TEL AVIV -- The suicide bomber aimed for the soul of modern Israel yesterday when he chose a bus on Dizengoff Street for his deadly work."Dizengoff was the shop window of Israel, like 5th Avenue. It is a street that is identified with our existence here," said Yossi Melman, author of the book "The New Israelis."If any single street represents the way the silent majority of Israel sees itself, it is Dizengoff. They view it as a mix of Greenwich Village and Rodeo Drive, a place of chic boutiques, sidewalk cafes and a changing parade of the beautiful and the ordinary.

Eggs, cabbage, celery, beets - not great ingredients for an omelet, perhaps, but ideal for a multimedia genre defined as "puppet cinema. " Welcome to "Planet Egg," a show taking over the Baltimore Theatre Project for the weekend with a mix of edibles, found objects, puppetry, music and live-feed video. It's the brainchild of Zvi Sahar, an Israeli-born, New Jersey-based actor, director and puppeteer. At his parents' home in Israel a few years ago, Sahar was watching his father working on a phone and his mother making sunny-side-up eggs.

TEL AVIV, Israel -- The whine of missiles overhead cried out to her past, said Erika Landau, and her stomach clenched with that old feeling of helplessness.Once again, she was a target as a Jew.Huddled alone in her apartment, the phone dead and the lights knocked off by a nearby rocket blast, the 59-year-old woman found in the dark a fear she had thought was buried.Another madman who does not know her -- who does not know the joy she has brought to students in the school she runs, or know the parents she has helped through psychotherapy, or know even of the delicious soup she makes at home -- this madman seeks to kill her."

TEL AVIV, Israel - Three people were killed and dozens more were injured yesterday in Tel Aviv when a bomb exploded at a currency exchange shop in what police suspect was an attempt by Israeli mobsters to assassinate a rival kingpin. The attack marked the third time in four months that bystanders have been killed in mob-related violence. Police, overwhelmed by Palestinian suicide bombings, vowed to strike back. "What's new and worrying to us is that many innocent people are dying," Israeli police spokesman Gil Kleiman said.

It would have been hard to imagine yesterday afternoon that there could be television any more gripping than Wednesday night's broadcasts by CNN from Baghdad, the Iraqi capital.But then came last night's initial reports out of Israel -- with pictures of reporters in gas masks and the sounds of sirens in the background -- after Tel Aviv was hit by Iraqi missiles.Watching it was an intense, frightening and, at times, surreal experience.Unlike Wednesday night, when the story belonged to CNN after the first 20 minutes, all four major news organizations were in the hunt with live hookups to correspondents in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Carol Benjamin didn't like having the bull's-eye on her back. Competing in the seventh Maccabiah Games in 1965, she despised the pressure that came with being one of the most highly regarded athletes in fencing. And she didn't like the idea that if she didn't come away with a gold medal, she had failed to meet expectations. It was an unpleasant feeling for the then-19-year-old New York native, but it didn't stop her from finishing first and continuing her success in the sport by winning the NCAA championship in 1966.

The 84-year-old father of one of my employees was recently detained at an airport for 10 minutes because he had trimmed the edge of his driver's license so it would fit inside his wallet. Yet on Christmas Day, a 23-year-old Nigerian on a comprehensive terror watch list - whose father warned U.S. authorities of his radical religious views and who paid cash for his ticket and checked no baggage - boarded an international flight for Detroit, apparently without so much as a second glance.

TEL AVIV, Israel -There was a map of the Holy Land on the front flap of my mother's Bible. It was colored in pale pinks and blues and it showed Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Galilee and the Jordan River. The names told the story of the life of Jesus Christ, but to me the map made it real. Older now, I have graduated from dreaming over maps to visiting places embedded in my consciousness, above all Israel. It is just a sliver of land about the size of New Jersey but deep in terms of time. I had only a week to devote to the trip, so I had to be selective.

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Shells fired by Israeli forces hit a United Nations school yesterday, killing at least 30 Palestinians who had sought shelter there on a day when Israeli forces pushed deeper into the Gaza Strip and a Hamas rocket struck a town about 20 miles south of Tel Aviv. Street battles rumbled across the Palestinian enclave and bloodshed showed no signs of ebbing, despite renewed calls by Arab and European leaders for the U.N. Security Council to demand a cease-fire. International pressure on Israel intensified after Palestinian medical officials reported that 75 Gazans were killed yesterday as Israeli forces swept into more densely populated areas.

TEL AVIV, Israel - As Israel celebrates its 60th birthday, there's a remarkable spirit and courage here. Despite the rising tide of Islamism that surrounds the country and the constant threats to destroy it, Israel bustles with energy, commerce, science and the arts. And, most of the time, its people display a convinced optimism that Israel is here to stay. But the image of Auschwitz, or some future version of it, is never far away. Neither is the dread that, in the end, the country could be annihilated - or at least relentlessly worn down.

Yuri Lane takes a little CNN and sprinkles it generously with some MTV in From Tel Aviv to Ramallah: A Beatbox Journey, a one-man hip-hop show about the Middle East conflict that opens today at Center Stage. "It can be hard to find the perfect adjective to describe something," Lane said. "Sometimes, you can express things better with music and sound than with words." The self-titled "hip-hop Jew," who has several television, film and theater credits to his name, uses beatbox, mime, song and dance to tell the story of two towns and two young men striving for normality amid the surrounding strife of the conflict.
