I watched the video, "Session 1 - Four Characteristics of Jewish History." It was a great video film which highlighted some unique features in the history of the Jews. These characteristics include universal relevance, the riddle of how Jews survived the civilized human history, how Jewish history is a world history, because Jews are scattered all over the world, and how Jewish history is a deep history with purpose and destiny. It changed my Jewish identity in terms of how important and relevant the Jewish people really are. Link: http://goldharschool.com/session-1-the-four-unique-features-to-jewish-history/
The title of the film was after me: the story of Yoni Netanyahu. I learned how hard it really is to be obliged to join the army at the age of 18. I also learned the influence one person has on many others simply by being brave.
אני שאלתי את מנדי שהוא הרב במושב שלי 10 שאלות על יהדות , פגשתי אותו בשבת חתן.
אני חושב שנחשפתי לעוד צדדים של היהדות ואני מבין יותר טוב את היהדות
I watched the introduction to Moore. http://www.projectsinai.org/index.php/en/video/99/what-is-meor MEOR is an organization that enables young people (especially on campuses, but also outside college) to engage their Jews in a community through close interactions, relationships , And learning. The video inspired me to look at this organization, and at least to make more effort to reach my community and build meaningful relationships.
I'm really proud of Israel for inventing such a great gadget which can help you store your file and have them with you where you have it whenever you need them!
My favorite Jewish prayer should be the Shema. The meaning of the prayer itself is not so strong. I think the real reason I find this prayer to be so powerful is that it connects Jews all over the world. As one of the most well-known prayers, it is possible to find almost every Jewish person who can recite it. Since Judaism is a community-based religion, I think that the power of this prayer to connect the community to the world is enormous. Not to mention how significant people find this prayer to be. The soldiers say that before they pass, religious people say it by the Wall, and we say it almost every time we come together and pray. It is an amazingly special Jewish prayer, the one I most associate with.
I watched a video entitled "Israeli Apartheid Week, What to Do?" It can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjFB2Z4YId4. I was attracted to the video because I do not know much about the Apartheid Week. Fortunately, it did not look to my college campus (or if I did, I certainly was not aware of it). It is frightening to recognize the reality that there are people who will spread lies and hate Israel. As Eliot Matthias discusses the film, there is no way to eliminate anti-Semitism. But we can make every effort to reach individuals and groups to make sure they are informed of the facts.
https://youtu.be/lyVkCYPwQtw Mr. Harari discusses the balance between procrastination and perfectionism in this video. He makes it clear that perfectionism can not be applied to every aspect of life. Instead it suggests that we strive "good enough" and remain open to criticism. Basically it says that in business, we tend to fear negative feedback. It challenges us not to miss out on opportunities simply because we are not sure if something is ready for distribution. I think he has a good point. Perfection is what we strive for, but if we let perfection be "the end of all", then we find ourselves slaves to our fears and worries. Your personal trust is the best acceptable and can go a long way. I hope I can redesign this idea the way I prepare for the exams.
Die Trauung, 1866 (The Wedding) Artist: Moritz Daniel Oppenheim. I chose this piece because it is one of the most beautiful moments in the life of a Jew. You can see how special the ceremony was, and especially at that time in Germany when the Jews were exposed to christianty on a daily basis. I think the artist was going to show how unique the Jewish wedding is, and how beautiful it is. So that the Jews would be proud of what they were.
נפגשנו ישראלים ואמריקאים שנשארו בארץ לאחר הטיול בבר בתל אביב . היה כיף מאוד ודברנו בעיקר על החוויה של הטיול
I went to Yad Vashem in Israel during my birthright experience. It was very exciting as during my time there I entered the Hall of Names and found that this was the moment that made him feel the most real. I have no shame to say that it moved me to tears. Moreover, I learned about all the statistics, but also the emotions that really caused the point. Absolutely inconceivable.
The video reminded me of the army period, the difficulties I faced and the end of my compulsory service and became a reserve soldier. There are people for whom this is self-evident, but the transition from civilian to soldier is a very significant change for most people.
This story is amazing. The song she recites is simply beautiful and remarkably suited to the situation. I'm also surprised that the two were able to keep in touch enough to get married because he was still fighting a war and most likely she went to any hospital for recovery, so their immediate devotion to each other is very interesting to me.
Wars between the Jews and the Romans: War 66-70 CE by Yona Landring http://www.livius.org/ja-jn/jewish_wars/jwar03.html We have also discussed the first reasons for the Judeo-Roman wars, while other articles that I mentioned claimed that this was a leader The article presents an alternative perspective: it was the culmination of decades of unfair taxation that caused poverty among Jewish farmers, and I found this article relevant because the Judeo-Roman war led to the Jewish Diaspora.
