Peres Sends ‘Mazal Tov” to Kate and William

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

President Peres sent a special message of congratulations on Tuesday in honor of the birth of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge’s new baby.

He also sent a special gift of a baby suit with an embroidered message on it – “From Israel with Love”

“From Jerusalem, Israel, I want to express our happiness and prayers for the young prince,” President Peres wrote. “Never in my life did I see the people of the world so united in happiness. It was a demonstration of where royalty helps democracy and where the people have shown what a true democracy is. The streets were full and smiles were on everybody’s face.

“I am happy to see the whole world so happy with the birth of this young boy. I am 90 years old, so I saw his father when he was a young boy and now I hope we shall see this newly born prince, doing his job in the most democratic and royal manner. The world became richer with this event.

God bless the Queen, From Jerusalem, Mazal Tov!”

Kate Gave Birth in a Jewish-Funded Hospital Wing

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

When the duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton was rushed to the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital early Monday, anxious to avoid hundreds of paparazzi camping outside, she almost certainly missed the little plaque at the entrance.

The memorial pays tribute to the anonymous donor “who was not unmindful of his neighbors’ needs” and who paid for the wing in 1937.

In fact he wasn’t so anonymous: the wing is named after him. Frank Charles Lindo was a wealthy Jew, descended on his mother Adeline’s side from the Heilbut family, and on his father Charles’s side, it appears, from one of London’s most famous Sephardi families. While it is not clear exactly how he is related, the Lindo name is particularly associated with the silver Lindo Lamp, the earliest known English menorah, which was commissioned in 1709 on the marriage of Elias Lindo to Rachel Lopes Ferreira.

Born in 1872, Frank Lindo married Violet Portman, a member of a British aristocratic family and a member of the board of management at St Mary’s. When Lindo died in 1938, he had donated £111,500 to the hospital, including £5,000 on the morning of the opening of the Lindo Wing so that it could open free of debt. While nowadays considered state-of-the-art, at the time it was meant for  ”patients of moderate means” who could not afford private care but were too well off to be treated in a charity hospital for the “deserving poor.”

In his will, Lindo left his house at Aldeburgh to the hospital as a convalescent home for the nursing staff, with an endowment fund of £25,000 for its maintenance.

“His gifts, sympathy and understanding made possible the erection and equipment of this building for the relief of sickness and suffering,” says the memorial plaque, “and will remain for all time a monument of his outstanding generosity.”

Surely he would have shepped much nachas from the royal baby born in the birthing suite he funded.

Rock-Throwing Terrorists Injure ‘Latma’ Star

Monday, July 1st, 2013

On Sunday night, rock-throwing terrorists in the Shomron smashed the window of a family car with grapefruit sized rocks, injuring one of the passengers.

Ronit Avrahamof Shapira, one of two “newscasters” in Caroline Glick’s satirical YouTube production “Latma,” wrote on her Facebook page that her husband Laizy, the director of the popular Israeli TV series “Srugim”, was driving the family car when he spotted rocks on the road and warned his wife to protect herself and their children from an imminent rock attack.

The rocks then hit the window, shattering the glass and injuring Ronit in the hands and face as she provided cover for their children. The rocks just missed their heads, but her blood from the shards of glass dripped onto her baby.

Ronit wrote, “In the newscasts tomorrow, people will once again wag their fingers about the ‘terrible terrorism’ in which walls are sprayed with ‘price tag’ slogans, and ignore – once again – an attempted murder, one of many that take place on our roads every day, because who cares?”

“Our partners in peace want us to die. That is what they want. One cannot make peace with murderers. The murderers have blood on their hands and I have blood on my forehead. Shalom.”

Rabbi Uzi Meshulam (60)

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Rabbi Uzi Meshulam (60) died on Friday afternoon.

Meshulam was an activist who claimed that thousands of Yemenite babies were taken away from their families by the Israeli government when they were brought to Israel between 1948 and 1954 .

Meshulam’s activism escalated until it resulted in a standoff between Israeli police and Meshulam’s followers in 1994, which left one person dead, and 11 people arrested.

But the end result was that the government established the Cohen Committee in 1995 to uncover where the missing Yemenite children went.

The committee provided explanations for many of the disappearances, though a few cases remained unexplained, and are still open. The committee said there was no government conspiracy.

In Hebrew: ‘Pamper’

Monday, May 13th, 2013

לְפַנֵּק In many countries all over the world yesterday it was Mothers Day – יוֹם הָאֵם, in Hebrew.

Here’s a song by Arik Einstein dedicated to his mother. I venture to say it might be sung for most mothers. One of the lines in the song is:

אִמָּא, אִמָּא אַתְּ פִּנַּקְתְּ אֹתִי Mom, mom, you pampered me פינקת comes from the active-intensive פִּעֵל verb, לְפַנֵּק, which also means to indulge someone.

Other forms of this root:

לְהִתְפַּנֵּקto indulge oneself – a reflexive-intensive הִתְפַּעֵל verb מְפֻנָּק, מְפֻנֶּקֶתspoiled person, overly-indulged (referring to a male and female, respectively) – an adjective deriving from a passive-intensive פֻּעַל verb. לפנק has its source in Biblical Hebrew.

Friday, March 8th, 2013

Julio Acevedo, who had been arrested in connection with a car crash that killed a Stamar husband and wife and their unborn baby was charged Thursday with criminally negligent homicide, as well as three counts of assault and leaving the scene of an accident. Acevedo’s driver’s license was suspended.

Acevedo was arraigned in state Supreme Court in Brooklyn and was ordered held without bail.

State Supreme Court Judge Stephen Antignani granted an order of protection to the livery driver in whose car Nathan and Raizy Glauber were sitting at the time of the crash.

Acevedo had been brought to New York from Pennsylvania earlier on Thursday, after surrendering to police in the parking lot of a Bethlehem convenience store.

Acevedo is accused of speeding down a Williamsburg, Brooklyn street at 60 mph past midnight last Sunday, and crashing into a car service carrying Nathan and Raizy Glauber to a hospital.

Both husband and wife, 21, died on Sunday. Their son, delivered by cesarean section, died Monday. His mother was seven months pregnant and was thrown from the car, the NYC medical examiner’s office stated.

The car service came to a stop sign, and not clear if the driver stopped.

The driver was knocked unconscious in the crash.

Satmar Couple Killed in Motzei Shabbat Car Crash; Unborn Baby Survives (Video)

Sunday, March 3rd, 2013

Doctors said the baby, “Tinok ben Raizel.” probably will survive. Already termed a “miracle baby,” he will be named after his father, according to friends of the family.

The tragedy has stunned the Satmar community in Williamsburg, where Nachman and Raizel Glauber were expecting their first child. Raizel complained that she could not feel her unborn baby’s movements, and the couple hired a cab to rush them to the hospital.

They never arrived alive.

A BMW crashed into the taxi and fled the scene, leaving the couple dead and the cab driver injured but in stable condition.

The impact of the crash threw Raizel out of the vehicle. Rescue workers had to cut open the cab in order to extricate the father, and only afterwards did they notice the mother lying under a parked tractor trailer. Medics rushed her to the hospital, where doctors delivered the baby boy from the womb of the mother, who was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

The young Glaubers were buried Sunday afternoon.

Police are searching for the hit-and-run driver.
