The Roll Pics: Bonding With IDF and Meeting the Sabbath

Print Email

Suzie, center, bought our new IDF friends roses at the Mahane Yehuda market today.


The original Extremities plus our eight Israeli soldiers.

At the Israel Museum, contextualizing the country through abstraction.

Kicking off the Sabbath in the Holy City before the all-gold menorah behind us, the Wailing Wall before.

Observing the Old City's habits with local spectators.

Soldiers in plainclothes, "they're just like us!"

Female fashion homogenizes Friday nights.

Signing off for Friday night, going to have some l’chaims in the lobby in pre-bat/bar mitzvah celebration.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

The Golden Menorah was paid for and placed there by Jewish extremists who want a 3rd Temple to *replace* the Dome of the Rock.  It’s a place-marker of insanity.