Although I have learned most of it in high school, to see it again, in another context is very refreshing. The Zionist movements had the greatest role in the progress of the establishment of the State of Israel, and 120 years after the First Zionist Congress there is still a great debate on the future of this country
Kosher to me is an amazing app that allows me to find kosher food in the area. I like it because in the past I was having trouble finding good kosher places to eat. I recommend this to all my friends.

Immigrate to Israel and educate Diaspora Jews on the importance of Israel to the Jewish people. Read an article on the NBN Blogger and write a comment to the author about your relationship to Israel.
Today money takes up a significant place nowadays, all our lives revolve around money and that's why we do not relate or emphasize the things that really matter to us in life so it's hard for us to be happy
I chose to cook shakshuka. I remember that I tried this dish in Israel while I was on the premiere and I loved it. Unnamed: I could not wait to make it at home! It was very easy.
I downloaded jswipe to get to know Jews in other countries while hiking and it was very nice, I would recommend to members to use it as well
I chose the Magen David (Star of David) network that generations of generations have seen as a Jewish symbol and it has accompanied the Jewish people throughout history and Israel decided to have a Star of David in its flag.
I decided to see why being a Jew http://www.simpletoremember.com/media/a/why-be-jewish-video/ I felt I could relate to the issue and the question posed and listening to the video I refer to what the exhibitor said. This was a good review of the Torah. A short story of monotheism. I'm not sure the podcast helped clarify anything but make me really think about things in greater detail; Such as, what makes me a Jew and why? I have no answer to that. I would listen to another podcast by this presenter. He was good.
I enjoyed learning more about the details of the Zionist movement. Israel has struggled to remain a state and they continue to believe in their cause and fight for the Jewish people. After the visit to Israel I understand why it matters to them
I learned a few new words in Hebrew, and hope to use this application frequently. I recommend that my friends use the application
I visited the Doris Butchers restaurant and ordered steak and salad. Recommend to go eat a very delicious name
The company I studied is Fiver. FIBER was established in Tel Aviv and expanded worldwide, including the US I believe that FIBER is on the leading edge of the emerging "economy." The service they provided allows people to find and sell their services to a huge network that they would otherwise have been unable to access.
I saw the case of Israel: the outpost of democracy. One thing I learned from watching this film is the history of Israel and their contacts with other countries. I appreciate the people who live longer because they have to fight for democracy and peace on a daily basis.
My name is Or and the meaning of the name is light, my parents gave it to me because I was born early in the morning with first light.
Http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7u3DhtXQRkk Title: In discussing the Taylor Force Law, Robio discusses Palestinian financing for terrorists. I chose video because I always wanted to know more facts about the sources of Palestinian terror. In addition, I learned that the Palestinian terrorists are rewarded for their actions.
My favorite holiday memory is of purim when I was a child. I liked going to the temple with my parents while me and all the other kids were dressed up in our costumes. The thing I remember most vividly is the deafening sound of all the gragers rattling each time the cantor said Haman's name. This memory stands out for me because Purim is one of the happiest of jewish holidays and a personal favorite of mine.
I gained more disgust for injecting transitory political trends into ancient traditions.
Havdalah means to me the distingish between shabbat to regular day. My lesson is appreciationg and be thankful to the good things in my life.
Link : https://youtu.be/WEbIYPu_D14 The title of the video : What a drone saw in the Middle East? Not what you think! The resource : Israel Video Network I wanted to look how Israel looks from camera of a drone It influenced me how beautiful and gougers Israel is from north to south and from nature to city !
If you look at your day and only see the bad things, you won't be happy ever. Maybe your car broke down, and while that can make you sad or angry, instead, smile when someone stops to offer their help. Smile when you enjoyed your lunch for the day, or even if that little thing was seeing a comedic bumper sticker. Focus on the little things in life.
Apple is going to open an official shop for repairing phones
I learned the meaning of the word Kaballah. The word kaballah means "to receive" which through the knowledge of these writings one receives/obtains a spiritual soul.
I visited Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and learned a lot. I was there as a soldier and it made me realize how important my service is

Los Angeles. I lived across the street and it was a deep experience.
http://rabbisacks.org/credo-interfaith-respect-is-vital/ Rabbi Sacks November 11 This topic is all about what the bible says about interfaith and how important it really is to respect each others faith. In faith itself and in the bible, it says to respect one another. I can really apply what i learned through this that it is possible to connect with other faiths and people of other faith by simply respecting them.
I chose to cook Limonana. The drink was really good, but my family thought it was too strong. Next time, I want to make the slushy version of the drink that I tried by the Dead Sea
This was a very good film led by Liz Wahl who quit her job as an anchor for a Russian media company because she felt the censorship from the government was too strong. She goes to Israel to learn about the bias in the coverage of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. She highlights some factors that contribute to bias including censorship, local fixers, unconscious bias, media outlet ownership and social media. She investigates these forms of bias in Israel and it's a very interesting example that taught me to think more whenever I'm reading or learning a new topic.
