Meir Panim’s Tiberias Free Restaurant not only provides warm meals, but the opportunity to socialize as well.
The holiday of Chanukah has finally come, so you know what that means. It’s time to find the right gift! I am sure those of you who purchased DavkaWriter Platinum 3.2 last year were not disappointed. However, Davka Writer Platinum 4.0 is out on the market, and it is definitely worth the upgrade. Computer users who have not purchased either of these versions, what are you waiting for? This is one present that everyone in the family will definitely appreciate.
For those who have never purchased DavkaWriter before:
If you never have tried this program before, don’t be fooled by its simple, easy-to-use interface. This program is a very powerful application that gives you a full array of options when it comes to all your word processing needs. DavkaWriter has full WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editing capability. This feature will remove your uncertainty of how your document will end up looking when it’s time to print.
Those who own a computer that uses Windows 98, I am sure you are all too familiar with the frequent crashes that occur while using your computer. These crashes can really become annoying when all your work gets lost. This can be especially disastrous when you have a deadline to meet. However, not to fear, DavkaWriter is up to the challenge. With the powerful preferences DavkaWriter offers, you have the option of saving your work after a certain amount of minutes or keystrokes. This will make sure that most of your work will be saved. If you are still scared and want to really play it safe, you have the option of creating a *.BAK (backup) file before saving the file.
One of the things that annoyed me most when using Microsoft Word and the like was the inability to have the trop (cantillation) and nikud (vowelization) included into my Hebrew text. However, with DavkaWriter Platinum, this problem is eliminated – the program comes with full nikud and trop in all of the Hebrew fonts.
In general, the word count feature that’s included with most word processing programs comes in very handy (especially for the student who is trying to meet a teacher’s word requirement for a paper due). The word count in the DavkaWriter is really fantastic – not only can you keep track of the number of words, you can also keep track of the number of nikudos (vowels) and trop in the document along with the headers and footers, and even what’s in the text box.
Let’s face it. Most people who do not type Hebrew on a steady basis are not familiar with the standard Hebrew keyboard. What adds to this disadvantage is that, with the standard Hebrew keyboard, the letters are not phonetically set on the keyboard. This can be really frustrating. However with DavkaWriter, typing Hebrew is not a problem. Whether you are an experienced typist or a beginner, you have the option of changing the keyboard from a standard Hebrew keyboard or to a phonetic style keyboard – whichever you prefer.
Many users find that switching from Hebrew to English fonts and vice versa when typing is always a challenge when using Microsoft word. DavkaWriter has made life easier by creating separate menus for the English and Hebrew fonts respectively.
In this program there is not only Hebrew and English support. There is also extensive Yiddish support that lets you insert Yiddish-specific Hebrew characters. Also your graphic editing features have been widened by giving you the ability to add borders around the graphics; you can even insert watermarks on to the page.
There are many bonuses that are included that will make your investment worth even more than you bargained for. One bonus included with the program is a collection of 250 photo and clip art images from the DavkaGraphics collection. These graphics will make a really nice enhancement to your documents (i.e. school reports, presentations, etc.). Another major bonus is that the whole entire Tanach with nikud and trop is included, along with the complete text of Mishnayos with nikud. Again, a really convenient perk that will make doing reports a pleasure. Just simply cut and paste the text it into your document.

About six months ago my parents and I started discussing ideas for a mitzvah project in honor of my bat mitzvah. I wanted to do something unique that would be meaningful to me and also do something that my friends could participate in. Immediately I thought of an organization called Sharsheret.

Is there a beginning and an end to the universe? What role can medical breakthroughs play in conception or genetic engineering? Can science help us pinpoint the end of human life? Does the soul emanate from the brain or vice-versa?
Last month’s column sketched the myriad of social programs in which the Orthodox American communal worker and leader Adolphus S. Solomons (1826-1910) was involved. Adolphus married Rachel Seixas Phillips (1828-1881), a descendant of colonial patriot families and together they had eight daughters and a son.
This year’s parade, the 87th annual extravaganza of marching bands, floats, and giant balloons, featured something really unique and different: a balloon/float of a large blue dreidel.
He strengthened his resolve
Knew his life he would lose,
But when the king uttered the words
With great pride he refused.
Just like you
I too have a soul
A soul that is G-dly
Just like you.
Now my friend
I ask you,
Am I different from you?

It’s been over sixty years since a bright and most holy people were butchered, tortured and almost annihilated. We still feel the impact of what was taken from us, but unfortunately, some do not realize the magnitude of the terrible churban that transpired.
