Yom Kippur: Very, Very Fast Forward (wicked cool video)

Why "holidays" in Israel really aren't like anywhere else:

I'll try real hard to envision this speeded-up version of the fast, ohh, about the last two hours of the



w fast tomorrow afternoon...

And to any and all - worldwide - that I may have offended or hurt with this blog in any way, shape or form, please forgive me.

Tzom kal - an easy, "fast" fast to all - and remember K-Mart shoppers: Saturday night is woodworking night:

And then, of course, there's this:Joy of Torah
A buncha' guys gettin' their groove thang on, at "hakafot Shniyot" on Simchat Torah, in Jerusalem's Liberty Bell park, 2005. (Dave Bender)

And, finally, here's a cheat sheet for the clueless, but curious.

Maccabi TA takes on the NY Knicks (don't laugh!)

From David Brinn & Co. at Israelity:

Next month the action goes down at Madison Square Garden when The New York Nicks play Maccabi Elite Tel Aviv in a game of hoops that promises to be exciting.

No, the Israel team wasn’t catapulted into the NBA in some sort of parallel universe happenstance.

It’s a fundraiser game during Hoops and Dreams Week and all the proceeds will go to American Friends of Migdal Ohr. Migdal Ohr [Lighthouse] is Israel’s largest youth village providing homes, educations and opportunity for some 6,500 young people.

Read about the game and the village in this story.

All bets are on the kids…
