1000 Real Jerusalem Streets


Rain and more rain in Jerusalem, Israel.

Trying to decide what to share this week,

I revert to the weekly Torah portion of Mishpatim, Laws.

לֹ֥א תִשָּׂ֖א שֵׁ֣מַע שָׁ֑וְא אַל־תָּ֤שֶׁת יָֽדְךָ֙ עִם־רָשָׁ֔ע לִהְיֹ֖ת עֵ֥ד חָמָֽס׃

Not to share the false things you hear. 

Thus no fake news, but on The Real Jerusalem Streets – not all is good.

Cherry tree in bloom in Jerusalem Israel

The rain was good for the cherry trees in bloom.

Jerusalem Israel street repaved

Continuing construction on Jerusalem streets not so good for residents.

I will spare you the images of stopped traffic and ripped up concrete.

Spelling mistakes in English on Hebrew signs in Jerusalem Israel

However, this sign posted on the Jerusalem corner is a new favorite.

This is post number 1000 from the Real Jerusalem Streets.

This is a milestone post –

a time to remember for International Women’s Day and Israel Apartheid Week:

Israeli Apartheid?

Nine years ago it took off and went viral, best RJS days of views ever.

Shame I was such a newbie, in Eilat, and did not follow up.

The next year, in 2012, also for International Women’s Day,

15 Real Photos of Arab Girls was published.

Those girls keep on going with over 25,000 views in the last 3 years.

Sign for Jerusalem Washington Street.

Another year, and the US Presidents Day and Conference of Presidents Leadership Mission have come and gone, but Washington Street in Jerusalem remains and its sign is lit up at night, a popular image to share.

Presidents was an early post and needed heavy editing to share.

The Jewish Agency Board of Governors is meeting only in Tel Aviv this year.

No jokes about rocket science or scientists.

Mars exploration scientist in Jerusalem

NASA’s Mars exploration scientist Nagin Cox was in Jerusalem at the American Cultural Center and concluded with the news that the countdown to the next launch is underway.

Mars exploration robot images

These NASA images of Mars look like they were taken in the Negev outside of Eilat.

Jerusalem King George Street hotel construction

While back in Jerusalem, new hotels under construction are changing the skyline.

Muslim women shopping in Jerusalem Mamilla Mall

The shops in Mamilla Mall have changed over the years, but the Arab women and girls are a regular sight, shopping and eating in the cafes.

So much has changed over the years on the Jerusalem streets.

So much has remained the same.

    Keep up the good work for 1000 more posts and beyond! The format is fine. Wouldn’t mind seeing a bit more about religious life and a bit less about politics. But that’s just me… 😉

      Yes, trying to stay away from politics, but seems to slip into most everything. Maybe a good time to just walk to Kotel with no agenda other than the sun finally appeared.
