Updated and Free: Jewish Stories including over 70 audio files


Hi Everyone!

I updated the Jewish stories hotsites page:
https://jr.co.il/hotsites/jewish-stories.htm

The English stories range from Hassidic tales
to English translated Yiddish stories.
Today, I added two new sections:
Israel stories and Holocaust stories

The audio section has over 70 stories written by well known
writers like Sholom Aleichem, I. L. Peretz, and S. Y. Agnon.
Many of the stories from Eastern Europe and beyond were
recorded, in English, as a co-production of the National Yiddish
Book Center and radio station KCRW Santa Monica.
The stories were read by famous actors and actresses like
Alan Alda, Harold Gould, Jeff Goldblum, David Margulies,
Jerry Stiller, Julie Kavner, Joanna Gleason, Alan King,
Lauren Bacall, Walter Matthau and others.

Feedback and additions are welcome.

Have a good day,
Jacob

Video and photos of the International Light Festival around the Old City of Jerusalem


Hi Everyone!

Last night, I went to the International Festival of Light exhibition around the Old City of Jerusalem.
There are 32 exhibits and I saw 16 of them during my 90 minute visit.

My 13 minute video and photos will give you a good overview of the festival which runs till July 4.
It is open from 8pm to 11pm Sunday to Thursday and Motza'ei Shabbat from 9pm to midnight.
It is free and worth going to.

I posted the video and a link to the photos at:

Enjoy!
Please share, Thank You!

Shabbat Shalom,
