24Jewish Video Clip of the day, Valentine’s Day in Tel Aviv  and  A Jewish Star GREAT VIDEOS SELECTION

valentinexy February 14th marks Valentine’s Day, and though not a Jewish holiday, it appears the young and in love celebrate in the Jewish State as well. Jennifer KaidenAmerican Tourist in Israel: “I celebrate Valentine’s Day because celebrating love is important and it doesn’t matter where you are around the world, it’s important for everyone.”  Yuval Sela, Flower Shop Salesman: “Every year we sell on Valentine’s Day, it’s a big day for business, people like roses, like colors. It’s a love day, people like celebration, to go out. First they buy flowers, and then the rest.” Netta Kaiden, American Tourist in Israel: “I think it’s very nice to express your love to someone you love every day, but if you have a special day, even better.” Saint Valentine’s Day is of Christian origin. And in the Hebrew calendar there is another day celebrated by couples called ‘Tu Beav’. Oren Migdal, Chabad representative: “I think it’s very sad that Jews who have traditions of thousands of years and have their own holidays imitate the non-Jews and take their holidays”. Udi Kobi, Tel Aviv Resident: “People don’t know really what is to be a jew, what is Christianity. They don’t know. So they celebrate what they think is good. I don’t judge them, but it is confusion.” Netta Kaiden, American Tourist in Israel: “If they don’t lose their connection to their heritage, I don’t think there’s a problem, you can celebrate.” Jennifer KaidenAmerican Tourist in Israel: “It’s like eating different foods from all over the world.” Yossef Faibish, Bat Ayin Resident: “It’s a Christian holiday. I don’t know exactly what it means, but I know that if people are happy, it makes them happy and they celebrate together, that’s a good thing. So why not.” As in many other countries, many Tel Avivian restaurants, shops and boutiques offer special discounts on products and gifts in honor of the festive day. And though not everyone understands or agrees with the meaning of the holiday or where the tradition stems from, most people we spoke to here in Israel, always like a reason to celebrate. Yuval Sela, Flower Shop Salesman: “I celebrate anything I can celebrate. A party is a party, Valentine’s Day and other days, whichever.” Tamar Golan, Tel Aviv Resident: “If you want to celebrate love, just celebrate. For me, this is life, to enjoy life.” Oren Migdal, Chabad representative : Most of the Jews who celebrate this day, it isn’t because of religious reasons. It’s because they want to dance and party. We have our religion and thank God, we are happy about it.” And so, a Tel Avivian Valentine’s Day takes off, even here, in the Jewish State. Sivan Raviv, JN1, Tel Aviv  Part 2

Rambam Trailer. JewishHistoryDotOrg

http://JewishHistory.org

PHYSICIAN – PHILOSOPHER – CODIFIER – COMMENTATOR – SPIRITUAL LEADER Rambam, Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, was born in Cordova Spain, early in the 12th century. Facing the terror of the fanatic Muslim Almohads, he and his family fled Cordova. For seven years they lived in the mountains and caves of Spain. During that time, his remarkable Torah and Talmudic knowledge increased. His love of Torah combined with his avid study of healing and natural medicine, the sciences, mathematics, astronomy – as well as the works of the classical philosophers, began to shape the destiny of his life. The legacy he left behind is astounding. He wrote Perush Ha-Mishnayot – his commentary on the Mishnah, which included the Thirteen Principles of Faith, before he was 30. He also penned Mishna Torah – over 14 volumes of the laws of the Torah. Amongst his numerous works he wrote and defined Sefer Ha-Mitzvot and the 613 mitzvahs – and The Guide to the Perplaxed – as spiritual and philosophical treatise. Rambam was a holistic healer of body and soul. In an age of ignorance, he was a shining light of compassion and commitment toward his fellow human beings.

Ron Jacobsohn, JN1 Israel Correspondent, Jaffa

How to Make Challah Bread

05.11.2009

Watch more How to Bake Bread videos:http://www.howcast.com/videos/239214-…

Making this braided egg bread from scratch is worth the effort.

Step 1: Mix yeast and water
Mix the warm water, 1/4 cup of flour, and the yeast together in a large bowl, and let it stand for 10 to 20 minutes, until it begins to foam and puff up.

Step 2: Beat in sugar, oil, eggs, and salt
Whisk in the sugar, oil, three eggs, and salt.

