Livnot Galilee Fellowship June 2014

27.07.2014
http://www.livnot.org | For 34 years, Livnot U’Lehibanot has been providing unaffiliated young Jewish adults an opportunity to explore Judaism in an open, non-coercive environment. Livnot’s mission is the preservation and cultivation of Jewish identity through a balanced program of hiking the land of Israel, informal Jewish study, and meaningful community service. Our Israel experience programs encourage their participation in the organized Jewish community upon their return to North America.

At the time that Livnot was founded, there were two basic options for an Israel experience: yeshiva or kibbutz ulpan. Today, there is an abundance of programs and providers but studies show little significant increase in participants’ post-trip Jewish communal involvement. The Israel experience can be one of the most powerful tools to build Jewish identity and involvement, but only if it equals a *Jewish* experience. What can we offer this generation of Jews who have become distanced from Jewish life for a variety of reasons, beyond a camel ride and felafel? What can we give them from their rich heritage that they will treasure and keep alive upon their return? How do we show them the beauty and joy of a Jewish community, so that they will seek out connection to their people as they move forward in life?

Shabbat and holidays, Jewish values, learning, and unity are among the treasures that Livnot imparts to our participants. We believe it’s not enough to teach about them, but to learn by doing. Every Galilee Fellowship participant celebrates Purim, Tu B’Shvat, Independence Day, Shabbat and other holidays by creating the holiday experience for themselves. With guidance from our dedicated educational staff, they learn the deeper meaning of these days, perform skits, dress in costumes, braid challah, cook and bake, sing, dance, and bring the holidays alive together in a personally meaningful way. They learn together and from each other. They connect with themselves and the community through service. Livnot provides the tools to the participant to take this experience home.

Jewish Culture Festival gives a new rythym to centuries-old culture , Cracow 2014

20.07.2014
Krakow’s Jewish Culture Festival joins centuries of Jewish tradition in one of Poland’s oldest cities with the newest trends in music and culture. The 24th edition of the festival features nearly 300 events held over 10 days and takes a more modern approach to promoting and celebrating the city’s Jewish heritage.

In previous years, the festival’s themes went far into history and Klezmer music dominated on the main square of Krakow’s historical Jewish district, Kazimierz.

This year DJ’s from Israel play to an international audience on the banks of the Vistula river and events are held all over town. The city’s historical background is preserved, but members of the younger generation want to discover more.

Shocking scenes as 150 Jewish men go on rampage in Paris streets and clash!!!

Shocking scenes as 150 Jewish men go on rampage in Paris streets and clash with pro-Palestinian demonstrators

A group of 150 Jewish men were seen brandishing iron bars and cans of pepper spray as they clashed with Pro-Palestinian demonstrators in Paris.

Video footage of the clashes show the group chanting racist slogans as they roamed the streets.

It came as President Francois Hollande warned that he did not want to see ‘the Israeli-Palestinian conflict imported into France’.

French Jewish groups have complained about an increase in anti-Semitism in recent months, with many accusing Muslim youths of targeting them.

But a video shot close to the Place de la Bastille on Sunday, and verified by police before being posted on YouTube, appears to show pro-Israel groups are also actively involved in clashes.

In Paris, CRS riot police did not arrest any of the group, thought to be linked to the Jewish Defence League, despite them openly fighting in broad daylight.

In the video, those amongst the group can be heard chanting ‘**** you Palestine’ as they smash up chairs and metal tables to be used as missiles

The men are armed with gas canisters, pepper spray, metal bars and wooden sticks and some wear crash helmets.

The video shows the men running towards pro-Palestinian demonstrators, before skirmishes break out.

Six pro-Palestinian demonstrators were arrested on Sunday, accused of trying to break into two Paris synagogues. Two Jewish men were reportedly injured.

I AM A JEW — Introduction

29.01.2013
The American Jewish pre-teen considers their Bar or Bat Mitzvah to be various things. For some it is the end of religious schooling. For others it is the task of learning a Torah portion. For many, it’s plans for a big party. And while formal Jewish education may indeed conclude at the age of 13, a young person’s understanding and appreciation of their roles as Modern Jews has only just begun to develop. As these perceptive ‘tweens’ approach the often-confusing stages of adolescence, their Judaism can continue to be an integral source of dignity and strength in their lives. The time for answering their questions about Judaism will soon be over. The opportunity to build an intellectual foundation of progressive Jewish pride is now.

