We visited the state-of-the-art Culinary School at Ben Gurion University’s Eilat campus where the staff and students helped us create this delicious, ready to make concoction. It contains ingredients typically found in Israel like Oranges, Halva and Semolina – as well as Maple Syrup for an exotic touch. Of course you can replace the Maple […]

Holocaust Memorial Day began last night at sunset. Pretty much everything shuts down – bars, restaurants, shops etc. Television programming is all Holocaust and Shoah-related while the radio played only sad songs.

Jerusalem is a city that has been riven with conflict for centuries. And yet, if you look just below the surface, you’ll find innumerable examples of civility, fun and yes, even pure joy.

The video’s description is kinda funny: Since less and less teenagers show up to the shul for the megilla reading, AMHSI students created a pop version of Purim story from its campus in Israel, in which U.S. high school students on a study-abroad program sing and dance the “Megillat Esther.” AMHSI offers 2- and 4-month-long […]

Vice News described this clip as follows: In the wake of recent terror attacks in Europe — several of which targeted Jewish institutions — some politicians and religious leaders have predicted an exodus of Jewish people from the continent. In some ways, the numbers stack up. Last year, a record 8,000 Jews arrived in Israel […]

Yup. The Soup Nazi from Seinfeld visited Israel and did an ad for Pepsi. Larry Thomas, the Emmy nominated actor who portrayed the Soup Nazi on the show, visited 50 legendary Tel Aviv street food joints – because presumably, eating street food makes you thirsty and Pepsi is all about quenching thirst. Or something. Props […]

This isn’t actually a foreign media report about Israel. But it could be. Sort of. It’s from an Israeli TV show called “היום בלילה עם גורי אלפי” – Today at Night with Guri Alpi I guess. I don’t know. I don’t even have a TV. But it is kind of funny even though the […]
