Remembering Those Lost in Mumbai

Words can't realy express the horror that terrorist have recently unleashed in Mumbai over the last few days. It is truly sad to see that there are people who will murder people regardless of who they are and what they do. For those who think that terrorist need to be understood or appeased Mumbai is proof that none of that works. So in memory of those who were murdered and so that people don't forget here are some videos to keep it fresh in our memories.

Episode 5: Stuck in Traffic Part 3

So I am getting back to doing the Episodes of the Chronicles. I have taken a bit of a break to do some other videos, as you have seen in the previous posts. This video was filmed several weeks ago when I was stuck in traffic. I decided when that happens to do some studying of Hebrew and to talk about current events. This is actually part 3, and I will go in reverse order similar to that famous Seinfeld Episode.

The Chronicles of Ehav Ever will continue.........‎ Read Entire Post!

Training in Abir: Part 1

So you may have been wondering where I have been, or maybe you haven't. In any case I have been training more in the self-defense/fighting style I have mentioned on this blog before called Abir. Abir is a Jewish martial art that was preserved by the Jews of Habban in southern Yemen. I have been fortunate to learn Abir from the Aluf Abir - Grandmaster Yehoshua Sofer, and I have also been teaching Abir to a kid at my synagogue here in Maale Adummim.

I have also been working on some videos for Abir, and here is my first offering. I am hoping to do about 4 or 5 in total. This video also provides sources from Jewish texts concerning Abir. All of the sources are in Hebrew, but anyone who wants a translation let me know.

You can read more about my experience with Abir in the following posts.

Mixed Chicks Chat Interview: Part 3

As some of you know I keep up with the Mixed Chicks Chat (נשים מערובים) on Talk Shoe. Mixed Chicks Chat is the only live weekly show about being racially and culturally mixed. It is hosted LIVE every week by Fanshen Cox and Heidi Durrow.

I recently made my third appearance on the show. Last night's topic was one that I sent in and it was titled, EPISODE 76 - Weirdos, Stalkers, and Confrontation: The Mixed Experience. It was a really good discussion about how sometimes being mixed and having a presence either on the internet or in person can bring you into contact with some strange people. Note: The joke we have on the show is that I am the Middle East correspondent for their show.

If you click on the button and it is not the episode on stalkers, etc. go here and look for Episode 76.‎ Read Entire Post!

בית כנסת תפארת תימן מעלה אדומים

The following is a video I created for my Beith Keneseth (synagogue) here in Maale Adummim, Tifereth Teiman. The video is in Hebrew, but the short version of what is being said is a history of how the synagogue got started in Maale Adummim, and about the culture of the synagogue. Tifereth Teiman is a Yemenite Jewish synagogue, going by the Baladi tradition. This was filmed during Hol HaMoed of Sukkoth, 2008. So enjoy.

My Kind of Tag

So I got tagged by Invisible Woman today. Though I am not a big fan of being tagged, when it comes to movies I will do it whole heartedly. I am a big movie buff, and I am very picky about movies. Also, about half of my English is made up of movie quotes, so how could I turn down Miss Invisible Woman on something like this.

So the tag is to come up with the ABC's of my favorite films, called "The Alphabet Meme", started by Blog Cabins.

A - Airplane

B - Batman Begins

C - Cooley High

D - Death on the Nile and Dark Knight, The (This was a HUGE toss up for me so I had to include both.)

E - Event Horizon

F - Five Deadly Venoms, The

G - Goonies, The

H - Hav Plenty

I - I Am Legend

J - Johnny Dangerously

K - King Kong Lives

L - Lost Boys, The

M - Meteor Man

N - Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind

O - Outsiders, The

P - Purple Rain

Q - Quarrel, The

R - Raiders of the Lost Ark

S - Snake Eyes

T - The Chronicles of Riddick

U - Uptown Saturday Night

V - Van Helsing

W - When We Were Kings

X - X -Men

Y - Yeelen

Z - Zoro, The Mask of

Doing this made me realize something. Many of my favorite movies start with the letters D, S, and T. The hardest movies for me were K and Z so I wouldn't exactly say those two are the best.

So now I need to tag 5 people. I choose the followig bloggers.

Jacob Da Jew

Light-Skinned-ed Girl

The Happy Go Lucky Bachelor


Artsy Wings, Loops and Things

So stay tuned because the Chronicles of Ehav Ever will continue.

Blogs to Check Out

One more note before I go to bed tonight. I don't often talk about other blogs as much as a should. Yet, there are a few blogs that either have kept my attention since I started blogging or I have recently come across.

First up, is Y-Love's blog. Y-Love is an African American Hassidic Jewish Rapper. His blog covers a number of topics from Jewish issues to political issues. Check him out and you may learn something new.

Second up is that mix of cool, funny, and informative blog Jewliscious. If you have read my blog long enough you will find a video of Dave from Jewlisious during the Jewish Blogger's Convention that took place in Jerusalem a few months ago. Jewiliscious is really a bomb site for the modern Jew who is hip, cool, and doesn't run from his/her Jewish roots. So check them out.

Third up is Invisible Woman's Black Cinema at Large Blog. I have been a fan of the Invisible Woman for some time now. Her blog is witty, funny, and very informative concerning the issues of Black cinema, or the lack of it, in America. She also has some lingo that really makes me laugh. You will never have a dull moment reading her blog. So check out her blog and tell her that Ehav Ever sent you.

Last up is a blog a just came across about a week ago. As soon as I saw the title I knew I had to stop by and take a look. This blog is She Blinded Me with Science. This is the blog of The Science Girl. She is currently a student somewhere in Chicago. Sorry I don't know more, but this is a blogger's world.

So I hope you enjoy some of the blogs that I have been enjoying of late. There will be more to come. Until then...........The Chronicles of Ehav Ever will continue.

Hey All. Sorry for the delay in the video log, but I had a huge emergency. The monitor on my laptop died on me. As I contemplated what I should do I began to realize that my entire life is on my laptop, and that is when madness began to ensue. Yet, there was a light at the end of madness. I went out and bought a new 20" monitor and even a new Canon digital camera. My current camera has had a broken screen for a number of months. So now with my computer area/library looking like the Bat Cave this week the Chronicles will continue.

In the meantime, I have to admit something. I love Snicker's commercials. They seem to come up with some of the weirdest ideas that make me laugh. So here are the latest offerings.
