According to GoIsrael, Odem Forest, in the northern Golan, is the home of a deer reserve, with many different species. Nearby you can also see Rujum al-Hiri (Circle of Ghosts), a Megalithic structure about 5,000 years old that researchers believe was used for ritual purposes, burial or as an astronomy observatory.

Rare Beauty in South Tel Aviv

Neve Tzedek (lit. Abode of Justice) in southwestern Tel Aviv was the first Jewish neighborhood to be built outside the walls of the ancient port city of Jaffa, in 1887, 22 years before the City of Tel Aviv. In the early 1900s, many artists and writers made Neve Tzedek their home, most notably Nobel prize […]

Do You Like Speculative History?

Posted on: December 20th, 2013

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Alternative History or Alternative Reality is a sub-genre of science fiction dealing with worlds in which one or more historical events unfolded not the way it did in our real world. I had a glimpse of that when I looked at this picture from Thursday’s joint press conference of Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and […]

Sudanese illegal migrants marching towards Jerusalem (they actually ended up in Beer Sheva) in protest of the new Holot (sands) detention camp, Monday, December 16. The new anti-infiltration law that was passed in the Knesset a week ago permits residents of the camps—mostly Sudanese and Eritreans—to leave the site until 10 PM each day, provided […]

Yesterday we published a picture by our own Yishai Fleisher, of a man insisting on having his morning coffee at his favorite Jerusalem café, and the elements be damned. Apparently this is becoming a trend, as you can see from the top picture on this page. Although I’m not so sure about how relaxed these […]

Our image provider, Flash90, had a lot of Jerusalem snow images of kids and dogs and snowmen that didn’t really say Jerusalem. Only a few were like these: Jerusalem famous location under a heavy blanket of snow. I’m not a big fan of snow, frankly, which is why we settled in Netanya. It’s pretty cold […]

The Israelis around me are spreading the rumors about winter being the current season here. As someone who spent 37 winters in New York City, I fail to recognize this as fact. At most, what we’re having is a cool August. The young woman walking along the shore at Mikhmoret beach, a few miles from […]

Lion in a Tree

Our expectations of a pride of lions is that they would be lying down lazily on the scorched savanna ground and once in a while get up and kill something for lunch. That’s why we named them a “pride.” Turns out the pride is also very curious, at least in Israel, at the Ramat Gan […]
