On the other hand…writes Michael Kuttner

The dream of a re-established Jewish homeland enabled by Lord Balfour one hundred years ago is today a reality.

At the 1925 opening of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Balfour who was the guest of honor made this prophetic prediction:

“A new era has begun. The great cultural genius that came to an end, and that had been dormant for so many years, is now going to be renewed.”

We are witness to this miracle every day. Here are some more examples:


 The world’s first magnetic resonance instrument (MRI) built specially for examining premature and older infants has been installed and tested on six patients at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. The babies sleep comfortably while held in a soft brace during the scan and do not need to be anaesthetised.

The device, called the Embrace system and recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, was recently installed in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. The Embrace device makes it possible to perform high-quality MRI tests without endangering the babies. This improves the service that babies and their families will receive – accurate information about brain structure, identification of infants at risk and early treatment of these infants.



The underground blood bank, designed to keep the nation’s blood supply safe and protected even during a catastrophic event, will be the first of its kind in the world. It will enable MDA to increase the scope of the existing blood bank’s services while providing comprehensive solutions to the needs of Israel’s health care system.

MDA said that once built, the new blood bank will make use of groundbreaking technology in the preservation and storage of blood units.



Aynaw, 26, comes from humble beginnings; she walked barefoot as an orphaned child in the Ethiopian village of Gondar. Both of her parents had died by the time she was 9. After her mother’s death, Aynaw and her brother lived with their aunt, before making aliyah in 2004. In Israel, the siblings moved in with their grandparents, who had already arrived in the Jewish state.

Since being crowned Miss Israel, Aynaw’s meteoric rise has seen her become one of Israel’s top models, a prominent media personality and a staunch advocate for the Jewish state. Along the way, she has shattered a cultural glass ceiling and paved the way for other young Ethiopian-Israeli women to follow in her footsteps.
