Yutopia Blog – Guitar chords for Israeli Music

I ran across this treasure recently.  This Rabbi is creating a list of israeli songs with guitar chords.  Its simple and beautiful.  http://yutopia.yucs.org/chords/fulllist.php While its by no means exhaustive, they have a ton of songs (over 250 as of this post) and it seems to  be growing.  Enjoy. 

Walla

My favorite site for news in Hebrew is Walla.  The Hebrew site is at: http://www.walla.co.il/ .  They have pretty good radio stations too – if you want to listen to music in Hebrew but make your selections from an English menu go here: http://radio.walla.co.il/ts.cgi?tsscript=index.english&fg=1

Ynet

This site is a terrific news site for Israel, they offer an English version and a Hebrew version.  http://www.ynetnews.com/ and http://www.ynet.co.il/ Its great practice to read the Hebrew version, and then flip over to the English when you don’t understand something.  The company has a great product too called the Megaphone run by Collactive at this address: http://my.ynet.co.il/collative/  The idea behind the Megaphone is that you get desktop delivery of hot news, and a way to proactively respond to legislators, etc. about the news.  Its a really powerful community tool.
