writer Mo Yan “who with hallucinatory realism merges folk tales, history and the contemporary.” I liked that description very much. I went looking for texts by the fresh winner. Among several offerings online, not all of which would befit a frum website, I found […]

Reign of the Rain

A couple of days ago, we substituted, in the opening blessings of the silent Aminda prayer, the phrase describing God as maker of dew to the phrase describing Him as maker of rain. And on the night of the first day when we made the switch, we received the first serious rain of the season, […]

Training in Lebanon-Like Terrain

These are future IDF commanders practice infantry maneuvers in thickets that resemble those found in Lebanon – lots of trees, plants and shrubbery. We took this image from the IDF Spokesperson’s Office, which also wrote the above inscription. I shudder at the talk of war. I hate war. I’m not trying to sound liberal or […]

Hoshana Rabbah Rocks

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Sukkot is by far the most mystical holiday in the Jewish holiday cycle, with the four species and the sukkah and the daily hakafot in shul. Every day on Sukkot, except on Shabbat, we walk in a circle around a guy holding the Torah in shul, we all hold up our lulvim and hadassim and […]

Now, This Is a Lulav

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Here’s an image of the Lubavitcher Rebbe benching his lulav and etrog.   Nancy commented, when she saw this image, how his eyes always look directly at you in all his pictures. The etrog is upside down, which I thought meant the Rebbe is about to make the blessing, but reader JK was quick to correct […]

Some 21 years ago I had the honor of being the stay-at-home father, while Nancy was the one with the grownup job that required leaving the house every morning and going to a remote work area that involved other people. With nothing to do but my weekly columns and phone interviews, I was the obvious […]

Things to Do on Chol Ha'Moed: Tigers

Here’s a bunch of tykes staring at a tiger at the Jerusalem’s Biblical Zoo (full name: The Tisch Family Zoological Gardens in Jerusalem – The Biblical Zoo) during Chol Ha’Moed, the intermediary period between the two holiday ends of Sukkot. The glass partition provides an intimate closeness to the scary beasts that I haven’t experienced […]

Designer Sukkah

I went looking for interesting Sukkah images online, and most of them repeated the familiar decoration themes, some with more natural ingredients, others with the more common, colorful paper cutouts. They were pretty, and I’m sure there are hundreds, if not thousands of Sukkot out there that are breathtakingly original and beautiful. But so far, […]

Gulliver's Sukkah

A Toldos Aharon child is playing with the frum equivalent of a doll house in Jerusalem. And, as you can see from the dangling power cord, his little marvel of a sukkah even has light in it at night. Perfection. Nancy and I received delivery on our first “eternal sukkah” yesterday, and since it was […]

Here’s a Lelov chassid in Bet Shemesh, outside Jerusalem, getting 39 lashes on the eve of Yom Kippur. It’s part of the process of atoning for sins which used to be in wide practice even by non-chassidic Jews and is now not nearly as popular. We spent Yom Kippur in the holy, kabbalistically saturated city […]
