    Barack in Israel: lots of pictures

    Sen. Barack Obama stands next to the Eternal Flame at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in J'lem. Can I just say that I don't get the wreath thing. I know various leaders do this, but it isn't a Jewish custom to put flowers at a grave so I don't really get this.

    Obama and Bibi. Bibi looks cute, but it's hard to tell what he thinks about meeting Obama. Considering that Israelis favor McCain by 20 points and that Obama's fan club in Israel has only 57 members, probably not too much. Obama with clown Shimon Peres. Obama looks...

    President Bush and Gordon Brown both did the same thing.

    The pebbles came from an old tradition of putting rocks on a tomb to hold the lid down and protect the body from animals.

    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    What on earth is a "yumaka"? It sounds Japanese. It couldn't be a feeble attempt at "yarmulke", surely? :eek:

    A kippah or yarmulke (also called a kappel) is a thin, slightly-rounded skullcap traditionally worn at all times by Orthodox Jewish men, and sometimes by both men and women in Conservative and Reform communities during services and other religious rituals. Its use is associated with demonstrating respect and reverance for God.[1]

    It has as many variations in spelling as there are different tribes of Jews!