Tip
You can substitute ¼ cup honey for the sugar.

Step 3: Add the flour
Add in the rest of the flour 1 cup at a time, kneading it in with your hands once the mixture thickens. Knead for about five minutes until smooth, adding flour if it’s too sticky. Put the dough in a clean bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rise until the dough has doubled in size, about two hours.

Step 4: Punch it
Punch the dough down and transfer it to a lightly-floured surface. Knead for about five minutes, adding flour if needed.

Step 5: Make a braid
Divide the dough into three equal parts and roll each piece into an approximately 9-inch long rope. Braid the three ropes together, and pinch the ends together to seal.

Step 6: Let it sit
Put the braid on a greased baking sheet, cover with a dishcloth, and let it rise until it has doubled in size. The dough should stay dented when you poke it, instead of springing back into place.

Step 7: Preheat oven
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Beat the remaining egg and brush it on the top of the braid. Sprinkle with poppy seeds if you like.
Step 8: Bake
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until bread is golden brown. Test for doneness by taking it out of the oven and rapping it on the bottom with your knuckles; if it sounds hollow, it’s ready.
Tip
If the top is browning too fast, tent it with foil.
Step 9: Enjoy!
Cool at least one hour before slicing. If you have any left over, use it for French toast in the morning!

Jewish Food Kasha Kasha Recipes Kupecheskaya Russian Jewish

17.02.2014  Ask the Rabbi about Kashrut

I have been taking requests for about six months now and doing mostly Asian and Italian cuisines as they are my fave cuisines. The fact is that I LOVE all food and that is why I cook. Last week one of my subbers made a request that I cook some Jewish food. To tell the truth I was stumped by the request because I have never cooked Jewish food. I mean I have eaten matzo ball soup and I make and eat chopped liver and I have eaten at Jewish deli’s but I have never made Jewish food/cuisine. So I did some research and I came up with a traditional Jewish comfort food called Kasha! This week I am going to make the Russian Jewish version of this traditional Jewish comfort food. It is usually called Kasha Varnishkes but in Russian it’s called “Kupecheskaya.” It is a version of Kasha made with onions, garlic, mushrooms and bowtie pasta with the addition of scrambled or crumbled hard boiled eggs. I will be using scrambled eggs as they soak up the flavors of this dish quite well. You can find the exact recipe for this dish on my blog @ http://www.richardblainesezcooking.co

Izzy’s Traditional Jewish Recipes

 08.03.2007

Izzy originally from Poland, is an amazing person who spent from age 18 to 24 in German concentration camps doing slave labor, including Auschwitz. Never having had more then a 7th grade education he was liberated in 1945 with nothing more then the clothes he was given, yet he stayed in Germany and became a millionaire there while still in his thirties. In 1964 he came to the US and continued doing business here. Now at 85 he is retired doing the snowbird thing and doing his favorite thing, cooking. Everybody who has tasted his food raves about it, and everyone who knows him thinks he is a real character.
Just for a taste here are his Potato Latkes
available at http://www.simonsezproduction.com and Ebay
This is a 2 volumes, 2 discs DVD of Auschwitz survivor Izzy cooking up a storm in his kitchen. Watch him make Gefilte Fish, Chicken Soup, Lockschen Kugel, Potato Kugel, Potato Latkes, Horse Raddish, Brisket & Veal, Chicken Dish, Matze Brei and Butter Crumb Cake. Everything you need for the holidays. I’ve eaten this food and words can’t describe it. Don’t buy gefilte fish out of a jar make it from scratch, and you’ve never had chicken soup like this before. No wonder Izzy has so much energy at 85. He’s quite a character and fun to watch. This is truly food from the good old days and you can watch it being made. How easy is that to follow?

Now more recipes added: Izzy’s Cookies and Baking Dough, Apple Cake, Goulash, and Cucumber Salad. (The Goulash is my favorite) and really simple to make.

