Quote of the Day

The Global Happiness Index rated Israel in 11th place.....this result is the direct outcome of a long line of efforts that we led.
The reasons for Israeli happiness include a decline in unemployment - 5.6%m among the lowest in the Western world, increasing the minimum wage, high growth of Israel relative to Western countries, continued decline in poverty levels, connecting the periphery towns to the center of the country and many reforms that we have led for the prosperity of Israeli people...
I am happy to see that our efforts have borne fruits in the personal feelings of Israeli citizens, who are proud of their country. As I have promised, we will continue in this way of bringing down the cost of living and solving the housing crisis.

  -- PM Benjamin Netanyahu, commenting on publication of the Global Happiness Index and Israel's high placement within

I like how he takes credit for Israeli's happiness (though government reforms that work surely has something to do with it, unless you get stuck waiting in line at Misrad Hapnim offices)..

interesting how Israelis complain so much, and around the world can be seen as rude and often angry, yet are actually so happy.

The officer that was attacked in mea Shearim

there was a horrible attack in Mea Shearim - an army officer went to visit his soldiers, and was attacked by some of the locals.

As horrible as the attack was, and I hope this problem is dealt with at the highest levels, did you catch what happened? This officer was visiting his soldiers in Mea Shearim. His soldiers live in Mea Shearim!

Even Haredim in the heart of one of the most extreme Haredi, anti-army, neighborhoods in the country, are going into the army. Maybe not enough yet, but it is happening.

There is a silver lining to this story.

The fellow writes that he has uploaded the picture with tears in his eyes..
yesterday (Yom Hazikaron), at 8pm on a flight from Tel Aviv to Madrid, all the Israelis stood up exactly at 8pm and stood for a minute of silence, without even being able to hear the siren.
It was not pleasant, and it was not comfortable, but that did not stop us from giving respect to those who fell while protecting us. Love and respect that is only in Israel!
The Israeli is not just ugly (RG: this refers to a series of videos tagged with the name "Hayisraeli Hamechuar - the ugly Israeli - that depict Israelis screaming and being rude to get something they want, like chocolate, a dress in a store, or other things)

Chumrah of the [shmitta] year

I've never heard of this chumrah before...

hattip Gilad Field

the chumrah is that the cows ate during Pesach "sefichin" - produce that is prohibited during shmitta - and therefore drinking milk from regular dairy cows is a problem. The sign offers anyone who wants to obtain milk from cows that have only eaten produce planted before this past Rosh Hashana and was harvested properly, should call...

I don't know why they don't just give the cows yevul nochri...

aren't the cows eating grass and hay anyway? what produce do they eat? I had n idea that cows are being given sefichin to eat, and I have no idea if that is a problem or not, let alone a problem with the milk that cow produces...

wow!


Shmuel Albeck talks about finding out later that he had been the one to start Israel's War of Independence as part of The Founders: The Story of the 1948 Generation, a jointly produced project of Toldot Yisrael and the History Channel.

Accent - Hatikvah (video)

Today we take on a bit of a different project: the national anthem. Interestingly, it's not from one of our 5 native countries. This evening marks the beginning of Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, so we decided to honor Israel with this original rendition of their anthem. It would be a great goal for us to record all national anthems of the world!
Happy 67th birthday, Israel!

Arranged by Simon Åkesson
Audio mixing by Evan Sanders
Video by Andrew Kesler

We have a new album out!
