The experiment that reveals: This is what the Bank of Israel’s digital shekel will look like


Last week, the Bank of Israel published the results of its digital shekel experiment. The road to adopting a digital shekel in Israel is still long, but the bank’s document provides a glimpse into the future of world money in general and the country in particular. However, even before diving into the digital shekel, it is worthwhile to fully understand the background behind promoting the project.

The original purpose of the crypto was to replace the financial system, and to establish an alternative economy. The idea was founded after the 2008 crisis in which, at least, crypto proponents claim, the system made irrelevant decisions and rescued the banks, which made failed investments in mortgage-backed securities – at the expense of citizens.

At the core of crypto is the principle of decentralization: users make decisions, not a small group. In addition, there is no access restriction – anyone can be part of the financial “game”. In the past decade, the cryptographic system has become popular, especially in developing countries where citizens have difficulty accessing the traditional banking system. Two factors that developed in it challenged the central banks of the world: the first is currencies that wanted to issue giant companies like Meta, and the second is the stable currencies that are pegged to the value of an existing currency like the dollar or the euro. These currencies, which are not as volatile as regular cryptocurrencies, have become popular, and their volume is growing.

The stable currencies are in fact a promise that the currency will be equal to the value of the currency attached to it at any given moment, and for that purpose reserves are needed. This launching point between digital currency value and real currency value has an impact on traditional money. It has been a catalyst for central banks to develop a national digital currency – CBDC (Central Bank Digital Currency), which will allow for fast transfers and remote payments, while sending the currency directly from wallet to wallet. Many countries around the world are currently experimenting with the CBDC, studying the benefits of the system and its dilemmas. This is followed by the Bank of Israel’s experiment, and these are the insights from it.

Aviv Gefen in Samaria Concert - "Right and Left is a piece of nonsense"

Aviv Gefen in first concert in Samaria. In the framework of various summer events of the Samaria Regional Council, for the first time the singer Aviv Gefen was a guest for a personal show. The concert took place in an amphitheater in the village of Sil'eet before 1,200 participants and the night lights of Gush Dan area.

During the show Gefen told about his decision several years ago that made him change his relation to specific communities. "So fun to be here for the first time, it's a wonderful place with beautiful people. Today, from the height of my age, I can say after all the years, I've missed on a lot of people because of many issues, because I've painted people in convenient colors for me, in truth, in my view today Right and Left is a piece of nonsense", Gefen surprised during the show.


From the author of "We're a f@@d up generation"...

The Hebrew identity Revolution
Story about the Jewish book shelf | Manitou

Manitou: I want to tell You a story, maybe I already told some years ago. About 30 years ago, I've heard on the radio, it was specifically before the Passover, an interview with someone, how do You say it on the radio?

Student: Interviewer?

Manitou: Not exactly, You'll understand immediately, and tell me which word should be used.

He was going to every apartment, typical Israeli homes, and his question was - why Jewish homes have so many books?

Because it's different from society to society. There are books, but not so much, scholars have libraries, well, book sellers have books, but among Jews, You enter an apartment and immediately, from the beginning You see books. Also in the rooms, within the rooms of the rooms, there're books.

So he made a report about this.

And specifically among the religious, so he went to religious homes and saw these big books, You see the Talmud and all that.

Then he asked, not only out of curiosity, but irony, he asked the homeowner - "do You think You'll read this and become wise?"

The homeowner answered - "Listen habibi, one has to be wise first, to read all this."


You know what? Manitou succeeded! | Rabbi Cherk with Yishai Riboi at the 100th Anniversary Conference of Manitou

You know what? Manitou succeeded!
When You see Yishay Ribo, You see the Jews who became a Hebrew. This is the success of the redemption process as described by Manitou.

Only one question remains - Manitou, towards what? Towards what do we continue? I once asked Manitou about the next stage of the redemption. After several moments of thought, answered - "Torah for the nations of the world". The time has come for us to pass the universal message of Judaism. We have nothing to fear!

One of the greatest philosophers of the nations of the world, Russo, said - "when the Jews have their state with schools and universities in which they can express themselves without fear, only then do we know what they have to tell us".

Manitou is who taught us what we have to tell the nations of the world, the entire humanity. Baruch HaShem we have began a process in which the nations of the world approach us asking questions.

Manitou used to ask whether we would have answers?! And the answer is, yes, Manitou's teaching the nations what is the unity of traits, the uniqueness of morality, the morality of Judaism, what we have to teach the world about the relationship between the Creator and the created, all these are in our school.

Manitou will be our light, that will light the entire world.
Be blessed.

Yishay Ribo - Seder Ha'Avodah (The Service Order)

He entered the place he entered and stood in the place he stood
Washed his hands and feet, immersed, raised and dried himself,
He came from the place he came and went to the place he went
Stripped off the weekday clothes and donned white garments

And thus he would say, HaShem please,
Atone for the sins, transgressions and iniquities,
Which I sinned before You - I and my household
And if a human could recall the flaws, deficiencies, sins and transgressions,
Surely would count thus, one, one and one, one and two, one and three, one and four,
Would despair, unable to bear the taste of sin, shame, the missed opportunity, the loss

Then the priests and the nation who stand in the courtyard
When they heard the explicit Name of HaShem come out from
The mouth of the High Priest, would bow and prostrate, falling on their face

- Blessed be the Name of the glory of His Kingdom for ever and ever...

He stepped to the place he had stepped, his face towards the holy,
Without stain, his mouth and actions at one, he came from the place he came,
And went to the place he went, stripped off the white garments donning clothes of gold

And thus he would say, HaShem please...
And if a human could recall all the kindness, good, all the compassion and all the salvation,
Surely he would count thus, one, one and one, one and two, one of a thousand, thousands
Of thousands and myriad myriads of wondrous miracles You have done for us day and night

Then the priests and the nation who stand in the courtyard
When they heard the explicit Name of HaShem come out from
The mouth of the High Priest, would bow and prostrate, falling on their face

- Blessed be the Name of the glory of His Kingdom for ever and ever...

He left the place that he left and trembled in the place where he stood
Stripped off the golden clothes and donned his own clothes
And all the nation and the priests escorted him home
It was a holiday for all who loved him, because
He had attained forgiveness for all Israel

Happy is the nation for whom it is so!
Happy is the nation who's G-d is HaShem!

Then the priests and the nation who stand in the courtyard...
