Who cares?


I enjoy watching them interview the olim and how they explain how the idea of aliyah came to them.

Thank you for sharing.
God, grant us the...
Serenity to accept things we cannot change,
Courage to change the things we can, and the
Wisdom to know the difference
Patience for the things that take time
Appreciation for all that we have, and
Tolerance for those with different struggles
Freedom to live beyond the limitations of our past ways, the
Ability to feel your love for us and our love for each other and the
Strength to get up and try again even when we feel it is hopeless.

Bar Ilan is a very popular option these days, instead of YU or Stern. The Israeli government may even help pay for your degree.

Anyway, the ceremony was very nice. Shimon Peres was there and seemed to thoroughly enjoy personally (I do mean personally) greeting all the new soldiers that arrived (soldiers of course not being limited to the male gender). He was very impressive for an 87 year old (his birthday was today) and even sat down on the floor for a group shot with the soldiers.

The broadcast is now available on demand at the same link posted above.

I was impressed by the female soldier-to-be who wouldn't kiss him or shake his hand.

My cousins must have been zoomed in on 8 or so times in the video!

Some observations:

1- Did Peres really have to kiss each girl on each cheek? What a time waster.

2- Kudos to the chick who didn't let him touch her at all. What a pity she'll be going to the army, where, statistically speaking, she will become an isheh zoine vachaluleh. Nebech, nebech. What kind of dai'os kozvos allow something like this?

3- The performer, couldn't he dress a bit more formally? Jeans and a t-shirt? Really? He wasn't even a rock 'n roller.

4- The guy who received his papers from Peres at the Presentation. What a mechitzef he is, chewing gum the whole time while standing next to - and receiving a certificate from - the President of his adopted country! I guess it's a case of when in Rome...

It's a tough job being President, but somebody has to do it.

2- Kudos to the chick who didn't let him touch her at all. What a pity she'll be going to the army, where, statistically speaking, she will become an isheh zoine vachaluleh. Nebech, nebech. What kind of dai'os kozvos allow something like this?


Nah, she's gonna be a jobnik. I already got her number.

3- The performer, couldn't he dress a bit more formally? Jeans and a t-shirt? Really? He wasn't even a rock 'n roller.


But that was formal dress... :unsure:

4- The guy who received his papers from Peres at the Presentation. What a mechitzef he is, chewing gum the whole time while standing next to - and receiving a certificate from - the President of his adopted country! I guess it's a case of when in Rome...


The President didn't notice, he was concentrating more on the other person receiving papers.
