An Osprey (Pandion haliaetus), aka Sea Hawk, Fish Eagle, and Fish Hawk, caught himself a nice, fat fish over in the Beit Sh’an valley. The Osprey arrives in the Middle East in autumn, and flies back to Northern Europe in spring time. Isn’t he gorgeous?

The women leading Hadassah group tours in 1954 “learned and exercised leadership skills as the result of their work fundraising and participating in Jewish and Zionist education.” Also: “Hadassah was involved in teaching adult Hebrew classes to better promote understanding and communication between Jewish Americans and Israelis.” So, what happened?

I went looking for fun images from the Chayei Sarah get-together in Hebron, but didn’t find anything new, probably because it all happened mostly on Shabbat. But I did find this lovely image of  Chicago Square, which was apparently established during a Concert for Hebron in Chicago in 2012, is a rest area directly across […]

“State Circle” is this huge circle in north Tel Aviv (now referred to as “central Tel Aviv” which geographically makes no sense, but history is not written by geographers), which is part of the high rent district and where glitzy shops come to offer their wares.

The above photograph of the construction site near Dimona in the Negev desert for Israel’s then-secret nuclear reactor was taken in 1960. It is difficult to identify precisely who took that photo, but information in a draft U.S. Intelligence Board post-mortem strongly suggests that British and U.S. military attachés took it and similar photos. It […]

From the day I came back, almost two years ago, I’ve been wondering how come every gas station concession stand in Israel produces delicious coffee that’s so much tastier than the most expensive coffee joints in New York. The cost is about the same—between 2 and 3 dollars—but while in New York the coffee is […]

I have no idea whether the folks who designed this Shas campaign poster have read or seen Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love. But their copy definitely follows that general idea: Praying, Loving, Keeping [Promises? Mitzvot?]. Great minds think alike…

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, who’s running for reelection today, stood on a porch overlooking the City of David archaeological site yesterday. It’s innocent enough a photo op, but, let’s face it, every time a Zionist politician stands on a porch, it brings to mind Theodor Hertzl in Basel. Here’s a depiction of that same photo […]

Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu turned 64 yesterday. I’ve no idea what’s the significance of this number—I adhere to the Patton Oswalt doctrine of birthdays that after you turn 21 you really only get to celebrate the 0 years, once a decade, and that’s it. But Bibi seems to like it the long way. So, […]

A bee sucking up the nectar from citrus flowers. Later, he takes it back to the hive and vomits out the nectar into wax cells, creating honey. The entire process is done without government intervention. It’s an excellent example of how a community can function problem-free when you leave it alone…

Last night several thousand Israelis showed up to commemorate the murder of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and you just couldn’t help but compare these humble numbers to the stunning show of force a week ago, at Rav Ovadia Yosef’s funeral.
