Israel came in next-to-last at the annual Eurovision song contest. Israel’s representative to Sunday night’s competition in Athens, Black Hebrew community member Eddie Butler, won only four points for his ballad “Zeh Hazman,” or “Now Is the Time.” The low ranking means that Israel could be knocked out of next year’s Eurovision at the semifinal stage. Also, a Ukrainian Jewish woman, Tanya Liberman, who performs under the name Tina Karol, came in seventh.
