All three are set completely or mostly in Jerusalem, a change from much of what Americans have seen, since in the past, almost all Israeli movies took place in and around Tel Aviv. Past Life deals with how Israelis deal with the Holocaust, sexism in the Israeli music establishment and Israeli politics in The Wedding Plan, which opened in New York on May 12, tells the story of Michal Noa Koler , a young woman who became ultra-Orthodox as an adult and longs to get married. She decides that since the hall is paid for, she will find a groom in three weeks and she embarks on a period of frantic dating. One man she meets outside the dating realm, Yos Oz Zehavi , a secular Israeli pop singer exploring his spiritual side, starts talking to her on a pilgrimage to Uman, the birthplace of Rabbi Nahman, in the Ukraine. Will casual US viewers understand why they are there? A charismatic young rabbi, who is on the fringes of ultra-Orthodoxy, convinces the men to rebuild the synagogue without a section for the women, effectively banishing all the females in this community from public life. The film finds gentle comedy in how the women stage a protest to reclaim their place at the heart of their community.

Neoconservatism as a Jewish Movement Kevin MacDonald Over the last year, there has been a torrent of articles on neoconservatism raising usually implicitly some difficult issues: Are neoconservatives different from other conservatives? Is neoconservatism a Jewish movement?

Portion of the Temple Scroll , one of the Dead Sea Scrolls written during the Second Temple period With successive Persian rule , the autonomous province Yehud Medinata was gradually developing back into urban society, largely dominated by Judeans. The Greek conquests largely skipped the region without any resistance or interest. Incorporated into Ptolemaic and finally Seleucid empires, the southern Levant was heavily hellenized , building the tensions between Judeans and Greeks.
The conflict erupted in BCE with the Maccabean Revolt , which succeeded in establishing an independent Hasmonean Kingdom in Judah, which later expanded over much of modern Israel, as the Seleucids gradually lost control in the region. The struggle between pro-Roman and pro-Parthian factions in Judea eventually led to the installation of Herod the Great and consolidation of the Herodian kingdom as a vassal Judean state of Rome. With the decline of the Herodian dynasty , Judea, transformed into a Roman province , became the site of a violent struggle of Jews against Greco-Romans, culminating in the Jewish—Roman wars , ending in wide-scale destruction, expulsions, and genocide.

The leaders expected that the United States would help them split the territorial difference, as Clinton had in
AP Berlin bureau chief Louis P. Lochner, somewhere in Germany, stands next to a Nazi soldier seated in a piece of artillery. A report and new counter-report on this subject offer a few striking lessons—not just for students of history but for anyone concerned with the way news coverage shapes our perception right now. In the Nazi years, according to Scharnberg, the AP was selling German images in the United States and selling images from the United States in Germany, allowing photographs of American Jews and others to be used in some of the vilest racial propaganda produced by the Nazi state.
What did the AP decide to cover, and how? While claiming to be covering Germany, the historian argued, the AP photo operation was, in fact, engaged in an illusion of coverage crafted in partnership with the Nazi regime. Instead of reporting on the reality of life under the regime, the AP—blinded and hobbled by its accommodations and relationships—helped obscure what was actually happening inside Germany and the way the Nazis waged war.

Now, he’s building a site named after one of the most unpopular presidents in US history.
David Goss was at a Southern California bar on election night , scribbling down ideas to rename TrumpSingles. Since Donald Trump was about to lose the presidential election, Goss decided his site needed a new figurehead. Or at least a new name. He considered Wealthy Person Dating, but that didn’t really roll off the tongue. By day’s end, though, he received a news alert announcing that Trump had unexpectedly won the election.
After that, people started flooding TrumpSingles. Turns out it was the right name after all. The week before Inauguration Day in January, Goss counted 18, active people on his site, more than twice how many were using it on election night.

October 29, at 4: A report by the United Nations lists around methods of torture. Regardless of the number, all these reports indicate a grave level of violations perpetrated against Palestinians following their arrest. Some believe that psychological torture is less harmful than physical torture, but the mental scars left by both can leave prisoners traumatised long after their release. This is a premeditated and staged scenario that changes according to the case of the detainee and the nature of their file.
Investigators alternate and play various roles assigned in advance to each investigator. These methods demonstrate the barbarism of the occupation and its lack of respect for basic standards of human rights, he stated. He also explained that these methods range between severe beatings, putting prisoners under cold water followed by hot water, cuffing or restraining them with their arms behind them and then tying them to a door or window for long periods of time, often lasting hours.
Prisoners are also made to sit on chairs and beaten with sticks until they lose consciousness. These beatings may target sensitive areas of their bodies which have the potential to leave long-term negative effects, sometimes leading to chronic diseases. Israeli intelligence bases their torture of detainees on the so-called secret guidelines that were approved in , after the outbreak of the first Intifada.
This gives a legal cover to the torture practiced by Israeli intelligence agents. In the last 10 years, interrogators have decreased their use of torture, moving away from physical torture and instead used harsh psychological methods that can leave enduring scars, while continuing to use direct physical torture of varying degrees.

A peacock adorns this 5-meter long Greek inscription naming the archbishop of Tyre found west of the Sea of Galilee in the summer of in an excavation co-directed by historian Jacob Ashkenazi and archaeologist Mordechai Aviam. Unusual in a patriarchal society, the donor Sausann is credited in the inscription independently of any spouse or male guardian. This Sausann is thought to have been a woman of some standing, perhaps following in the footsteps of her presumed namesake, the female disciple Susannah, who was among the women named in Luke 8: This too contributed to the inordinate number of women in the church, particularly upper-class women.

Share Thirty-five nations abstained and 21 stayed away from the vote. The United States is an important source of assistance to Guatemala, and Trump had threatened to cut off financial aid to countries that voted in favor of the UN resolution. Trump upended decades of US policy with his December 6 announcement that he was recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its capital, while the Palestinians claim the city’s eastern sector, which was captured by Israel in and is home to sensitive religious sites. Many governments have long said that the fate of Jerusalem must be resolved through negotiations. Trump’s announcement has set off weeks of clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces that have left 12 Palestinians dead.
