Though most everyone seems to be doing the Harlem Shake,
we have not seen anyone doing it yet on the streets of Jerusalem, Israel,
so decided to share a few favorite signs instead.
Signs are an extremely important form of communication
in many neighborhoods.
Notices of the death of revered former Supreme Court judge Menachem Alon
and renowned thinker David Hartman were prominent this week.
1. This misspelled sign from last year is still a favorite.
2. No words needed here, but here’s hoping there are better directions for
the Jerusalem Marathon that is to run next week on Friday, March 1.
3. Do you really think a motorcycle will not go on a foot path because
of this sign if the riders think they have enough room to get through?
4. The first time seeing the signs at the tax offices can cause a panic attack.
The Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency met this week.
5. But how many people remember this United Palestine Appeal sign?
6. There are new street signs on “The President’s” Street.
7. But there are other Presidents’ streets in Jerusalem, these
8. two are named for US presidents honored on February 18 in the US.
9. A favorite sign this time of year is this street named for Queen Esther.
10. Here is a sign for the new exhibit at the Israel Museum on King Herod.
Arab violence has increased outside the Jerusalem area.
The new government still is not in place, however,
it is interesting that the Israeli press (not a Purim joke)
11. has reported that this pistachio ice cream is the Prime Minister’s favorite,
and he requested NIS 10,000’s worth of it in this year’s budget.
12. Purim is a few days away, so will end with an all time favorite sign
as the bus soon will say “Happy Purim.”
