    Youth movements remember fallen heroes

    “When you lose someone, your life and the way you knew it will never be the same - everything is different… It’s not true that life continues. It stops and then re-starts, differently…”

    Sharing Israel’s pain at the embassy

    May 04, 2017 Go comment!
    The ceremony started with a siren - the same siren (live on Israeli radio) that stopped the whole of Israel to remember their soldiers who fell in active duty. Although we were commemorating Yom Hazikaron in the garden of the Israeli Embassy in Pretoria, as Ambassador Arthur Lenk said: “For this instant, it feels like we are united, we are in Israel.

    Israelis in SA on Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha’atzmaut

    May 04, 2017 Go comment!
    South African Jews gather annually to commemorate Yom Hazikaron and then Yom Ha’atzmaut, but it is not quite as personal for us as it is for Israelis living in South Africa. The SA Jewish Report asked a handful of Israelis what they do so far from home on these special days.

    Pesach seders of my youth

    Apr 07, 2017 Go comment!
    There were people living there – alas, very few remain - anchored like the roots of the giant oaks that shade the long, narrow road of Wellington Avenue, in Wynberg, Cape Town.

    Preparing for Pesach in Ukraine's last shtetl

    At first glance, this drab town, 256 km south of Kiev seems nearly identical to the settlements that dot the poverty-stricken district of Vinnitsa.

    Quiche with a vegetable crust for Passover

    Apr 07, 2017 Go comment!
    Breakfast can be hard during Passover - no oatmeal, no toast and certainly no pancakes. (No, the boxed kind do not count.) I like making eggs or matzah brei or even shakshuka (a combination of eggs, tomatoes and spices). But I am always looking for something a little different to serve as a satisfying breakfast or portable lunch.

    Matzah tiramisu

    Apr 07, 2017 Go comment!
    Tiramisu translates to “pick me up”. And this popular Italian dessert sure lifts our mood! In the recipe we altered the classic way of making it, by using matzah in place of traditional ladyfingers. The matzah soaks up the cream, chocolate, and rum with mouth-watering results.

    With our freedom from slavery, what are Jews free to do?

    Apr 07, 2017 Go comment!
    At Pesach, Jews over the world gather to celebrate "zman cheirutenu", the season of our freedom. We will read all about freedom from slavery. We drink four cups of wine to rejoice in the four freedoms given to our ancestors by G-d.

    Redeeming your miles

    During the American Bush Administrations (both Senior and Junior), a tired old classic in Jewish humour advised the Israeli prime ministers of the period, to ignore anything the American president said, because, as the punchline went, the last time we listened to a bush, we ended up wandering in the desert for 40 years.

    Pesach away from family

    Apr 06, 2017 Go comment!
    The absence of family always becomes magnified around the High Holy days. When one emigrates, you get used to missing out on spending time with your siblings, parents and extended family on a regular basis. That’s not to say it gets any easier. It simply becomes the new normal.

    Ten easy tips to avoid a boring seder

    Apr 06, 2017 Go comment!
    If your Passover seder is anything like mine, it can resemble the world’s most difficult classroom: different ages, ranging from three to 93, and varying levels of interest. Some want to read and discuss every word in the Haggadah, some just want to get to the food - and everything in between.

    Embrace the young as they are our future

    Apr 06, 2017 Go comment!
    Trying to understand young adults - or Millennials - is no easy task. Countless debates have focused on whether it is better to have young leaders or staff, or not. This is pertinent in government today as President Jacob Zuma has changed his Cabinet to supposedly bring in young(er) blood.

    The egg in Exodus

    Apr 06, 2017 Go comment!
    At Pesach seders around the world, one item on our seder plates will be a simple hard boiled egg. For me, this little egg tells a fascinating story and truly encapsulates what Pesach is all about and what message it has for us today.

    Isn’t there enough to do?

    Apr 06, 2017 Go comment!
    Many families do their best to race through the Pesach haggadah to get to the food, while others do their best to make it meaningful. Hayley Levitan and her family have made Pesach a themed event of the year and their success has spread by word of mouth.
