KISS ME, I’M JEWISH auf arte

Kiss Me, I’m Jewish und Musik von JEWDYSSEE

Der junge Rabbiner Zevi Ives und seine Frau Sara verkörpern die derzeitige Aufbruchstimmung, die unter den jungen Juden Europas herrscht. Sie mischen mit ihrer Organisation für Jüdische Studenten in Europa (ECJS) das jüdische Leben auf dem Kontinent auf. Ihre Mission: Jude sucht Jüdin. Viermal im Jahr rufen sie: “Party Like a Jew”, und Tausende jüdischer Singles folgen ihnen zu den Single-Wochendenden, die sie in ganz Europa organisieren.
In der dritten Generation nach der Schoah breitet sich die Vielfalt jüdischen Lebens wieder kraftvoll in den Metropolen Europas aus. Kreativ, vernetzt, selbstbewusst und unternehmungshungrig treten junge Jüdinnen und Juden ihr reiches kulturelles Erbe an. Sie brechen über 60 Jahre nach dem Holocaust auf, um zu erwecken, was auch von ihren Eltern verdrängt und verschüttet wurde. Auf der Suche nach einer eigenen jüdischen Identität finden sie neue, zeitgemäße Formen und Inhalte. Sie tun dies im Bewusstsein, als Juden leben zu wollen, und auch, um von ihrer Umgebung als Juden erfahren zu werden.
Die Dokumentation hält fest, was es bedeutet, für 400 jüdische Singles aus ganz Europa ein Event zu organisieren, bis die Flirtlustigen schließlich anreisen, um den Spagat zwischen Thora und Speed-Dating zu wagen.

*Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” packs so much heartbreak and pain into every note that it’s nearly impossible not to sing along and feel what she’s feeling. The song takes another turn with Diwon’s remix, bridging the upbeat feel of a club track and downtempo feel of a song meant for headphones and lonely nights.

Honey Lime Grilled Chicken! Tasty. Healthy. Easy. Great in a salad, over rice or in a soft bun

Some nights I crave carbs like pizza and pasta. Then there are the nights when all I want is a fresh garden salad topped with juicy slices of perfectly grilled chicken. This marinade blends together some of my favorite ingredients to create a sweetly glazed chicken with a kick of lime.

 

Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
Juice of 1 lime
3 tablespoons honey
3 cloves of garlic, diced
1 tablespoon of ginger, diced
1 teaspoon Grill Mates® Montreal Steak Seasoning.

Directions:
Combine the olive oil, soy sauce, lime, honey, garlic, ginger and steak seasoning in a large zip lock bag. Place the chicken inside and marinate for several hours. Heat grill pan to medium high and grill chicken for approximately 6 minutes each side, or until juices run clear. Squeeze some fresh lime on top before serving.

Pomegranate of commandments by Alisa Poplavskaya

Pomegranate of Commandments
Acrylic on Canvas, 90×80 cm, Stockholm, 2008

 

In the painting “Pomegranate of Commandments”  the pomegranate seeds appear to the observer as Hebrew letters, hinting at the notion of the holiness of language, similar to the idea that James Joyce had for his “Ulysses”, language is the martial art of our human spiritual eyes.

This is one aspect. Based on Jewish mystical scripture a pomegranate is the symbol of the 613 commandments in the Torah. There are two different kinds of commandments: The DOs and the DON’Ts that scripture can reflect back from the reality it stems from, be it real or a legend. The same division is also to be found in the “Ten Commandments”, where five commandments present the relationship between God and humans and the other five represent the relationships among people, which can be understood both in a religious or a Kantian way. These relationships are presented by the different branches and roots, which are either growing up or pointing down. The branches which are growing up symbolize our connection to our HIGHEST, and the branches which are growing down symbolize the relationships between people.

The path inside the pomegranate begins with dark colours and at the end it becomes golden: this symbolizes the Exodus of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt to the land of milk and honey. In the colours of “milk and honey” the observer finds similarities to a map of the biblical lands. Focus on the second glimpse…

Pomegranates by Alisa Poplavskaya

According to Midrash a pomegranate has 613 seeds to represent the 613 commandments in the Torah. The design of the pomegranate was woven into the high priest’s robes, and brass representations were part of the Temple’s pillars. It is mentioned six times in the Song of Solomon. In different cultures this fruit represents mitzvoth and desire, color and taste, symbol and paradise…

“Menora” by Alisa Poplavskaya

© Copyright 2012 Alisa Poplavskaya All Rights Reserved

The Talmud speaks only of the menorah made by Bezaleel for the Tabernacle in the time of Moses (Ex. xxxvii. 17 et seq.), which was later placed in the Temple.

Shema Yisrael (or Sh’ma Yisroel or just Shema)  are the first two words of a section of the Torah (Hebrew Bible) that is a centerpiece of the morning and evening Jewish prayer services. The first verse encapsulates the monotheistic essence of Judaism: “Hear, O Israel: the Lord is our God, the Lord is One.” The Shema is considered the most important prayer in Judaism, and its twice-daily recitation is a mitzvah (religious commandment).

In the painting the following symbols are presented: Noah’s ark, Shofar, Menora

In my painting I have tried to combine those symbols with a light of life (hai) and enlightenment of the way with the prayer Shema.
