Baby born in IDF field hospital, named Israel
At least 12 babies, most of them premature, have been delivered in Israel’s field hospital in the Philip-pines — including one named Israel.“We choose the name ‘Israel’ as just saying thank you to the Israeli people,” said Audrin Antigua, holding her new-born son. “Thank you so much.”The hospital is seeing about 300 patients a day, many injured in last week’s Typhoon Haiyan or with chronic conditions exacerbated by the lack of running water or electricity. The premature babies are being cared for in incubators brought by the Israel Defense Forces as part of the field hospital.“I am not sure what would have happened if we had not been around,” said Lt.-Col. Dr. Ofer Merin, the field hospital’s medical manager.The IDF’s 147-member medical and humanitarian delegation and 100 tons of humanitarian and medical supplies landed on Thursday evening in Bogo City on Cebu Island, one of the areas hardest hit by Haiyan.Long lines have become a common sight outside the IDF field hospital since its opening. Bogo City Mayor Ce-lestino Martinez Jr. said, “The typhoon destroyed everything we have here, from infrastructure to agriculture.”“The field hospital capacity that the Israelis can mobilize is top class, and we have seen it very, very effectively in many other crises as well,” John Ging, a top UN humanitarian official, told ABC News.Dr. Nancy Snyderman, an NBC cor-respondent, wrote a long piece on Israel’s humanitarian work. “I asked the IDF Surgeon General in charge why they chose Bogo. He said it was be-cause they were poor and their needs were great. As I left, I walked away in awe of this group of doctors: physi-cian humanitarians, and medicine at its very best,” she wrote.

Chanukah for hobbyists
l
How better to celebrate a holiday marked by candelight (or oil lamps) than with an old-fashioned snail mail card or note?That’s the thought behind the new Chanukah stamp unveiled Tuesday at the Manhattan JCC.The stamp — the latest in a series of Chanukah stamps that began with a 1996 joint issue with Israel — features a photograph of a contemporary forged-iron chanukiah created by Vermont blacksmith Steven Bronstein. Nine white beeswax candles flame atop each of the branches.On the other hand, those looking for a more modern touch to mark the Maccabee’s miracle should know that Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories have expanded its line of do-it-yourself LED menorah kits. New kits feature multicolored LEDs, as well as a no-solder model. Prices start at $13.95 for a kit featuring yellow LEDs.Electronic hobbyists willing to spend a little more money and time to create a computerized menorah that lights itself when it knows that it is Chanukah should go to http:// welikepie.com/hanukkahasaservice

How does it feel?For the Israeli multimedia company Interlude, it must feel very good to be tasked with creating an official music video for Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone,” a mere 48 years after the song premiered.The video appeared on the BobDylan.com website this week, to mark the appearance of a 47-disc box set, The Complete Album Collection Volume 1.The video, using Interlude technology, lets viewers choose between 16 channels — news, sports, home design, children’s cartoon and the like — in which all of the characters mouth Dylan’s lyrics.“In reality, channel-flipping is a very passive act. You’re sitting back in your house, doing nothing. We wanted to make it an active thing, reediting the song itself to make a new version,” the film’s Israeli director, Jerusalem-born Vania Heymann, told Rolling Stone the magazine.Mr. Heymann, a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design and the child of French immigrants, filmed the video in Israel, New York, and California.Maybe it’s time for some Zionist groups to commission a video of Dylan’s 1984 pro-Israel song, Neighborhood Bully.
