All the other guys are looking at her like they are so happy to see her, even if she isn’t their daughter. One of my favorite pictures.





Aw omg, the facial expressions.


I completely understand why they’re all excited. You start to miss your loved ones so much that you feel happy when someone else gets to see theirs, even if you don’t get to see yours.


There aren’t any words to describe this one.


I will never not reblog this.


Bet they don’t look at Palestinian girls like that.

Don’t

even as a soldier, a child is still a child to us. We don’t lose our compassion just because we are at war

This woman honestly humbles me. And I use the word woman and not girl, even though she is several years younger than I am, because she’s seen and lived through things that I, and most of us, can scarcely imagine. She’s literally almost died for her cause, been shot in the head, and yet she isn’t giving up, isn’t trying to hide, and even more amazingly than that, she hasn’t let it make her a bitter or cruel person. I just… I don’t have words for how admirable she is.

And I highly suggest you all watch the full interview:

So if I understand correctly, your tests had to include memorising the various texts and commentaries? If so, yours is a much higher level-I had my big finishing test today, and I basically didn't have to study or remember much for it because all the information was given as part of the test...I'm curious about the Hebrew vocabulary- did you have to study Hebrew in general- like the grammar and origins of words and stuff- or just from the passages you were given? sorry again for bothering you ><

You’re not a bother!

Yeah, you’re understanding that correctly. As for the Hebrew vocabulary, for our Biblical subjects we only had to remember words or phrases from the text we were currently studying. However, we also studied Hebrew as a separate subject, as a language.

If you want to discuss this further, I’d be happy to, but it might be better if you came off Anon? I don’t want to clutter up my followers’ dashes, if that’s okay.

sorry if I'm nagging, but what sort of questions were including in the test? 'cause I've got a feeling that yours were of a much higher level than ours, which mostly require an understanding of Hebrew and the ability to look through our bible books and say what we think the passages mean and why did the people act like that/why the passage was written like that...

You’re not nagging!

Well, like I said, I was in Jewish school from nursery school up until I started college, and we had multiple Judaic subjects, so I’ve taken a LOT of Bible-related tests in my life. Most of the time, it was questions on the content itself, questions about the various commentaries (like Rashi, the Rambam, etc.), and some memorization of quotes - like fill-in-the-blanks on a quotation, or being given a quote out of context and needing to answer who said it to whom, that kind of thing. 

Plus there was always some Hebrew vocabulary taken from whatever we were studying that we’d need to translate.

losing an argument when you are right just because the other person is too stupid to understand what you’re saying is probably one of the most infuriating things in the entire universe

Also: To anyone who’s sent me a message in the last few days

Apologies if you haven’t gotten an answer yet. I’ve been pretty busy the lately (which you can probably tell from my infrequent posts) and haven’t had as much time as I’d like for tumblr. But I WILL hopefully respond by the end of this weekend, and I’m sorry to keep you waiting!

Sometimes I wonder if the bad rep Jews get is just because other people don’t get our sense of humor.

This epiphany courtesy of the following conversation, as we cleaned up from Pesach:

My mother: Jews are weird. We keep our tablecloth in the bathroom.

Me: It’s true. Who knows what other weird stuff we’re up to?

My mother: We also have a Christian child in there.

Me: Bound. And gagged.

My mother: With the tablecloth.

Happy Easter to all of my followers who celebrate!

I’m still in the middle of my own religious holiday so you can expect me to be MIA from tonight until Tuesday night, but I just wanted to quickly pop in to wish a wonderful holiday to any Christian followers of mine who are celebrating today.

I hope you have a great day! :-)

Heads-Up:

I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m not going to be around here for the next few days - not because of any bad reason, just as part of the observance of the Pesach (Passover) holiday. So if any of you notice I’m missing, please don’t worry - I’ll just be gone because of religious observance, and hopefully celebrating.

(Or else I’ll have overdosed on matzah, in which case, it has been an honor knowing you all.)

More seriously- I just want to take the time to say that I love you guys, so so much. And that’s aimed at a few of you in particular, who I assume know who they are (though possibly not, being that several of you are depressingly adept in the art of selling yourselves short.) Thank you so much for being my friends, and for listening to me, and for making me laugh. I will miss being around you so much (even though it’s just for a few days), and I can’t wait to talk more when I get back. <3

And to any of my Jewish followers out there who observe the holiday - Happy Pesach to all of you! :-)

This would be a great argument for contraception, but for abortion? Um, yeah, the organism is already alive in the womb. It already has 46 chromosomes. It is alive and it is human. And abortion kills it. So… Sorry. That’s just simple science right there. The real argument for or against abortion is a philosophical one. When does it become wrong to kill a human? When do the mother’s wishes trump the baby’s right to life? It’s not a simple issue, no, but there certainly is no ambiguity that it kills a living human.

Um, but there really is? I mean, there isn’t ambiguity for me, because I don’t think a cluster of cells is a living human, but for the sake of argument I’m going to say that there is. But when does a potential life take prescience over an existing one? Why should a full-fledged person have her choices about her reproductive health taken from her? I mean we’re not talking about a week of discomfort here, we’re talking about forcing a woman to have a freaking baby she never wanted in the first place. And don’t give me this ‘she can give the child up for adoption’, because yes she could, but that isn’t the point. 

#sorry I&#8217;m really strongly pro-choice #and I don&#8217;t agree with that argument #an embryo is not a person #it could be at some point #but it&#8217;s not yet
The question is, at what point does a fetus stop being a &#8216;potential life&#8217; and become just&#8230; well, a person? At this point, a baby can be born several months early and live - it will probably have health complications, but it can live. Once it&#8217;s been born, I don&#8217;t know anyone who would argue that it isn&#8217;t a person. Or that it&#8217;s okay to kill it if you don&#8217;t want a baby. So should it be considered a person outside the womb but not when it&#8217;s still inside the womb? Maybe. Maybe not. It&#8217;s a very tricky thing to define.
Now, of course abortions are generally done much earlier than that - long before the baby could possibly be born and survive. But the question is, at what point does that bunch of cells become a human baby? At five months? Seven months? The full nine months? Is it not considered a baby until it leaves the womb, however many months old it is when that happens?
It&#8217;s possible now to do surgery where a fetus can be temporarily removed so that the mother can be operated on, and then returned so that her pregnancy can continue. If we define a fetus as a person by whether it&#8217;s in the mother&#8217;s womb or not, is it a person while it&#8217;s out of the womb, and then go back to not being a person once it&#8217;s put back inside? What if a baby was grown in an artificial womb, and was never inside its mother at all? At what point should she be allowed to change her mind and decide she wants to get rid of it?
This is not a simple issue, and technology will make it even less so as time goes on. When push comes to shove, yes, I am pro-choice too. I wish no one ever had to get one, but that would be unrealistic. But it&#8217;s not a simple issue, at all.

Wow, I actually just stumbled across two people canoodling in the library. I thought that only happened in YA novels and cliched movies.

I mean, they weren’t having sex or anything, but they were lying on the floor between the shelves, and they were rather… closely entwined, shall we say.

I’m not offended or anything, I just find it rather funny. Livin’ the cliche, you guys! xD

It is officially my birthday where I am, and I’m going to sleep.

Hopefully I’ll see you all tomorrow to celebrate! :-)
