Blood Test for Alzheimer’s

{image_1}“Today, one of the main weaknesses in the Alzheimer’s area is that patients don’t find out until it’s too late,” says Ilya Budik, CEO of NeuroQuest, an Israeli company developing a novel blood test for early detection of the most common cause of dementia worldwide. “There are many new therapies under development, and the most successful trials are showing the earlier a patient is treated, the better likelihood of responding to the treatment,” he says.

Operation Pillar of Defense

{image_1}Operation Pillar of Defense was launched in November 2012 after years of rocket attacks on southern Israeli communities. During the eight days of the operation, Hamas fired 1,506 rockets at Israel. The Iron Dome system intercepted 421, and 152 fell in Gaza itself. Five Israeli civilians were killed by the rockets and a further 240 were injured. An 18-year-old soldier also died in the attacks. Homes, schools, and apartment blocks were hit by the rockets. Three and a half million Israelis were put at risk. The use of the Fajr-5 rockets brought both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv within range.

The Siddur

{image_1}If you have been to Jerusalem, you may have noticed that everywhere you go, you see religious Jews with a book. They are always reading it and praying. Have you ever wondered, “What is that book?” It is the prayer book, or “siddur” in Hebrew. Siddur comes from the word “seder,” which means “order.” The prayer book gives an order to prayer. Orthodox Jews normally pray three times a day. They follow the prayer book for individual or group prayer, which requires a minyan (literally meaning “to count”) of ten men. While prayer books vary depending on the version, there is a consistency in content and order.

{image_1}Israeli entrepreneur Nimrod Elmish is positive that the idea for a wheelchair made out of cardboard has crossed many people’s minds. But it took an Israeli team to make it a reality. With great feedback and global interest in their first venture—recyclable cardboard bicycles—Elmish and automation expert Izhar Gafni have quietly added the cardboard wheelchair project to their operation. It’s made of less than $10 worth of durable recycled cardboard, plastic bottles, and recycled tires.

Immigrants Helping Immigrants

{image_1}Many times over the years, we have published articles on the immigration of Ethiopian Jews, also called Falashas. The stories of how they arrived back in the 1980s and ‘90s are some of the most dramatic and amazing in the history of Jewish immigration. But their struggles do not end upon arrival. Coming from a strong tribal culture into a technological, modern nation has been extremely challenging.