Goldenes Kalb 1 Kabbala Fankfurt

Das goldene Kalb
Zitat 1
1 Als aber das Volk sah, dass Mose ausblieb und nicht wieder von dem Berge zurückkam, sammelte es sich gegen Aaron und sprach zu ihm: Auf, mach uns einen G-tt, der vor uns hergehe! Denn wir wissen nicht, was diesem Mann Mose widerfahren ist, der uns aus Ägyptenland geführt hat.
2 Aaron sprach zu ihnen: Reißt ab die goldenen Ohrringe an den Ohren eurer Frauen, eurer Söhne und eurer Töchter und bringt sie zu mir.
3 Da riss alles Volk sich die goldenen Ohrringe von den Ohren und brachte sie zu Aaron.
4 Und er nahm sie von ihren Händen und bildete das Gold in einer Form und machte ein gegossenes Kalb. Und sie sprachen: Das ist dein G-tt, Israel, der dich aus Ägyptenland geführt hat!
(2. Moses 32:1-4)

Zitat 2
19 Sie machten ein Kalb am Horeb und beteten das gegossene Bild an
20 und verwandelten die Herrlichkeit ihres G-ttes in das Bild eines Ochsen, der Gras frisst.
21 Sie vergaßen G-tt, ihren Heiland, der so große Dinge in Ägypten getan hatte,
22 Wunder im Lande Hams und schreckliche Taten am Schilfmeer.
23 Und er gedachte, sie zu vertilgen, wäre nicht Mose gewesen, sein Auserwählter; der trat vor ihm in die Bresche, seinen Grimm abzuwenden, dass er sie nicht verderbe.
(Psalmen 106:19-23)

Zitat 3
Wo keine Rinder sind, da ist die Krippe leer; aber die Kraft des Ochsen bringt reichen Ertrag.
(Sprüche 14:4)

Zitat 4
3 Ein Ochse kennt seinen Herrn und ein Esel die Krippe seines Herrn; aber Israel kennt’s nicht, und mein Volk versteht’s nicht.
(Jesaja 1:3)

Jewish communities in the Middle East have contracted dramatically in recent decades – apart from a small community in Teheran and a larger one in Turkey,which is well integrated into the Muslim country.500 years ago,Sephardic Jews fled the Spanish Inquisition and settled in the Ottoman Empire. Today,the community numbers some 26,000 members. It still publishes its own newspaper,called Shalom ,runs a hospital,a retirement home and a dozen synagogues. Traditionally,Turkey has been among Israel’s allies,but the fighting in Gaza has put a severe strain on the relationship. Istanbul’s Jewish community is feeling the tension.

Yiddish vs. German: an experiment.

 03.06.2010

A comparison between Yiddish and German. I made up a bunch of sentences to highlight some of the differences between German and Yiddish with respect to vocabulary, grammar (especially word order), phonology (sounds) and vowels. The sentences were read aloud in English and my friend Frank, a native German speaker from Bavaria (but speaking Hochdeutsch/standard German) translated them into German and I translated them into my non-native Ukrainian Yiddish. Even if you don’t speak either language you can hear where the two are different and perhaps pick up a bit of either one or both. German speakers should note that other Yiddish dialects (Litvak, northern Ukrainian) pronounce “u” the same way as in German so “und” (and) is “und” but in my dialect it becomes “in”. Otherwise all of the differences in the vowels between the two languages are pretty normal. You may also notice that there are words in Yiddish that exist in German dialects but not Hochdeutsch (“epes” for “etvas”, “do” for “hier”) and there are words in German that Frank uses that are also used in Yiddish (Geschaft, Stunde) but which I don’t use. Of all the German dialects Yiddish is probably closest to some forms of Badisch and Swiss German. Yiddish was the language of Eastern European (Ashkenazi) Jews until the Holocaust and is now primarily spoken in Hasidic communities in Israel, the USA, England, Australia, Canada and Belgium. It is written in the Hebrew alphabet.

WEEKLY STORY: Hypocrisy

Hypocrisy
Adar I 25, 5774 · February 25, 2014

They brought the Sanctuary to Moses, the tent and all its furnishings . . . Moses saw all the work, and behold, they had done it as G‑d had commanded . . . and Moses blessed them.

Exodus 39:33–43

Moses blessed them: He said, “May it be the will of G‑d that His presence dwell within the work of your hands.”

—Rashi’s commentary

Often, a person may feel inadequate in the face of a spiritual challenge, and contend that he is simply not equipped to reach for “lofty” attainments. For example, one may argue that while the perfection of his behavior is a matter of choice, he lacks the mental and emotional fortitude to transform his character. This, he maintains, is best left to individuals of a greater spiritual stature than himself.

