Shabbat Shalom

An old favorite is the Jerusalem, Israel buses

with their special greetings for Passover,

“Happy and Kosher Passover.”

This bus is passing what will be a new favorite.

The Waldorf-Astoria Hotel is finally open,

more on that soon,

but for now only time to wish all a

Great holiday

and

Shabbat Shalom!

Passover in Jerusalem: Old and New

There are the old familiar images for Passover in Jerusalem, Israel,

image garbage bin, photo rubbish, picture holiday mess

garbage bins are overflowing, even though there are extra pick-ups;

image Passover, photo Passover,

shopping carts are overflowing;

image kosher for passover, photo getting ready for Passover, picture Peashc preparations

and lots of large pots of water are boiling with steam rising.

But always there is something new.

Spring wildflowers have grown in the weeds,

a site where last year a brush fire left only scorched earth.

New warning signs at some major street crossings were painted on side walks.

But as most everything in Jerusalem, Israel, there was a bit of contention,

a corner near the Old City had the words only in Arabic,

but was painted over yesterday in Hebrew before I got there.

Then there are those construction cranes popping up like weeds

and many new luxury buildings.

But with any new construction

are the findings from ancient times that were hidden under the streets.

This Passover one very hot spot to visit is

the new Cinema City complex.

More than just movie theaters,

you can find all kinds of food,

and I assume plenty of it will be kosher for Passover.

For Passover and all year round, there is Moses,

not crossing the Red Sea, but with 10 commandments.

And posted all over are the new holiday signs,

happy holiday of spring in Jerusalem, Israel.

חג שמח!

Happy Holiday!

Have a great Passover all,

I really must get back to my cleaning.