The goal of the film ‘I Am A Jew’ is not to teach students ‘how to be a Jew’, but rather how to think about and practice Judaism in a proud new way. Only then will they understand and appreciate what it means to say, “I Am A Jew.”

BORIS DORFMAN OFFICIAL TRAILER /SHORT/

A radically Yiddish Film: Boris Dorfman – A Mentsh
by Uwe & Gabriela von Seltmann
© Apfelstrudel Media Berlin/ Stowarzyszenie Film Kraków

“A Mentsh” is a movie shot entirely in the Yiddish language. It’s set in the former multinational city of Lviv, Ukraine, and the first part of a planned Yiddish trilogy (Lviv, Tel Aviv,New York). Lviv was a centre of Jewish life for more than 600 years. During World War II this special culture was destroyed. 75 years after the beginning of the war, Boris Dorfman takes us on an oneiric trip to all the places of horror and hope reflecting the Jewish history. The 90-year-old activist is virtually the last one in town still speaking the almost extinct language of Yiddish – he is like a living relic of the past and a fighter against oblivion. While remembering the past, he lives in the present and tries to prepare the people for the future — he is “a mentsh”, someone full of love and empathy.

Alfred Schnittke April 6 1989 Moscow.jpgAlfred Schnittke (Russian: Альфре́д Га́рриевич Шни́ткеAl’fred Garrievič Šnitke; November 24, 1934 – August 3, 1998) was a Sovietand Russian composer. Schnittke’s early music shows the strong influence of Dmitri Shostakovich. He developed a polystylistic technique in works such as the epic First Symphony (1969–1972) and First Concerto Grosso (1977). In the 1980s, Schnittke’s music began to become more widely known abroad with the publication of his Second (1980) and Third (1983) String Quartets and the String Trio (1985); the ballet Peer Gynt (1985–1987); the Third (1981), Fourth (1984), and Fifth (1988) Symphonies; and the Viola (1985) and 1st Cello (1985–1986) Concertos. As his health deteriorated, Schnittke’s music started to abandon much of the extroversion of his polystylism and retreated into a more withdrawn, bleak style.Schnittke’s father, Harry Viktorovich Schnittke (1914–1975, rus.), was Jewish and born in Frankfurt.[1] He moved to the USSR in 1927 and worked as a journalist and translatorfrom the Russian language into German. His mother, Maria Iosifovna Schnittke (née Vogel, 1910–1972), was a Volga German born in Russia. Schnittke’s paternal grandmother, Tea Abramovna Katz (1889–1970), was a philologist, translator, and editor of German-language literature. Source Wikipedia

Encounters with the Past: Remembering the `Bygone’ in Israeli Culture: Part 1-3

02.07.2014
The University of Washington’s 34th Annual Samuel and Althea Stroum Lectures in Jewish Studies featured Professor Yael Zerubavel, director of The Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life at Rutgers University. Zerubavel concludes the three-part series, Encounters with the Past: Remembering the “Bygone” in Israeli Culture, by looking at the new commemorations of Israel’s pioneering period, which have transformed into an “old past.” These changes illuminate profound transformations in contemporary Israel and Israelis’ understanding of their identities as well as their pasts.

Today in Israel, children and teens in bomb shelters are profoundly affected by the continual Hamas bombardment. They in particular need emotional and physical support right away. The OU is providing that assistance and you can help now, by supporting the Orthodox Union’s Israel Emergency Fund. 100% of proceeds go directly to help people in need.The OU Israel team has programs currently in action across the country. Whether it’s offering respite to traumatized children and teens in the south with day trips to northern Israel away from the barrage of rockets, providing called-up IDF reservists with food and artwork from children, or providing psychological services in towns like Sderot, Beit Shemesh and Ofakim, your support provides direct assistance during this period of uncertainty.

In the coming days OU Israel’s efforts will expand to other towns and cities in need and so we ask for help in ensuring their success.

Fasting today with Jews and Muslims for peace

Fasting today with Jews and Muslims for peacePosted: 15 Jul 2014 07:04 AM PDT

10504985_10154414238775171_7317168910845165076_oI don’t usually fast on the 17th of Tamuz.

For that matter, I didn’t even take on the practice of fasting for Tisha b’Av until a few years ago. (See This year’s wrestle with Tisha b’Av, 2011.) I didn’t grow up observing the minor fasts, and I’ve never taken them on as a practice.