Says the Torah: You do yours. Apply yourself to constructing the external edifice, and the Almighty will provide the “soul” to dwell therein. Do your utmost to make yourself a fitting vessel, and G‑d will fill it with the sublime resources which seem so elusive to you now.1

—Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi

Once, a certain individual was condemned to Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi as a hypocrite. “He considers himself a chassid (‘pious one’),” the rebbe was told, “and has assumed all sorts of pious customs and practices. He acts like a real holy fellow. But it’s all superficial: internally, his mind and heart are as coarse and unrefined as ever.”

“Well,” said the rebbe, “in that case, may he meet the end that the Talmud predicts for such people.”

The “informers” were taken aback. They had merely desired to “warn” the rebbe about this individual. But now, what sort of calamity had the rebbe called down upon him?

Rabbi Schneur Zalman explained: In the final mishnah of Tractate Pe’ah, the Talmud discusses the criteria for a pauper to be eligible to receive charity. The section concludes with the warning: “One who is not in need, but takes . . . one who is not lame or blind, but makes himself as such—will not die of old age until he is indeed as such.”

“In the same vein,” concluded the rebbe, “one who makes of himself more than he is in matters of righteousness and piety, will eventually find that these traits have become ingrained in his character and very being.”

FOOTNOTES
1. In his Tanya, Rabbi Schneur Zalman applies this to the beinoni (“ordinary man”) who feels that he lacks the spiritual credentials to aspire to the level of tzaddik, the perfectly righteous individual, who has utterly transformed himself both “inside” and “out.” In the words of Rabbi Schneur Zalman: “Habit reigns supreme in any sphere, and becomes second nature. So, if one accustoms himself to despise evil, it will to some extent become despicable in truth; likewise, if one accustoms himself to gladden his heart in G‑d through reflection upon His greatness, his self-impulsion will bring on inspiration from on high. If he pursues this path, perhaps a spirit from above will descend upon him and imbue him with the soul of a tzaddik.

VOICES: It’s a Dark World

It’s a Dark World
Adar I 25, 5774 · February 25, 2014
Unless we open the shutters

I don’t know what I expected from an around-the-world flight . . . but it wasn’t this. On my flight from California to Australia, it has been dark for more than 16 hours. I remember the sun setting. It was around 5 PM. Since that moment, it has remained the darkest of nights.

Well, fine, I’ll be honest. I know that the plane is not surrounded by a coal-black sky. But here inside the plane, it is dark. All windowshades are sealed shut, and the stewardesses are desperate to convince us that it’s time to sleep. For all intents and purposes, it is nighttime.

At this very moment the sun is shining, but we don’t see even a hint of its glow.

And why would we want to? We, the people of the plane, are content. Our eyes have adjusted; we have acclimated to the darkness. Some of us are dozing, and the alert among us are happily entertained by their self-powered devices.

“Sit

It has been dark for more than 16 hours

down,” the stewardesses smile, as they lure us with boxed meals and orange juice. “Relax, and you won’t even miss the sun.”

And we almost don’t. It is peaceful up here, 50,000 feet above the earth. We could almost forget that this is not the way that things are meant to be.

We are trapped in a cage of blackness, while the sun begs to warm our skin and light our lives. If only we would look outside.

It happens on the ground, too, you know? Just in a different way. We go about our lives. We get used to the rush. The darkness. The deceit that we so often encounter. We grow accustomed to the necessity of stretching truth and limiting kindness for our own protection.

We don’t even realize that this is not the way things are meant to be. That we must fight the darkness, not get used to it. That we must strive to pry open the shutters and reveal the light. And that every tiny bit of light chases away an abundance of blackness.

It is akin to an allegory of old, in which a few families are thrown into a pit due to their inability to pay rent. They construct beds and chairs from mud and straw, and pray for freedom. They make do, but pine to see their homes once more. They whisper memories of a better life into the ears of their sons and daughters.

Their

We must fight the darkness, not get used to it

children grow up having never seen trees. Having never felt grass beneath their feet. They grow older thinking that this is life. That the color scheme of the world is brown, black and gray. That the most comfortable bed in the world is one of straw. As these kids grow, they smile pityingly at the delusions of their parents.

And that? That is true exile. When the prisoner does not even know that he is incarcerated.

But there is life beyond the pit, and there is a sun shining outside this plane, and there is a utopian world waiting for us to reveal it.

