June in Jerusalem

Fires are raging.

The sky is hazy.

Israeli flags at Flag Dance for Yom Yerushalyim

The flags from Yom Yerushalayim,

Jerusalem Day, are slowly being put away.

signs for Shavuot learning programs

The signs announcing dozens of options

for learning on Shavuot will soon be covered over.

The tens of thousands of visitors

who walked the holiday streets have gone home.

It is June,

and summer has arrived in Jerusalem, Israel.

dry grass of summer

The grasses are tinder, ready

 to catch on fire and burn out of control.

But then,

Bright orange flowers in Jerusalem summer

there are desert flowers popping with color,

Lions' Park Jerusalem Israel

 and the Lions’ Fountain looks tempting and cool.

In Jerusalem of contrasts,

Hansen House entrance

the old Hansen House gates were opened to

Innovation of Amazon this week.

Hansen House animals from Design Week in garden

The animals from Design Week were still in its gardens.

I marvel at the changes at every new

 technology event hosted at Hansen.

Changes are evident at First Station as well,

life is beautiful sign first station

with a new sign Life is Beautiful greets on one wall.

While inside the area is being prepared

Hebrew Book Week at First Station in Jerusalem Israel

again to host the annual Hebrew Book Week.

The holidays are over.

It’s June graduation and conference time.

 For the first time ever,

Herzliya conference in Beit Hanasi

the Herzliya Conference opened at Beit Hanasi,

the Israeli President’s House, with international dignitaries

and Israeli political leaders,

and of course plenty of speeches.

I wanted to know

Naftali Bennett and ARyeh Deri t Beit Hanasi

what MK Naftali Bennett and MK Aryeh Deri

Aryeh Deri and Naftali Bennett at Beit Hansi

were talking about that was so amusing.

Besides speeches and conferences,

there are too many musical programs to list.

And of course,

June is also wedding time.

Time to get ready to go…
