Will Eli Cohen be coming home?

After the release of the video of Eli Cohen's execution, the Syrian rebels are reportedly now saying that they will be returning Eli Cohen's body (bones) to Israel.

A report appeared in Lebanese news saying that the Syrian rebels have access to and will be returning the remains of Eli Cohen to Israel. The report was removed a short while later.
source: Walla News, NRG

I have serious doubts as to the veracity of this report, though I do hope it will come to be true.

While I normally avoid large, mass, events in my old age, this is a funeral I would try to go to.

I hope it happens. Eli Cohen deserves an honorable Jewish burial.

shpritzing the chicken

This is weird.

On the one hand, I commend this fellow for finding a solution to a common problem. On the other hand, it rubs me wrong, just a bit, though I am not sure why - it seems on the face of it that this is harmless.

Behadrei found a notice someone posted in Hamodia in which the writer is informing the public of a solution he has come up with.

The problem being, often with kapparos - you know, that waving of the chicken over the head ceremony done between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur - the chickens that have been used already and filled with someone's sins often get mixed back into the pack of unused chickens (or even more previously used chickens), get taken to the next location and then get used again. And maybe they get reused more than once, being taken from location to location filling up with so many people's sins that these chickens' souls must turn deep black before they ever get shechted.

So this fellow has come up with a solution to the problem. His solution is to bring along a can of black spray paint to the kapparos center. After he waves his bird and relieves himself of his sins, he then sprays a bit of black on the chicken so that the chicken will be easily identifiable as having already been used. A used chicken.

This fellow writes to the public, via Hamodia newspaper letters, that they should:
1. pay attention when you do kapparos and make sure you are picking up a chicken that does not have any black spray paint on it
2. if possible, bring your own spray paint with you when you go to do your kapparos, and give your own chicken a little shpritz as well. The more people doing this, the less likely the chickens will get reused.

I actually laughed when I first read this. I hope he doesn't bring the wrath of PETA down upon him for this...

video clip of Eli Cohen's execution (video)

the rebels in Syria have uncovered this 52 year old video clip of the execution of "Our Man in Damascus" Eli Cohen, and have publicized it.

I don't usually watch or publicize "snuff" videos, but Eli Cohen has always fascinated me. This video clip makes me both sad and in awe. Sad for what we are seeing, how Eli Cohen, a great hero who saved thousands, tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of Jews from being killed. Yet we are seeing the face of a Jewish hero. Not just in an old book or picture, but an actual video of him. We are looking at greatness, at a martyr.