There awaits a light and a life that is more vibrant than anything we can imagine. We need not get used to the dark realities of the world. We must fight them with light. One action at a time. One more dollar for charity. One more smile for the downhearted. One more visit to a sick friend.

I just peeked outside my window.

It’s brilliant.

On havdalah


On havdalahPosted: 24 Feb 2014 07:59 AM PST

Image002On a recent Saturday at my shul, we paused in an evening program to make havdalah. Afterwards, someone emailed me asking to learn more, pointing out that havdalah was entirely new to them, and perhaps to others as well.

Probably you know we begin Shabbat with a simple ritual: we light candles, bless the fruit of the vine (a symbol of joy and holiness), bless bread (which for most Ashkenazi Jews means challah, though in other parts of the world Jews bless other forms of bread, from tortillas to naan) and in many households also bless our children. Before this ritual, it’s still work-week; after the blessings are spoken and the candles are lit, we’ve entered into the time-apart-from-time which we call Shabbat. Havdalah is the mirror reflection of that; as those blessings began Shabbat, havdalah is how Shabbat ends. The word havdalah means “separation.”

At havdalah, we light a braided candle with many wicks, and hold it aloft for all to see. In the most traditional paradigm no fire is kindled during Shabbat, so the striking of the match to light the havdalah candle is a powerful first sign that Shabbat is ending. We bless the fruit of the vine once more. We bless fragrant spices, and pass them around to inhale their heady scent. We bless God who separates one thing from another: separates light from dark, one community from another, the rest day of Shabbat from the six days of work. And then we extinguish the candle in the wine. With that sputter and hiss, Shabbat comes to its end.

After the candle is extinguished, many of us have the custom of singing “Eliahu HaNavi” and/or its twin song “Miriam HaNeviah” — songs expressing hope for redemption. Then we might sing “Shavua Tov” — “A good week, a week of peace, may gladness reign and joy increase!” And with that, the new week begins.

I love havdalah. It’s one of my favorite rituals in Jewish practice. And it is very much a ritual, not a ceremony. What’s the difference? A ceremony, such as a graduation, celebrates and makes official something which has already occurred — in the case of a graduation, it marks the fact that a student has completed a course of study. (But the course of study is complete already, whether or not the student walks across the stage to receive the diploma.) A ritual, such as havdalah,creates a spiritual change while it is taking place.

I love havdalah because it’s the second bookend, the close-parenthesis, which balances the ritual of making Shabbat in the first place. On Friday night we light candles and bless wine; on Saturday night we bless wine and extinguish a candle. On Friday night we begin something special and sacred, and on Saturday night we bring it to its close. On Friday night we open a door, and on Saturday night we close it. We both start and finish Shabbat with mindfulness, taking a few minutes to be aware of a moment in time when something changes. Havdalah is a hinge, a fulcrum-point, balancing between the Shabbat which is ending and the new week which is beginning. We teeter at the top of the hill for a moment and then tumble down the other side.

Orion-Jupiter-and-clouds-Nov16_2012S-1024x682I love havdalah because it’s so poignant. Usually the ritual is done in semi-darkness; we’re supposed to be able to see three stars in the sky, so night is really falling. The day of Shabbat is coming to its end. And we gather together, sometimes standing in a circle with our arms around each other, and sing these last songs and gaze at this candle and smell the sweet spices which are meant to revive us from the impending departure of that second Shabbat soul. It feels as though we’re coming together to savor the last moments of Shabbat sweetness before they’re gone for the week.

I love havdalah because there are so many beautiful teachings about its additional layers of meaning. For instance: when the braided candle is held aloft, there is a custom of holding up one’s hands to see the light illuminating our fingernails and our skin. The Hebrew word for light (אור) and the Hebrew word for skin (עור) are homonyms: they are both pronounced or. When we hold up our hands before the havdalah flame, we remember the teaching (from the Zohar) that in the world to come we will wear skins made out of light, garments woven out of the brightly shining mitzvot we performed in this life.

But most of all I love havdalah because even without all of the extra teachings and interpretations we can lay on top of it, it works. It makes a difference. Spending five minutes in a darkened room holding that braided candle aloft, making these blessings, breathing in the sweet spices, and then plunging the candle into the wine — it does something. You can feel the change in the energy of the room. Something has ended and something else has begun.
