Re:"True church" in Hebrew wiki[edit]

I give my sincere apologies if the church beliefs of my denomination has offended you in any way (I am merely translating our church beliefs into the wonderful and unique Hebrew language). Perhaps you can help change the phrase "Our Lord" to "The Lord Jesus" to make it more consistent.

Regards --Jose77 09:16, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

I am not offended by the contents. The problem was the use of the first person terminology, which implies the reader is a co-believer, which is not always true. I will try to fix the phrasing a bit. DGtal 09:21, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Great, thanks.[edit]

Yes, you were too quick for me. I added the interwiki link a few minutes before I saved the English article, hence for a brief period of time it had no target. Anyway, happy it's all good now. Thanks for being on top of things! Kol tuv. Dfass 19:03, 31 October 2006 (UTC)

Your contact info[edit]

Hi DGtal: You have not enabled your Wikipedia Email feature in your "tool box" on the left hand side of your user page. Sometimes editors overlook that when it's a useful way of staying in touch with other editors. Best wishes. Shabbat Shalom, IZAK 13:57, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

I don't too much in the English Wiki except interwiki, but I will enable it. Shabbat Shalom, DGtal 22:15, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

Peter Atkins divorce date[edit]

Hello, I changed the divorce date because I noticed that it was orginally given as 2005 on the Atkins article, but 2003 on his ex-wife's (Susan Greenfield) article. The Observer seems to imply that they divorced in 2003 ("Susan has lived here since 2003, after her highly publicised divorce from fellow Oxford professor Peter Atkins.") This site says that they announced their "impending divorce" in 2003. - Gemtiger 21:43, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Sure thing. I appreciate your checking, and I'll go change it on Greenfield's page as well. - Gemtiger 22:19, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Scholem photo[edit]

Thanks a lot for putting Scholem's photo back where it belonged. warshy 13:10, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Re Image:Sir Jonathan Sacks (small).jpg[edit]

Hi David,

I replaces this with a free use image I found on Flickr of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. I suggest you get this one deleted...

Thanks for finding and uploading it!  I've now deleted the above. Best wishes, David Kernow (talk) 00:39, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Re: Request for revision[edit]

I think if you went ahead and changed it to a "do not use this template, please find a more appropriate template, such as one listed below", no one would object. It seemed to be a reasonably accepted solution in the debate. ^demon[omg plz] 15:53, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Line of succession to the Israeli throne[edit]

I just referred to information within the Wikipedia – I found other articles in the encyclopedia with much less information so I don't understand your request... Louis88 16:38, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

President of Israel[edit]

No worries. It was a mess, and the inclusion of the stand-ins in the list was annoying me. I also intend to remove the President boxes from their articles and replace them with the standard MK one. Number 57 08:58, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

I personally don't like MK templates in President pages. It's a different type of position. DGtal 10:25, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
I meant from the stand-ins (e.g. Yosef Sprinzak). Number 57 19:29, 29 June 2007 (UTC)
In that case, I happily agree. You can of course add it as his top job. DGtal 19:09, 30 June 2007 (UTC)
Ugh, God, I can't believe I forgot that!Therequiembellishere 13:28, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Jewish Gordons[edit]

If you have anymore information about the history of the Jewish Gordons I would be very interested to hear it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by ScrollMaker (talkcontribs) 22:02, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

There is no one history, as most Jewish Gordon's are not related. Most of them got the name from Eastern Europe, but in my case the name probably came from a bottle of Gin. DGtal (talk) 06:52, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

Please, you could translate in Hebrew the article Fritz Muliar and in Yiddish the articles Martin Weinek and Fritz Muliar? I thank you in advance![edit]

