Last of Summer in Jerusalem

The evenings are cooler.

But when you enter the house and think, ah, so cool,

only to see the thermometer reads 80 F degrees,

you realize the hot weather is still around.

It is the end of summer in Jerusalem, Israel.

Jerusalem Theatre music

The large outdoor stage for musical performances

in the courtyard of the Jerusalem Theater

will be disassembled and stored.

However,

 in the Abu-Tor neighborhood,

Yes Planet movie theater in Jerusalem

Yes Planet Jerusalem has opened.

With 4DX,

and colors,

it reminded me of Jerusalem Cinema City.

New movie theater Jerusalem

It has over-the-top color video selections

but on a much smaller scale,

without fountains and statutes and kosher food.

If you want a non-kosher,

regular McDonald’s meal and a choice of movies on Saturday,

now is your time.

Jerusalem music

And Yes Planet also has a stage for live music.

 No, I have no idea about the name – Yes Planet.

Meanwhile,

it was so good to see that as the weather cooled off

Takana Rishona market

First Station was bustling again.

Besides its regular Farmer’s Market

and stalls selling just about everything,

there was a special Indian Festival,

outdoor summer music

with people seated for live music.

little cars

Some people were much more interested in the cars

than the Indian music, items for sale or the food.

Cooler evenings and people were out.

Now it is back to school.

Time to prepare for Rosh Hashannah and

first sukka of season

 today I saw the first sukkah of the season.

    It’s so sad, that planet will be open on shabbat- in Yerushalayim. If I lived there, & I so wish i was, I would boycott it, on principle.

      It is a private business on private land is the explanation. We will see how well it does. First Station was to be not kosher and open on Shabat. It is open on Shabat, but as eating places open, they are more kosher.
