On the other hand

The countdown to Election Day followed by Pesach (Passover) has begun.

While the final results are as yet unknown one thing is certain. On Seder night there will be quite a few politicians and aspiring leaders who will be wondering why “this night is different from all other nights.” They will either be celebrating liberation from the political wilderness or more likely dreading a return to servitude in the opposition.

Thank goodness innovation, research and good news do not cease while we are bombarded with inflated promises of paradise.

 

PROTECTING HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS

With COVID vaccination in full swing Israeli health care workers have not lost sight of the fact that many housebound Holocaust survivors are unable to travel to a vaccination centre.

Swinging into action, care providers have initiated a campaign to ensure that each and every survivor receives the vaccination.

 

ONLY IN ISRAEL

If you happen to be hospitalized in any country outside of Israel you will most likely miss out on any of the religious Festivals which may occur. This is especially hard for children who have to spend Purim in the strange and often scary surroundings of a hospital ward.

In Israel however this problem never happens because every effort is made to ensure that adults but especially children can celebrate in style.

This past Purim was no exception with children of all ethnicities enjoying themselves thanks to the countless volunteers who worked tirelessly to bring joy and light to ill youngsters.

 

CULTURE OF A DIFFERENT KIND

 A lot of research is being undertaken in Israel to produce animal-free meat in the near future.

This has enormous implications for the development of meat products without the need to farm animals and slaughter them for food.

If successful and economic and proven safe and healthy this could transform agriculture worldwide and have serious implications for meat exporting countries such as Australia and New Zealand.

 

 

SAVING CORAL REEFS

 With the recent tar pollution along Israel’s Mediterranean coast in mind it is relevant to focus on efforts to safeguard and preserve the unique coral reefs in the Red Sea off Eilat.