Instead I’ve tended toward finding other ways of understanding 17th Tammuz. Instead of focusing on the breach of Jerusalem’s walls 2,586 years ago, I ponder breaches in the emotional walls which keep us safe, or the internal and interpersonal walls which need to come down in order for genuine connections to form.

But this year there is so much trauma and tragedy in Israel and Palestine, so much grief and destruction and fear happening right now, that I am fasting today and I am dedicating my fast to peace, compassion and kindness in that beloved corner of our world where so many people are suffering.

This was not my idea. Across Israel and Palestine, groups of Jews and Muslims are consciously choosing to fast on this day in solidarity with one another as what was initially called a Hunger Strike Against Violence, and has become part of an initiative called בוחרים בחיים / اختيار الحياة / Choose Life. The idea came from Eliaz Cohen, an Israeli Jew who lives in Gush Etzion, and Ali Abu Awwad, a Palestinian Muslim who lives in Beit Ummar, north of Khalil (Hebron). Cohen is a poet and a self-identified second-generation “settler kid” who supports the idea of one homeland for two peoples. Abu Awwad is founder of Al Tariq (The Way), which teaches Palestinians principles of nonviolent resistance.

(For more, see the front-page story in yesterday’s Times of IsraelAided by calendar, Jews and Arabs Unite in Joint Fast: West Bank activists organize Choose Life, a shared initiative to combat political violence and promote coexistence.)

ChooselifeprayerThough the fast originated in the Middle East, it has spread around the globe. Joint Jewish-Muslim fasts (and dual-faith study sessions and communal joint iftar / break-the-fast meals) are taking place not only in Israel and Palestine but also around the United States, in various locations around Europe, even in Kuwait. (For more information, you can check out the Choose Life FB page; for English speakers, I recommend the parallel site Fast for Peace, which arose independently but is very much the same.)

What does abstaining from food and drink for a day actually accomplish? I know that it won’t change the external realities on the ground. But communal fasting is a very old Jewish way of connecting with others in grief and in hope. I hope that the fast will make an impact on we who are participating in it, and will inspire us to take action to bring peace and healing. And perhaps the fast will bring some hope to those who hear or read about it, and will inspire them to take action, too. Here’s something written by Rabbi Jill Jacobs at T’ruah:

As Jews, we know that fasting is one of our tradition’s main expressions of a public crisis. While most of us don’t believe that God will literally heed our fast and come to intervene, we nevertheless yearn for a way to express our sorrow and to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters. Publicly embracing an interfaith  spiritual action is a small step, but it is better than privately wringing our hands and beating our breasts.

I know from my other experiences of religious fasting (on Yom Kippur, which I’ve done almost every year since I became bat mitzvah, and on Tisha b’Av in more recent years) that a religious fast entails a kind of spiritual journey. I was in one spiritual / emotional place when the fast began this morning; I expect that I will be in a different place by the time it is over. I won’t know where the journey is going to take me until I get there.

The original call to fast for peace arises out of the violence, fear, and heartbreak happening in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza right now. There’s a natural commonality in the fact that both Jewish and the Muslim communities will be fasting today from sunup to sundown. I am glad to join Jews and Muslims around the world in dedicating our fast to praying for an end to the violence in the Middle East.

I also find myself returning to prayers for kindness and compassion, both in those wartorn places and in the rest of this world. The violence isn’t happening on the ground where I live, but the hatred and mistrust which have ousted kindness and compassion from the hearts of those who commit that violence — that hatred and mistrust are everywhere.

Fastforpeace-01My online friend Lee Weissman, who blogs and tweets under the moniker Jihadi Jew, recently posted that he can no longer engage in conversations about Israel and Palestine via social media because the vitriol is so great that he has given up that public discourse. I understand the impulse. The rhetoric I’ve been seeing (from all “sides”) has been bringing me to the brink of panic attacksbecause I am so emotionally invested that my heart feels bruised by every instance of violence, every angry comment, every insistence that “they” deserve whatever they get. If we can’t collectively transcend that kind of thinking, I don’t see how the situation will ever improve.

17 Tamuz is the day when the Jewish community remembers the breach of Jerusalem’s city walls by the Babylonian army in 586 BCE. That breach was the first damage to the city’s integrity. Three weeks later, the Babylonian army destroyed the Temple and exiled the Jews. This year what is broken on 17 Tamuz is my heart. I’ve always been a “sensitive soul,” moved by strong emotion (both my own feelings, and those expressed by those around me). And I was in Israel and the West Bank only a few months ago, which rekindled my feeling of connection with that land and with its peoples. Maybe these are the reasons why this year the renewed violence and bloodshed there are so emotionally and spiritually devastating to me.