Good morning to you, Greetings from Campora San Giovanni. I write you regarding these articles, one if you can write in Hebrew and Yiddish: Muliar in fact it is of Jewish religion, grown with a Jewish stepfather of Russian origin. He fluently speaks over the German and the English, also the Hebrew and the Yiddish one. Therefore before him footsteps to good life, would want that he read or if not he doesn't know how to use the computer they made to read its biography in Hebrew and Yiddish, it is at work one worth of his that has done during the Second World war. For Weinek (or Vaynek) he is also an actor of the Kommissar Rex, but toward of him I feed a great respect in his comparisons. I would also want for him one biography of his in Yiddish, even if it is Christian. Could you do me this favor kindly? I will reciprocate the favor translating in Italian and Sicilian: a biography or a geographical article to your liking, in the Wikipedia Italiana they are biographer and geographer. In attends him of one certain answer of yours I in advance thank you and I offer you the regards from Campora San Giovanni, my village native. I thank you once more!--Lodewijk Vadacchino (talk) 11:02, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Hello. My Yiddish level is very low, so I cannot translate to or from it. About Fritz Muliar - I am far from the subject of acting, so I cannot create a reasonable tarnslation. Sorry, DGtal (talk) 13:29, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Re: Category:Islam in the United States[edit]

Category:Islam in the United States - partly about relationship between US govt. and Islam as religion

Hi, there. I removed your addition of Category:Islam in the United States to Barack Obama speech at Cairo University, 2009. I don't think the article really fits that category (and I watched the speech live and read the transcript). Per the previous press briefing by Robert Gibbs, "The speech will be about America's relations with the Muslim world." It's not about or focused on Islam in the United States. Yes, references to the American tradition of freedom of religion and the standard of living and practice of Muslims in the United States was briefly mentioned, but that isn't the main theme. If you feel strongly about this, let me know. Thanks. Viriditas (talk) 01:48, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for explaining your point of view, which is logical and therefore correct. If you happen to ever create Category:Islam and the United States the speech could fit in. Good day. DGtal (talk) 20:59, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

Chabad Library[edit]

Then feel free to move it to the proper name if you think that's the name. I moved it from where it was because "Chabad library" was clearly wrong and one of the sources used used the form I used. 01:38, 21 January 2010 (UTC)


I saw you removed the interwiki from Ani Ma'amin. It was correct, but there is a problem with the rendition of the brackets from the Hebrew. Try this link. Perhaps you have any idea how to fix the interwiki? Debresser (talk) 19:06, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

The iw was incorrect. The article in hebrew is to a song by Shaul Tchernichovsky, but the english article takes about a song/line based on Rambam's 13 principles. BTW, the general solution to iw brackets is writing [[he: and the "copy paste" the he articles name. DGtal (talk) 08:57, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
You're right. Thanks. Debresser (talk) 09:09, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Disambiguation link notification for August 30[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Zvi Ofer, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Medal of Valor (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Rafiah Yam[edit]

In the article Rafiah Yam you have twice removed the category Villages depopulated during the Arab–Israeli conflict. It is consistently in every former Gush Katif village. Why should this one be done differently than all the others? - Galatz (talk) 13:17, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

It shouldn't. I believe the category should be removed from all those articles, but in practice I only notices this one. If I am incorrect the category should include over 400 articles now in the various subcategories of the category we are discussing. DGtal (talk) 13:24, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

Deaths in 2015[edit]

Hello. When adding an entry to the Deaths page, please remember to also add a source, if available. If one is not, you may ask for assistance at the talk page. Thank you. — Wyliepedia 11:07, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

In this case there is a problem. I know from a 200% reliable source (a family member) he passed away this morning but very sadly no local site has as yet run a story about it. DGtal (talk) 13:52, 24 March 2015 (UTC)

One Israel (1980)[edit]

Do you have a source for the party being disestablished in 1981? Cheers, Number 57 11:18, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

The article says it lost in the 1981 elections and I saw nowhere any sign of later activity. Note that before 1992 party lists and Knesset factions were not necessarily attached to a legal entity, so when the list loses never to return it's game over. DGtal (talk) 11:38, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

Yael Dowker[edit]

"Hello, can you provide a source relating to the death of Yael Dowker?"

I'm not sure if this is the correct way to reply - sorry if it's not!

I was a friend of Yael, and I am also a friend of her daughter - Ann Dowker at Oxford University. Ann and Yael eschewed any publicity generally, and Ann took that approach when her mother died.

Hope that helps. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Peetm (talkcontribs) 10:30, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
