See President Barack Obama running along the Colonnade of the White House with Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough’s children, Jan. 25, 2013. The President announced McDonough will become Chief of Staff, replacing Jack Lew—an Orthodox Jew—who is Obama’s nominee for Treasury Secretary. Say what you will about our second-term president, but he’s good with […]

Our photo agency, Flash90, presented this morning a few obligatory Tu B’Shvat images, to be used by harassed editors looking for a quick filler with their eyes still half closed and their lips touching the day’s first cup of coffee out of many. Each image is always accompanied by a suggested caption, providing as much […]

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama wave to the crowd as they walk in the inaugural parade along Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., Jan. 21, 2013. Say what you will, the Obamas look really good in official pictures. To select this image I went over several dozen free images available from the White […]

Last night, Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Liberman stood on the stage, apparently celebrating their stunning drop from 42 to 31 seats in the coming Knesset. What were they saying? I’m open to additional suggestions… Send them in… The image we used here repeatedly was shot by miriam Alster/FLASH90. For footnotes, look below… 1. Arthur J. Finkelstein […]

The people in this picture are residents of the colony of Petach Tikvah who, sometime between 1930 and 1936, celebrated adding a new Sefer Torah to their shul. Petach Tikvah, the “mother of the colonies,” was founded in 1878 by Rabbi Akiva Yosef Schlesinger, Rabbi Amit Grumet, Rabi Itti Saadia, and the immortal Reb Yoel […]

Stav Shaffir was born in 1985, which makes her 27-years-old. She’s also in the number 8 spot of the Labor party’s Knesset list. This might be the reason she communicates mostly through balloons. It’s been rumored that after each vote she will be casting according to her party’s policy, Stav will be entitled to ice […]

You may have asked yourself, who was the genius who, several months ago, told Bibi Netanyahu he could bolster his political power and even increase it (to as much as 50 Knesset seats), if he ran on one ticket with Avigdor Liberman’s Russian based, secularist party Israel Beitenu. It was the guy in the picture […]

Taping Up the Elephant

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

The zookeeper in this picture is taking care of an elephant’s leg injury at the Ramat Gan Safari. It’s a scary assignment, if you ask me. We have two cats, and when we need to clip their nails, it takes two of us to hold down each cat, preferably using kitchen mitts – and even […]

On Tuesday, this man was standing on the steps leading to the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, playing his guitar and singing his heart out. No one threw a Molotov cocktail at him. No one let out a gunshot. No one demonstrated. No one even cursed or spat or made a face. Photographer Nati […]

The Swedish Piratpartiet, founded on 1 January 2006, was the first pirate party. The party’s name was derived from Piratbyrån, an organization opposed to intellectual property. In other words, […]

How do you call a bunch of camels walking in the desert together? Their not a train of camels, because they’re on their own, at least in the picture. They’re not a herd of camels – don’t look like there’s enough of them for a herd. Maybe a flock of camels. “Camel” is derived from […]

A ground crew member from Electronic Attack Squadron (132) signals to an EA-18G Growler as it returns from a flight during heavy snows at Naval Air Facility Misawa, a city in eastern Aomori Prefecture in the Tōhoku region of Japan.

The Haredi boys in the picture have built a snowman in front of the Kotel in Jerusalem. He doesn’t have eyes of coal and a carrot for a nose, but he certainly wears a nice, yeshivish hat. Isn’t there a prohibition on putting a tzelem-idol in the Temple? I hope it’s not a new Chassidic […]

That’s the title for this image, of a U.S. Army gun crew fire illumination rounds at Forward Operating Base Hadrian. Intensive Training, indeed.

A Turkish hacker whose Facebook page identifies him as Hulusi Semih Karaca has hacked the website of the Ramat Gan Safari. A Jewish Press reporter who went to the Safari website in search of material on the passing, last year, of the 17-year old giraffe Dubla, found the hacked page instead. Shortly after entering the […]
