Holy sh*t.(Anwar Amro/AFP/Getty Images)

• Saturday, a day which will live in infamy, Israel lost the hummus title to its enemy to the north. [Ynet]

• A profile of the Israeli company Teva, the world’s biggest maker of generic drugs. The owner describes it thusly: “We’re kibbutzniks.” [NYT]

• The YamulKap. Pretty self-explanatory, really. [YamulKap]

• An epic takedown of Harold Bloom’s review of Anthony Julius’s book on British anti-Semitism. [Jewcy]

• The volcanic ash has officially reached Israel, and has even disrupted a few flights! Wait, why does this seem vaguely exciting? [Arutz Sheva]

• MTV is throwing a massive party in Israel this summer. In addition to Israeli pop stars, Pink (who is Jewish!) and Jay-Z (who is not!) will perform. [Ynet]

Here’s Jay-Z killing it on this past weekend’s Saturday Night Live.

It is not “the owner” of Teva who said “we are kiibutzniks”. Teva is publicly traded and owned. It was the head of US operations.
