It’s almost December, and there has only been one light rain.  We are in trouble!  And if you’re living somewhere else in the world, you’re in trouble, too – […]

Is Israel ‘a rogue state’? You’d better hope so By GABRIEL LATNER An expectation-defying speech delivered at a Cambridge University student debate last month. This is a war of ideals, and the other speakers here tonight are rightfully, idealists. I’m not. I’m a realist. I’m here to win. I have a single goal this evening […]

Just a short thought for today. This last shabbat, I was enjoying a community-wide seuda shlishit when a man of Russian origin got up to say a few words of Torah.  As I was enjoying his Russian-accent-tinged Hebrew, I reveled in the miracle of the ingathering of the exiles, which has brought home Jews from […]

In with the old: The seven ancient species of Israel as a basis for modern nutrition

By Yishai - Last updated: Sunday, November 7, 2010

There are seven specific foods that formed the basic nutrition of the ancient Israelites. They were Wheat, Barley, Dates, Figs, Pomegranates, Grapes, and Olives. With the many passing years we have replaced these ancient staples with such foods as “the Shwarma”, “the Falafel”, and “the Boureka”. Israel is currently ranked number eight in world obesity […]

Israel: De-cancerifying Your Cellphone!

By Malkah - Last updated: Tuesday, November 2, 2010

I don’t know about you, but no matter how many times they tell me that cellphones don’t cause cancer, I still get nervous about it.  I make my husband use all the gadgets (headphones, bluetooth) and speakerphone feature as much as possible.  I researched the radiation ratings of our cellphones.  I’m just that kind of […]
