Shalom of Safed
Jewish holidays do not simply recall the past. Jewish holidays are cautionary tales for all time. They remind us that Jewish history repeats itself with terrible constancy.
The Jewish people introduced ethical monotheism to the world — and for this gift the world has never forgiven us.
Thus, we are despised and demonized.
Usually, we publish photos organized around a central theme.
We’re feeling a bit scattered. We’re spooked by the Emperor Obama, by what’s happening to this country. And of course by the Arab Muslim war against the Jews. The Iranians are edging closer to becoming a nuclear power. We are watching various national and international calamities unfold in slow motion. We feel helpless. And there are days when we feel, yup, hopeless.
Here are a few photos that, we hope, will lift your mood.
