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.
The large outdoor stage for musical performances
in the courtyard of the Jerusalem Theater
will be disassembled and stored.
in the Abu-Tor neighborhood,
new and to be open on Shabbat,
Yes Planet Jerusalem has opened.
it reminded me of Jerusalem Cinema City.
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.
And Yes Planet also has a stage for live music.
No, I have no idea about the name – Yes Planet.
it was so good to see that as the weather cooled off
First Station was bustling again.
Besides its regular Farmer’s Market
and stalls selling just about everything,
there was a special Indian Festival,
with people seated for live music.
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
today I saw the first sukkah of the season.
