Israeli Literature - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Can everyone please turn off your video? It will improve the sound quality!!
Just putting up my email again for anyone interested in being part of a group sharing a sponsorship of a session.
Yes, please turn off video. Some of us still have less than ideal audio, and it helps immensely. Thanks.
Sound is terrible. Can the moderator ask Rachel to ask everyone to shut off their video?
EVERYONE TURN OFF YOUR VIDEO!!
sounds as usual to me. Strange
My sound is also fine.
Sound is fine to me; not everyone is having a problem
my sound is fine
turn off videos
Sound is fine./
Happy for those whose sound is good. it’s not the case for everyone. Please turn off your video for our sake. Thanks.
It will help others if you turn off your video, EVEN if your own sound is fine.
it is reverberating. It is easy to turn off your video. On an iPad, go to the top of the screen. The video camera icon is the second from the left. Touch it and a line will appear, indicating that your video is off.
Can everyone please MUTE -- no one should be unmuted except Rachel
My hunch is that the same people who are not muted or who are still on video are not looking at the chat function.
yes, they may not know how to mute
Thanks, Mona. So frustrating!
This information is so inspiring.
This great photograph is on display in the Palmach Museum.
And some think prose is not as dense or allusive as poetry!
Thank you Rachel.
I have always loved Call It Sleep. It's so nice to be validated by a scholar. :-)
One of my very favorite books from my youth. You don’t hear about it much anymore...
I recalled at Pesach one of my favorite scenes in the book. A little boy is down in the street burning his family's chametz and is confronted by an Irish policeman walking his beat and wanting to know what the boy is doing.
It's a wonderful book. For those of you in the Boston area, it's available through the Minuteman Library Network -- assuming libraries open some day.
Continues in theme and cadence to parashat Lech Lecha
All these chats are very distracting.

How do we join Rachel’s other classes, Charlie?
Thank you Rachel. I had a good laugh because I just got the joke on myself after 40 years or so. In the 1980s I visited Israel, and I was so proud of my Ulpan Hebrew. And I remember clearly whenever I needed to ask someone for directions, I would begin "Adoni, ….
