From her Youtube Channel:

My version of the Joni Mitchell song, from the beloved album BLUE, one of my favorite albums of all times!!
This cover was musically produced by Ayal Yishay, who also played the guitars, bass, keyboards, recorded and mixed the track.
I am “singing” the Arabic Flute, which is something I invented and have been performing with in the last few years, where I don’t actually play the Ney, but I sing through it…Yep, bit weird, but you can see/hear it in the video;-)
The video was done by my dear friend Shredy Jabarin, Thank you so much man!!:-) you can look Shredy up in his website: www.shredyjabarin.de

Here’s a new name for you to remember: Shira Vilensky. The young actress, who is remembered among Israeli teenagers for her role in the successful original series “Hashminia,” has been cast in a new Hollywood movie entitled ‘The Iceman.’

The horror movie, directed by Ariel Vromen, revolves around a psychopath serial killer who freezes his victims at his house. Vilensky will play a waitress in a coffeeshop (possibly a potential victim?), alongside big (Jewish) names like Winona Ryder , David Shwimmer and (not so Jewish) Chris Evans. Shooting has already started over the past few weeks in Los Angeles and New York.

Vilensky, 28, started her career as a model, and in 2002 was cast for her first big role in Israel, in the movie “Knafayim Shvurot” (‘Broken Wings’). She also played in the successful Israeli Telenovela “Michaela,” and even did “Dancing with the Stars” in 2006. Lately she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a Hollywood career and had a role in the 2011 movie “Joshua Tree,” opposite Michael Madsen (‘Kill Bill’). Vilensky is also set to make an appearance in the highly anticipated all-star movie ‘Lovelace,’ alongside names like Demi Moore, James Franco, Amanda Seyfried, Eric Roberts and Adam Brody.

Sandra Bernhard’s cutting edge humor was on display at the Painted Bride in Philadelphia last night. Who knew that Bernhard and Republican Presidential candidate Michele Bachman had something in common? Both of them worked on a Kibbutz after high school. The only difference being that Bernhard had lots of family here.

Bernhard credits the Kibbutz with instilling a work ethic in her. She rose at 7 15, 6 days a week to pick fruit, cotton, etc.

University of Arts Professor Camille Paglia and Bernhard used to be good friends. Their friendship ended over Palin. Paglia semi endorsed Palin’s brand of feminism during the 2008 elections, which disturbed Bernhard. “This election is too important to even joke about things like that,” said Bernhard.

Delegation of Israeli doctors sets up eye surgery camps in seven developing countries

Israeli doctors have recently restored the eyesight of more than 2,000 people in seven countries: Nepal, Myanmar, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Cambodia, the Maldives and Ethiopia.

The surgical operations were performed in special camps set up by MASHAV (Israel’s Agency for International Development Cooperation, which is subject to the Foreign Ministry) in cooperation with the Eye from Zion organization and the Kahn Foundation. All surgeons were Israeli ophthalmologists.

Eye Camps is a special operation aimed at restoring the eyesight of patients in developing countries which have no infrastructure for eye surgery. Israel sends a team of ophthalmologists who for two weeks perform cataract, oculoplastics and sight restoring surgical operations on dozens of patients.

The Israeli physicians also provide professional training and guidance to local teams engaging in ophthalmology. The locals are responsible for selecting the potential candidates for surgery and gathering them in a central hospital or any other suitable site.

The equipment required for the operations and post-surgery treatments is purchased by MASHAV and flown to the different countries through diplomatic mail.
