What Should Hershel Schreiber Stop?
 

Posted on: February 5th, 2014

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

I found this picture on the T.O.T. blog, with no context: Hershel Schreiber B&H owner STOP. I would be delighted to get your feedback. I kinda suspect that, being a Satmat Chassid, the demand may have to do with the Internet—seeing as B&H is one of the most successful electronics stores in America. But I […]

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Here’s President Barack Obama talking with Chief of Staff Denis McDonough; Kathryn Ruemmler, Counsel to the President; and Katie Beirne Fallon, Director of Legislative Affairs, in the Oval Office, Jan. 9, 2014. They were probably talking about very important things. And it doesn’t look like the president was in a hurry to get up and […]

Jerusalem's Newest Lion Is Swedish
 

Posted on: February 3rd, 2014

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

A new Asiatic Lion from a zoo in Sweden made his first public appearance at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo on January 30, 2014. He was a bit confused after the long travel and a little shocked by the Jerusalem sun. You don’t get much of that in Sweden. Back in December 2013, the Asian lion […]

No Mitzvot, No God

I deconstructed the latest notice from Women of the Wall (they’ve taken me off their email blast list, so I had to go to their website to find it – the things I do for you…). The headline was “Double Bat Mitzvah at the Kotel- No Protests and No Torah.” The word “Mitzvah” was mentioned […]

Yes, But What is He Playing?

News & ViewsPhoto of the Day

Here’s the Kretshnif Rebbe playing the violin for his Chassidim. I know he’s having a good time. He looks content and inspired. But are his listeners enjoying themselves? Why are they standing up? Are they expecting the music to be divinely inspired and therefore one must take it in with the respect expressed by standing […]

Tom Friedman the Last Living Sweaterdouche

Here’s Thomas L. Friedman at the 7th Annual International INSS Conference in Tel Aviv, on January 29, 2014. I’ll bet you no one else there tied their sweater around their neck like this, because no one else there was living in 1982. From the Urban Dictionary: When a person decides to wear a sweater LOOSELY […]

Do We Need a Union?

I’m staring at this image of the current president speaking to the combined houses and to the rest of the nation, and I’m thinking back to the last time a president was able to do good things on a large scale for America, things I agreed with, things that made me proud and grateful. Now, […]

Did My Dad Survive Auschwitz?

My late father, Monik Yanover, was a sweet and loving man, an eternal optimist and an all around good guy. He was my connection to the world before WW2, to a Poland where Jews constituted an entire civilization, thriving, vibrant, productive, imaginative. I would call him often to ask about this and that part about […]

The caption to this picture, presumably written by the Palestinian photographer, goes: Palestinians watch as exploding tear gas canisters fall from the sky during clashes at a protest against the expansion of the nearby Jewish settlement of Halamish, in the West Bank village of Nabi Saleh, near Ramallah on January 24, 2014.

This Should Have Been Done on Roller-Skates

News & ViewsJewishHaredim

Here’s the traditional Mitzvah Tanz (dance) at the wedding of the granddaughter of the Sassover Rebbe in Bnei Brak earlier this week. Don’t you agree this would have been much more fun to watch if everyone were wearing roller-skates? Imagine them gliding around the rink, the orchestra playing a Sassover niggun, joyous but still contemplative. […]

Here’s an official White House picture of President Barack Obama checking in on First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia as they prepare burritos while volunteering at the DC Central Kitchen in Washington, D.C., on Martin Luther King Day, January 20, 2014. I remember celebrating Martin Luther King Day at home when I […]

The Haredi Hayat brothers doing the Capoeira, a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music, on a rooftop overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem and the Dome of the Rock. They teach more than 200 students in their Dojo (training room). The brothers work in an effort to promote the martial […]

God Bless You, Mr. Harper, Send More Canadians

There’s no doubt that Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has made a lot of fans during his official state visit to Israel, Monday. Israeli Canadians went absolutely gaga over him, lining up the streets (well, one street) to welcome his procession. It’s so rare that someone out there should be on our side these days, […]

Dozens of customers line up to purchase their morning coffee at the grand opening of a new coffee store, soon to be a chain, by the name of Coffix, on Ben Yehuda Street in central Jerusalem. Coffix offers 5-Shekel coffee and 5-shekel sandwiches. That’s $1.43, which, believe it or not, is very cheap for Israel. […]

Here’s a Greek Orthodox pilgrim dipping in the Jordan River, as part of a traditional Epiphany baptism ceremony at the site of Qasr el Yahud (Castle of the Jews), outside Jericho. Christians believe this is where Jesus was baptized. It is also supposed to be the spot where the tribes of Israel crossed over the […]

Air Force One in the early morning fog at Joint Base Andrews, Md., before departure on President Barack Obama’s trip to North Carolina, Jan. 15, 2014. Personally, I hate flying. But if you gave me one of these, hey, I’d fly it. Even if I’m not the president, which I’m not, and can’t ever be, […]

A few hundred female Africans and their children yesterday marched in protest to the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv. They insisted that Israel must grant them asylum and work rights. Regarding the issue of seeking asylum, on the grounds that they had to flee their war torn Sudan and Eritrea, I’ve been puzzled by a […]

My Tu B'Shvat Resolution

News & ViewsIsrael

In the Mahane Yehuda market in Jersalem, everything is ready for Tu B’shvat, the new year for trees. The Torah permits and prohibits different uses of fruit trees based on their age, and so the 15th of the month of Shvat marks the dividing line between tree years. This means that a tree planted today, […]

My dear friend from the Lower East Side, who goes by the lens name “Yenta Laureate” is a huge fan of those ancient seltzer bottles. Her home is decorated with a cheerful row of them, a kind of museum for carbonated memories. As the brand SodaWater is increasing in popularity, threatening the give Coke and […]