In the traditional Jewish understanding, a public communal fast can be a tool of teshuvah / turning-toward-God, an expression of grief and mourning, and/or an opportunity for supplication and pleading with God. My fast against violence today aims to be all three of these. I seek to make teshuvah for the ways I’ve been complicit in allowing violence to continue. I grieve every single death in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, most especially those of children. And I ask God with all my heart, all my soul, and all my might to help us build a different world, a world of connection and compassion and peace. Please, God, please, God, please.

I’ll close this post with a prayer written by Sheikh Ibtisam Mahamid and Rabbi Tamar Elad-Appelbaum, distributed by the Choose Life folks along with prayers and scriptural quotations for study in Hebrew, Arabic, and English. They write:

God of Life
Who heals the broken hearted and binds up their wounds

May it be your will to hear the prayer of mothers
For you did not create us to kill each other
Nor to live in fear, anger or hatred in your world
But rather you have created us so we can grant permission to one another to sanctify
Your name of Life, your name of Peace in this world.

For these things I weep, my eye, my eye runs down with water
For our children crying at nights,
For parents holding their children with despair and darkness in their hearts
For a gate that is closing and who will open it while day has not yet dawned.

And with my tears and prayers which I pray
And with the tears of all women who deeply feel the pain of these difficult days
I raise my hands to you please God have mercy on us
Hear our voice that we shall not despair
That we shall see life in each other,
That we shall have mercy for each other,
That we shall have pity on each other,
That we shall hope for each other

And we shall write our lives in the book of Life
For your sake God of Life
Let us choose Life.

For you are Peace, your world is Peace and all that is yours is Peace,
And so shall be your will and let us say Amen.

Amen.

A prayer in remembrance – now in Hebrew

A prayer in remembrance – now in HebrewPosted: 14 Jul 2014 08:26 AM PDT

Not long ago I posted a prayer co-written with Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb in remembrance of Naftali Fraenkel, Gilad Sha’ar, Eyal Yifrah, and Muhammad Hussein Abu Khdeir. (It’s here: A prayer in remembrance.)

Rabbi Lila Veissid, who serves Kibbutz Ha-Ma’apil in central Israel,  has translated that prayer into Hebrew. With her gracious permission, her translation is reprinted here.

 

תפילת זיכרון
מאת הרבה רחל ברנבלט
והרבה לין גוטליב

 

יהי רצון שזכרם של בנינו
שנהרגו בשל שנאה חסרת פשר
יהיה לברכה.

יהי רצון שרוחם תעלה
ותתנחם בחיבוקה החם
והאימהי של אלוהים.

יהי רצון שילדינו היקרים יהיו בטוחים מכל צרה.
יהי רצון שכל הילדים יהיו ילדינו.
יהי רצון שנגן על כל ההורים מן השכול.

יהי רצון שלבבנו ולבבם של בני עמנו
יירפא במהרה בימינו
מפצעי העבר וההווה.

יהי רצון שכל הורה אבֵל ימצא ניחומים.
יהי רצון שנזכה לראות את היום
שבו לא יהיו עוד הורים אבֵלים
(You can read the prayer in English at the original post: A prayer in remembrance, July 3 2014.)

Poetry and prayer are all I’ve gotPosted: 13 Jul 2014 04:44 AM PDT

I have been watching the news (and reading blog posts and tweets and Facebook updates) out of Israel and the Palestinian territories with a sense of unbearable heartbreak. It brings me to the brink of something like a panic attack: my chest tightening, my throat choked with tears, the embodied feeling that the grief will wash me away altogether. And I am aware that those who live there are experiencing something far more powerful.

The only thing which brings any comfort is poetry and prayer. Bethlehem Blogger posted A prayer in times of violence,which though it is explicitly Christian speaks to me nonetheless. Wendell Berry’s poem The peace of wild things speaks right to my heart. I daven the oseh shalom blessing — “may the One Who makes peace in the high heavens make peace also for us” — with particular fervor.

If there are prayers or poems which bring you comfort at times like these, please feel free to share them in the comments so that other readers (and I) can benefit from them.

