The Muqata Yeshiva

What wonderful readers we have here at the Muqata blog.

One of our sharp-eyed readers (who asked to remain anonymous because he doesn't want to admit to reading any blogs) sent us this photo he took at the Nefesh B'Nefesh landing ceremony today.




Apparently there is an entire school in Israel that uses the Muqata blog as the pillar of their education curriculum.

How does that translate?

The Land (of Israel) is very very good?

Is it a Pasuk?

Numbers 14: 6-7, JPS translation:

"And Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh, of those who had scouted the land, rent their clothes and exhorted the whole Israelite community: 'the land that we traversed and scouted is an exceedingly good land.'"

I think your translation is more accurate though.

Yochanan: Its part of the Muqata byline, quoting from Yehoshua and Calev.

They were the only 2 of the spies who defended the land of Israel. Your translation is correct.

Hey. It's also my DH's political party - when he ran for the municipality elections in Ma'aleh Adumim last fall (http://gidonariel.wordpress.com/after-the-election/). Of course, I don't know if these guys are from Ma'aleh Adumim...

And they have waffles for lunch every day.

It's my absolutely favorite Pasuk--and how I knew I would enjoy your blog from the first day I found it.

I can think of a few left-wing blogs whose byline ought to be "הארץ ארץ אכלת יושביה היא" (Bamidbar 13:32).

Or maybe "ונהי בעינינו כחגבים" (ibid. 33).

This hold this defeatist position even in spite of the fact that Yehoshua's and Calev's slogan was, "Yes, We Can" (ibid. 30).
