Israel in the World

This colorful volume takes an in-depth look at a remarkable achievement: how one small and very young country has successfully become one of the world's technological leaders.

From agriculture to medicine, Israel stands right at the forefront of technological development. Learn about the country's many achievements and breakthoughs, and how it's poised to remain on the industrial cutting edge in the foreseeable future. The countless accomplishments outlined here would be dazzling, even if they hadn't emerged from a nation that didn't even exist 60 years ago: Israel created the ICQ chat facility that is now used by hundreds of millions of internet surfers each day; the technology that allows you to leave voicemail messages on a mobile phone; the medical diagnostic equipment (including magnetic resonance imaging) found in most hospitals; and the surveillance equipment that alerts security officials to suspicious activities at airports. Find out about the people who made such progress possible; the educational system that allowed these citizens, many of them recent immigrants, to reach their full potential; and how Israel uses its knowledge for the well-being of the world.

If you would like to catalog and add Israel in the World to your library’s collection, please send us an e-mail with your name, the library’s shipping information, and phone. Please accept the CD as a DONATION as long as our supply lasts.

Israeli library displays last batch of Obtained Kafka works 8/7/2019

Israeli library displays last batch of obtained Kafka works
by Press Association

Israel’s National Library has unveiled a batch of previously unseen personal letters, illustrations, diaries and handwritten manuscripts belonging to famed author Franz Kafka.

After a lengthy legal saga, the papers arrived from a Swiss bank two weeks ago with roughly 100 other artifacts.

The released materials are the final unseen portion of a collection inherited by Max Brod, Kafka’s long-time friend and editor, and the publication marks the end of an 11-year battle in court.

Although the collection does not include substantial unpublished work by Kafka, researchers believe it will help shed light on the life and thinking of one of the most influential writers of the 20th century.

Kafka's Rare Manuscripts: From The Vault in Switzerland to the Library in Jerusalem
The newly arrived documents include Kafka's manuscripts of the uncompleted story "Wedding Preparations in the Country", a notebook for learning Hebrew, hundreds of personal letters, sketches, and more

“We are very happy for this moment, finally, after almost 12 years of legal proceedings, many travels and treasure hunts, to bring Max Brod’s estate with papers of Franz Kafka to Jerusalem,” said Oren Weinberg, the director of Israel’s National Library.

He said the release fulfilled Brod’s wishes to make the materials publicly accessible and enhances research on the influential author.

JNS.org – There was great hope and anticipation several years ago when the Palestinian Authority (PA) announced that it was completely replacing its K-12 school textbooks. But new editions merely confirm obsessive Palestinian hatred of Jews and rejection of peace with Israel.

The older Palestinian textbooks were filled with ugly anti-Zionist and antisemitic propaganda... Read the full story...

A New York Times “Saturday Profile” of the Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations is the latest in a series of Times articles that links the Palestinian Arab cause to the struggle against racism, casting Israel in the role of the racist.

The ambassador, Riyad Mansour, marched “for civil rights” as a college student in Ohio and “once helped lead a demonstration at Kent State University against a speech by the Ku Klux Klan’s grand wizard, David Duke,” the Times reports in the third and fourth paragraphs of its profile.

BESTSELLING JEWISH NOVELIST REMOVED FROM TWO UK LITERARY EVENTS
“I never expected my career in the UK would be prejudiced by my being Jewish. It made Britain seem like a place I didn’t know and maybe never knew."
bY JERUSALEM POST staff

Bestselling novelist Richard Zimler, has been dropped from two "literary events" in the United Kingdom due to two cultural event coordinators terminating publicizing his novel due to feared outrage from anti-Israel activists, according to the Guardian.

Zimler was "deeply shocked and upset," saying that he had no words to be said initially after being told, and now worries that an "atmosphere of fear" and antisemitism means that Jewish professionals will now be denied work.
