El Al, Arkia, And Israir Schedule Nonstop Flights Between Tel Aviv And Dubai! Will El Al Fly Their Dreamliner?

Just a few months ago, Israelis were not able to visit the UAE. Now, 3 Israeli airlines will fly nonstop from Tel Aviv to Dubai!

Israeli venture capital broke new records in Q3 2020, but seed rounds are massively down

After finishing a second national lockdown, amidst weeks of protests against the government and with borders largely closed to foreigners, you could safely say that these are not ‘normal’ days for Israeli startups or the Israeli economy. With that said, Israeli Venture Capital funding broke a new record in Q3 2020, according to an IVC report. In September alone, Israeli startups raised $1.2 billion. As a whole, it looks like Israel is headed for another record breaking year. In the first 3 q...

For a growing number of evangelical Christians, Trump is no longer the lesser of two evils

It has long been taken for granted that the majority of evangelical Christians in the United States will vote for Donald Trump.That may well be the case. But there are recent signs that fewer evangelicals will support Trump this time around than in 2016. In an August 2020 poll for Fox News, Trump registered a 38-point advantage over Joe Biden among among white evangelical voters. That is impressive, but it pales in comparison with his 61-point advantage over Hillary Clinton among evangelicals in...

When Politics Threatens to Divide the Bonds of Friendship

I’m a morning runner. I awake before the sun rises and pound the pavement before daybreak. Working out before dawn requires discipline or, in my case, accountability. For the last several years, I’ve met a handful of devoted friends for early runs. In the blanket of morning darkness, we congregate at the local trail. Within minutes of arrival, we canter down the path. Headlights attached to our foreheads illuminate our route and warn of fallen debris. The mileage flies by as the company makes th...
