Passover in Israel,
the weather is warm and getting warmer.
Hundreds of thousands of Israelis flock to
beaches, parks and nature trails.
While others come to Jerusalem,
to the Old City and the Kotel,
the Western Wall, as always was packed
for the Priestly Blessing, the Birchat Kohanim.
However, there are new attractions this year,
including the 3-D artist drawings on the streets
around Ben Yehuda Street and Mall area.
This one was a bit too realistic for me,
having spent hours in the kitchen preparing special holiday food.
There are barriers around the art pieces,
so watch where you walk.
Another piece down the street was
a drawing of a foot bridge over a pond.
If the streets get too hot with this heat wave coming in,
retreating to the museums is a very popular option.
As every year on the Passover holiday
children are admitted for free to most museums.
Pharaoh is the new exhibit at the Israel Museum.
I hope to get back for a second look soon.
It’s the last chance for Rivers of Babylon exhibit
at the Bible Lands Museum in Jerusalem.
The special watches exhibit is free for all
at the Islamic Museum.
A costly attraction for families is the
GeekPicNic in Gan Sacher, Sacher Park.
No food allowed to come into the park for a picnic,
is hot topic of a Facebook discussion.
I remember having food taken from me
by security at an Israeli hospital because of Passover.
Passover food restrictions are severe NO food allowed,
even if you say it is Kosher for Passover.
back to the kitchen,
big family get-together is planned for today.
How long do you think these nut cookies will last?
Colorful signs line the Jerusalem streets,
wishing all a Happy Pesach,
