New Stop in Jerusalem at First Station

Israel’s universities finally started today “after the chagim.”

 I am wondering how long I will be trying to catch up on things,

now that the holiday season is officially over?

The bins in front of Beit Hanassi, the Israeli President’s house were full

after Sukkot,  after the sukkah was taken down until next year.

I wrote an entire blog post on Sukkot favorites,

and I left out one of the most important items.

The new-old Jerusalem train station, First Station,

has already become an important tourist stop. 

The Jerusalem March began as usual at Gan Sacher, Sacher Park,

but this year for the first time it ended at First Station.

Not only is Fresh kosher, but special kosher,

(After many years, there still in no chief rabbi for Jerusalem, Israel)

is what many tourists want and seek out,

in addition to shade from the mid-day sun.
