    Visiting Israel and Jordan

    I really want to go to Japan and South Korea (70%) but 30% of me would prefer to visit Israel and Jordan because the climate is better and the food is superior. What is there to do there ? Amman, Petra and Jerusalem definitely sound interesting but I was told Tel Aviv is overpriced.

    The Importance of Correct/Accurate Terminology in Discussing Torah/Yahaduth

    I plan on making this into a reference thread. That way I don't have to repeat the same information or better yet allow me to refer others to this. The first point I would like to make is about the English term "Hebrew" and how it can be confused some incorrect "westernized" concepts. There was...

    Israeli Memorial Day 2022

    Today is the Israeli Memorial Day (Yom HaZikaron in Hebrew) when we remember all those who have fallen during military service or during terror attacks. Memorial Day in Israel is a big deal. I think much more so than in the West. Few are the people here who don't have any personal ties to people...

    Mudbricks and Murmurs

    *If you don't get the reference, clearly you need to brush up on your Harry Potter lore. As it is written: "Clearly, fame isn't everything" (Kai Petraeus Philisophus) Today I took part in an archeological survey in the Sharon region of Israel, in a place called Tel al-Mukhmar. The idea of the...

    I saw Armageddon...

    I mean, we visited Megiddo yesterday (and Beit She'an and Tel Rechov)...:p There were some Christian tourists there as well. Hey, everyone wants a piece of doomsday, right? Some pictures: A side-entrance and a former spring that may have been used by the locals: Part of the southern area...

    Journal post no. 2

    I couldn't think of a creative title. I have failed you all. Anyway, like the title says, this is in Journals, and I don't post here much (this is only the second time I've made a journal entry-thread here, I think). Just wanted to share some thoughts. This is about politics and archeology, but...

    Israel as Jesus and as Job, Resurrection Equal to Repentance

    The first account of Israel's resurrection is in the prophet Ezekiel. "Then he said to me: "Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, 'Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.' Therefore prophesy and say to them: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: My...

    Do Torath Mosheh and Orthodox Jews know who is a Jew, according to Hebrew Tanakh?

    Recently, a challenge has been made about whether or not it is possible to identify who is really a Jew. The reality is that among Torath Mosheh and Orthodox Jews there has never been a problem in identifying who is a Jew. The reason is very simply. The definition of such was first provided by...

    Is it true that Torath Mosheh/Orthodox Jews think halakha is complete and unalterable?

    In order to answer this question, the first consideration would be "What is halakha?" The hebrew term (הלכה) comes from the Hebrew root (ה-ל-ך) meaning "walking; moving towards a goal." Thus, halakha is defined as the process of practice, tradition, rulings, etc. that relates to how Torath...

    Why did the Jews move to Israel/Palestine in 1882 ?

    I thought the creation of Israel was due to the Holocaust and the Jews having somewhere safe to live but the Jews started moving to Palestine in 1882 . I know there was a partition plan in 1920 to seperate Jordan from Palestine and then further partition under the Peel proposal. Why did the...

    Violence in mixed Israeli cities

    Israeli graphic artist Or Reichert put out some infographics comparing the Jewish to Arab violence with the Arab to Jewish violence of the last week in Israel. I took the liberty of translating one of them into English: Some food for thought for those who believe that the violence on both...

    Best Middle East combinations?

    My favourite vacation I ever took was Dubai and Sharjah in 2004. One day I would like to see Abu Dhabi and maybe Dubai again. What about doing Jordan and Israel together ? Which Iranic countries are safe to visit because Afganistan is not stable and Iran has unfairly imprisoned Nazanin Zaghari...

    Belated Happy Yom Yerushalayim

    Judaism DIR Happy Yom Yerushalayim, everyone! It's still fine to celebrate the tremendous miracle Hashem did for us. After all, the war lasted 6 days. :) In fact, on the day after Yom Yerushalayim, which is today, the people of Chevron celebrate Yom Chevron, in commemoration of the freeing of...
