DocAviv – Tel Aviv International Film Festival

The 15th edition of the famed film festival features 100 films in four theatres, in addition to outdoor screenings across Tel Aviv.

Israeli documentaries have had great international success, winning prizes and critical praise wherever they go — “The Gatekeepers,” directed by Dror Moreh, and “5 Broken Cameras,” directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi, got Oscar nominations for 2012.

DocAviv is the annual festival where the latest Israeli documentary films get their world premiere.

The event also features a student competition as well as a “pitching forum” where students who have projects in production can try to pique the interest of professionals from television and cinema.

As one viewer says in this video, “The reason I like documentaries is because they are showing you a story about life and people you don’t know that you never see and hear about. Yes, especially about Israeli life.”

וירא – גדול השלום

הרב זמיר כהן בשיחה קצרה מתוך פרשת וירא מבאר את ענין השלום ועד כמה חשוב הוא בעולם.

וַיֵּרָא אֵלָיו יְהוָה, בְּאֵלֹנֵי מַמְרֵא; וְהוּא יֹשֵׁב פֶּתַח-הָאֹהֶל, כְּחֹם הַיּוֹם.
וַיִּשָּׂא עֵינָיו, וַיַּרְא, וְהִנֵּה שְׁלֹשָׁה אֲנָשִׁים, נִצָּבִים עָלָיו; וַיַּרְא, וַיָּרָץ לִקְרָאתָם מִפֶּתַח הָאֹהֶל, וַיִּשְׁתַּחוּ, אָרְצָה.
וַיֹּאמַר: אֲדֹנָי, אִם-נָא מָצָאתִי חֵן בְּעֵינֶיךָ–אַל-נָא תַעֲבֹר, מֵעַל עַבְדֶּךָ.
יֻקַּח-נָא מְעַט-מַיִם, וְרַחֲצוּ רַגְלֵיכֶם; וְהִשָּׁעֲנוּ, תַּחַת הָעֵץ.
וְאֶקְחָה פַת-לֶחֶם וְסַעֲדוּ לִבְּכֶם, אַחַר תַּעֲבֹרוּ–כִּי-עַל-כֵּן עֲבַרְתֶּם, עַל-עַבְדְּכֶם; וַיֹּאמְרוּ, כֵּן תַּעֲשֶׂה כַּאֲשֶׁר דִּבַּרְתָּ.
וַיְמַהֵר אַבְרָהָם הָאֹהֱלָה, אֶל-שָׂרָה; וַיֹּאמֶר, מַהֲרִי שְׁלֹשׁ סְאִים קֶמַח סֹלֶת–לוּשִׁי, וַעֲשִׂי עֻגוֹת.
וְאֶל-הַבָּקָר, רָץ אַבְרָהָם; וַיִּקַּח בֶּן-בָּקָר רַךְ וָטוֹב, וַיִּתֵּן אֶל-הַנַּעַר, וַיְמַהֵר, לַעֲשׂוֹת אֹתוֹ.
וַיִּקַּח חֶמְאָה וְחָלָב, וּבֶן-הַבָּקָר אֲשֶׁר עָשָׂה, וַיִּתֵּן, לִפְנֵיהֶם; וְהוּא-עֹמֵד עֲלֵיהֶם תַּחַת הָעֵץ, וַיֹּאכֵלוּ. (בראשית פרק יח, פסוקים א – ח).

וְאַבְרָהָם וְשָׂרָה זְקֵנִים, בָּאִים בַּיָּמִים; חָדַל לִהְיוֹת לְשָׂרָה, אֹרַח כַּנָּשִׁים.
וַתִּצְחַק שָׂרָה, בְּקִרְבָּהּ לֵאמֹר: אַחֲרֵי בְלֹתִי הָיְתָה-לִּי עֶדְנָה, וַאדֹנִי זָקֵן.
וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה, אֶל-אַבְרָהָם: לָמָּה זֶּה צָחֲקָה שָׂרָה לֵאמֹר, הַאַף אֻמְנָם אֵלֵד–וַאֲנִי זָקַנְתִּי.
הֲיִפָּלֵא מֵיְהוָה, דָּבָר; לַמּוֹעֵד אָשׁוּב אֵלֶיךָ, כָּעֵת חַיָּה–וּלְשָׂרָה בֵן.
וַתְּכַחֵשׁ שָׂרָה לֵאמֹר לֹא צָחַקְתִּי, כִּי יָרֵאָה; וַיֹּאמֶר לֹא, כִּי צָחָקְתְּ. (בראשית פרק יח, פסוקים יא – טו).

עתה ידעתי כי ירא אלק’ אתה, ההפרש שבין יראת ה’ ליראת אלקים, יראת אלקים הוא מה שימנע אדם א”ע מלעשות דבר כגון אכילה וכדומה הוא מחמת שאינו בשלימות ועוד נמצא בהאדם חסרון ויצמצם א”ע כפי הבנתו זאת יקרא יראת האלקים, ויראת ה’ היינו אף שהאדם מבין בעצמו שמותר לו לעשות הדבר הזה כי נפשו מזוכך מזה החסרון רק שאסור לו מצד הש”י, כי הש”י צוה פקודים ישרים לכל נפש ולפי שיש אדם שאין עוד מזוכך בזה, ע”כ לא התיר הש”י את זה הדבר כי הוא אינו שוה בכל והאדם מחויב לסבול איסור עבור חבירו, זאת יקרא יראת ה’:
