Israelis never really believed that there would be no more wars. but there was always the hope. the strong hope and prayer that there would be no more wars. A burning hope.
Ayala Weinberg

hope of redemption where we would like to be war free and yes hope
Lawrence Kaplan
42:42
Now Netanyahu says '" Every few years we have to mow the grass."
Madene Shachar

This is one of the most well-known songs in Israel, with a beautiful melody, and is always played on the radio on Memorial Day, when all programs on tv and radio focus on the fallen...no entertainment programs

Judith Usiskin
01:00:16

Michael Kaftor

Heather: good analogy.
Michael Kaftor
01:17:56
ma-apach is just about the same word .. only some think it conforms more to the new grammar of Hebrew
Michael Kaftor
01:18:39
but means exactly the same
Jon Tepper in Tucson
01:19:48
Riffraff: AhSafSuf, in Numbers 11:4 , in our parasha last week!

Kitty Hoffman
01:30:08
I’ve never been a begin follower, but I don’t think he was just being a political opportunist at the time. he was a Zionist of great integrity, and he always stood for the entire people
lib sher
01:30:25
agreed
Heather Silverman
01:30:28
Right
Lawrence Kaplan

enjoy your precious timectogether
Heather Silverman
01:35:29
The words are so powerful. There’s so much richness in our liturgy. To throw it over is a big mistake
Barbara Goldberg
01:35:31
have great weekend!
Rhea Dorn
01:35:35
Shabbat Shalom toda
Aviva Lev-Ari
01:35:59
ENJOY the Kinnert Aviva
Madene Shachar
01:37:10
Actually the kibbutz movement is very connected to the liturgy :)
stanleykay
01:44:37
very relevant today re “real Americans!”
Paul Corwin
01:46:29
reference to “riffraff” reminds me of Hillary Clinton’s reference to supporters of her opponent as “deplorable”...and look what we got!
Madene Shachar
01:47:14
Begin came out with the slogan "the millionaire kibbutzniks" so his hands are not clean either...
Kitty Hoffman
01:48:47
hahaha…No politicians’ hands are clean…but in context that comment made some real political sense…
C tannen
01:49:04
enjoy your Shabbat with your family
Madene Shachar
01:50:05
No, he was being inciteful and it left a terrible stigma on a community that lost many members in the wars, as we saw today, and literally created the map of Israel by settling on the borders that needed to be protected...
Kitty Hoffman
01:52:29
Believe me when I say I have never been a Begin supporter. But there is no doubt that at the time Begin was far more inclusive than the Labour Ashkenazim who had complete social, political, and cultural hegemony.
Jon Tepper in Tucson
01:53:23
I think Begin speech was both a shrewd political move and expression of his personal belief. also prescient: for decades, up unt today , support of Likud by Sephardic community is critical to Likud's success in elections
Kitty Hoffman
01:54:55
LOL My mother is kvelling in heaven…
Lawrence Kaplan
01:55:40
Every politician has to be a political animal and shrewd. Hopefully some are more than that.
Madene Shachar
01:56:04
The only way the Likud was inclusive is when it was politically advantageous. It was Ben Gurion who included the religious parties from the beginning, so who promoted real diversity....
stanleykay
01:57:14
At 5 Eastern tomorrow for Juneteenth, a service by 2 Black Jewish women Rabbis! email me for info stankay282@gmail.com
Kitty Hoffman
01:57:49
This is the wrong platform for partisan conversations. But ben Gurion used the religious for political reasons, to maintain coalitions — and the results on Israeli society are increasingly obvious.
Jon Tepper in Tucson
01:58:27
Lawrence: from your mouth to G-d's ears. So many Presidents today rule show no commitment principles, if they have any to start with.
Lawrence Kaplan
01:59:23
Madeline: You are being overly generous to Ben-Gurion and overly critical of he likkud, at least of Begin.
Kitty Hoffman
02:02:13
Shabbat shalom, Rachel. Enjoy your family!
Madene Shachar
02:02:21
Well when Israel was a welfare state, the country prospered and there were no "tycoons"...today, the Likud has done so much damage to the economical and social infrastructure....and the Prime Minister is now facing three criminal indictments, so...in any case...this is a poetry class...Shabbat Shalom :)
Paul and Mazal Nisner