I wrote a prayer in 2012 called Prayer for the Children of Abraham / Ibrahim, which begins:

For every aspiring ballerina huddled
scared in a basement bomb shelter

For every toddler in his mother’s arms
    behind rubble of concrete and rebar

For every child who’s learned to distinguish
“our” bombs from “their” bombs by sound…

 

I hate that it is once again resonant. I yearn for the day when this prayer will look outdated and ridiculous — when the children of our children, running across this prayer in some shred of their grandparents’ generation, will say “I can’t believe that war went on for so long.” Please, God, may the day come speedily and soon.

“We count about 10,000 to 12,000 Jews who are serving in our Army” – General Samuel Cooper

“We were not fighting for the perpetuation of slavery, but for the principles of States Rights and Free Trade, and in defense of our homes which were being ruthlessly invaded.” – Moses Jacob Ezekiel

“I am still a living witness and can, from my own memory, give you many names of gallant Jewish soldiers of the confederate Army. I had ample opportunity to see and to know. Many a wounded Jew have I met in the hospitals of Richmond and administered to his wants, and many a Jewish soldier have I seen walking on his crutch or having his arm in a sling, traveling to and from his command during the war. And I know further that it was simply a sense of loyalty to their homes and their neighbors that prompted them to fight for the South. If not, they could readily have left this country at any time as I myself could have done, had I so chosen. But love for our adopted country kept us here and we offered all we had in its behalf.” – Joseph Goldsmith 1895

Steinberg’s satiric, literate and defiantly Jewish material landed him on Nixon’s enemies list and on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show couch more than 100 times (second only to Bob Hope). Today, Steinberg is a sought after comedy director.

Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno called her passing a great loss “for all of humanity”. He praised her as someone who represented “civic conscience, culture and the spirit of research”.

Rita Levi Montalcini.jpgRita Levi-Montalcini (Italian pronunciation: [ˈrita ˈlɛvi montalˈtʃini]; 22 April 1909 – 30 December 2012) was an Italian neurologist who, together with colleague Stanley Cohen, received the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of nerve growth factor (NGF).[1] Also, from 2001, until her death, she served in the Italian Senate as a Senator for Life.[2]

Rita Levi-Montalcini had been the oldest living Nobel laureate and the first ever to reach a 100th birthday.[3] On 22 April 2009, she was feted with a 100th birthday party at Rome’s city hall.[4][5] 

Early life and education

Born on 22 April 1909 at Turin[6][7] to a wealthy Italian Jewish family,[8] she and her twin sister Paola were the youngest of four children. Her parents were Adamo Levi, an electrical engineer and mathematician, and Adele Montalcini, a painter.[6] Source:Wikipedia

Dorothy Goldstone, a writer and Yiddish Book Center volunteer, explains how a course in modern Jewish history challenged the historical narrative of Sinai and the Holocaust that she’d been taught in Hebrew School, galvanized her interest in Jewish studies and changed her life path to a career in Jewish historical fiction.

A Tribute To Our Jewish Confederate Heroes
By: Heritage Not Hate Productions

“We count about 10,000 to 12,000 Jews who are serving in our Army” – General Samuel Cooper

“We were not fighting for the perpetuation of slavery, but for the principles of States Rights and Free Trade, and in defense of our homes which were being ruthlessly invaded.” – Moses Jacob Ezekiel

“I am still a living witness and can, from my own memory, give you many names of gallant Jewish soldiers of the confederate Army. I had ample opportunity to see and to know. Many a wounded Jew have I met in the hospitals of Richmond and administered to his wants, and many a Jewish soldier have I seen walking on his crutch or having his arm in a sling, traveling to and from his command during the war. And I know further that it was simply a sense of loyalty to their homes and their neighbors that prompted them to fight for the South. If not, they could readily have left this country at any time as I myself could have done, had I so chosen. But love for our adopted country kept us here and we offered all we had in its behalf.” – Joseph Goldsmith 1895

Jewish History Lecture Series by Rabbi Dovid Katz

The National Center for Jewish Film.

25.03.2014
Jerry Seinfeld, Larry David, Dave Foley, and Martin Short contribute to this hilarious must-see documentary. David Steinberg—aptly described as a cross between Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce—took the comedy world by storm in the 1960s. Steinberg’s satiric, literate and defiantly Jewish material landed him on Nixon’s enemies list and on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show couch more than 100 times (second only to Bob Hope). Today, Steinberg is a sought after comedy director.
