Passover has ended.
I used 150 eggs, large quantities of potatoes, onions,
sugar and chocolate this week,
and not one cookie or crumb of cake is left in the house.
However, there are still a few holiday leftovers that I would like to share.
Flags lined Israel Highway #6 for millions of people on their holiday trips,
while in Jerusalem you could find dancing on the streets
and families dressed in their holiday finest.
Crowds filled Gan Sacher, Sacher Park.
At times there seemed to be more tents than during “The Occupy Protest”
and so much smoke that I made the mistake of calling it “Gan Smoker.”
Gan Sacher is big enough, though, to find a quiet spot
for conversation, grilled meat and a bottle wine.
No need to go hungry in Jerusalem for lack of Passover food,
these matzah sandwiches were for sale across from the Central Bus station,
where “Happy Holiday of Freedom” signs and Israeli flags flew above.
I wrote the last post about the Aleh Jerusalem March
(make sure you haven’t missed it)
and the impressive young volunteers,
but these two children sharing a bag of potato chips were my favorite.
Those are a few favorite Passover leftovers, so that’s it…
until next year, when the buses again say,
” Kosher and Happy Passover.”

Thank you so much Annie!
I love this post, you really captured the chag!
These photos are so great and capture so much of the details I never catch during the holidays. I wasn’t in Jerusalem at all last week and love being able to see what was going on there. Thanks for sharing them! = )
Glad you like them & feel free to share
great pics, thanx for sending.
Always love to hear from you and get such positive feedback
The blue and white of our Flag flying proudly everywhere, on streets, cars, homes – Magen of David – the protection of David always brings a lump to my throat – today being Holocaust Day is special and traumatic and our Jewish Flag is inspirational and a comfort.
Please see my post today in the Times of Israel, I think you will like it http://t.co/Kld5MPvG more than just the flag…
Thought of you as I did the new post this morning…had to get in a few of those flags.
Thanks for the flags and the thought. Shabat Shalom to all.
